We are announcing a fun activity to have a photo competition each month.

There two sets of rules:

  • Rules that are always applicable.
  • Rules that are applicable to a particular theme of competition (Will typically be referred as 'Rules for :MonthName:')

Rules that are always applicable are as follows:

  1. One photo per answer, and no more than 5 answers per user per month.
  2. Post only photos taken by yourself.
  3. All entries should include a line of text with the location and subject of the photo and the date the photo was taken
  4. Refrain from posting sensitive/debatable content
  5. There isn't a prize money/item/award as such. Respect and appreciation is what you earn here.

Rules for December are as follows:

  1. It has to be a picture of a trail or a hiking path
  2. The photo should not include people as important part of the picture. If unavoidable, people can be included as long as they are not recognisable.
  3. No entries/photos should be posted before midnight, 1st of December 2018, voting will be applicable till midnight 31st of December and to be clear, we use UTC, just like the site itself.
  4. There is no constraint on when the photo must have been taken.

Good luck!


Congratulations to Shan-X! Our winner with 10 votes at end of the competition.

    I think Sue's request is totally valid and would like her being able to also post the pictures of her husband. – Paul Paulsen Dec 15 '18 at 14:44

    okay @WedaPashi, admit it. You just started this to show off your gorgeous photos! :D – Paul Paulsen Dec 15 '18 at 15:36
  • @Paul: Hahaha, okay, I admit it if that works :D Anyways, it is a lot of fun. Where have you been? – WedaPashi Dec 16 '18 at 2:37
  • It is a lot of fun, and a great idea! I've been here and there, from time to time visiting as reader here, but was focused too much on other things to participate here a lot. I hope this will be a little different in the next time, but can't promise anything ;) – Paul Paulsen Dec 16 '18 at 9:24

  • wow, that's beautiful! Which time of the year is it? – Paul Paulsen Jan 3 at 9:53
  • That was mid august. It was still raining several times a day, but otherwise nice weather. According to locals, it should have started snowing a month later, so july/august should be the ideal time if you want to visit. Just don't go when Fjäll Raven Classics floods the area with tourists. – Dynat Jan 3 at 13:40
  • Thanks, that's good to know :) – Paul Paulsen Jan 5 at 13:31

The ghostly forests of the Goecha la trail, Sikkim, India. The rhododendrons provide a colorful feel to an otherwise scary forest. Circa May 2017.

  • Gorgeous, but what is the black dot in the sky? It looks like a skier taking a BIG jump. – ab2 Jan 3 at 0:50
  • @ab2 It's a bird. A vulture; probably one of the in Cuba omnipresent turkey vultures. But I can see what you mean, although I would interpret it as a snowboarder. :D – Paul Paulsen Jan 3 at 9:52
