Autumn

For many of us in the Northern Hemisphere, autumn is in full swing. So the theme this week is on this season of the year. Please make sure that there is a clear depiction of the season in your photo.

Contest Rules:

1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Size limitations: Your photo is only limited to the file size limitation set by PhysicsForums. However, your may want to consider reducing the size of your photo if the file size exceeds 1 Mb. If your file is being hosted elsewhere, I will have to see how it is being displayed here, and I may ask you to resize and resubmit if it causes problems.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how. Alternatively, you may simply upload your image file to PF, and then have the full image displayed in your post.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawal by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. The photo of the subject must be something that you took directly, not via in intermediary medium, and not taken by someone else. Unless otherwise noted, a photo of another photo, painting, print, etc. does not qualify.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

Zz.

Currently living in a country that doesn't experience seasons, this one was hard. I found an old photo of mine of some shoes in an autumn colored tree, which hopefully meets the cut.

Fun fact: the shoes represent territory of drug dealers.

Very cute @Dr. Courtney -- is that your son? Autumn can be a time to re-stock the freezer and make jerky. :smile:

Yes, my son. I was hoping someone would get the connection between fall and deer season.

Autumn by the church.

This flower is known as Kash in Bengali. It has a special importance in our culture, because its presence signifies the arrival of autumn and with it, the festival very close to our hearts, Durga Puja.

Is it flower, or ear with seeds? (ear, or perhaps spike? not sure about a correct English word here)

It is the flower of a grass-type plant. As per Wikipedia, the grass is Saccharum spontaneum.

JBA's pic doesn't look like anything else associated with Houston, Texas, though I've never been there, (nor felt the lack till I saw this :oldbiggrin: ).

I have a picture from the Smokey Mountain that resembles that. So definitely does not look like a scene in Texas that I'm familiar with either. NE Texas maybe?

You may want to save that for another contest but I have no idea what type of contest that would be: Drug Dealers and their turf: Post quickly before getting a shank up your ribs?

:doh: Just struck me. I didn't know you had autumn in America, I thought you just had fall. If you have both is there any difference between them?

And I thought they had neither, only Indian Summer. Do they have all three of them, maybe even a Golden October?

Yes, actually. Regional preferences for which name is used. Same season though: the one where the leaves fall.
