View To A Drive

This week, the main subject of your photo must be the view that you see outside of your vehicle while it is in motion. This vehicle may be an automobile, a bus, a van, etc. It must be a vehicle moving on the ground, so a view from an airplane window does not qualify. It must also be a powered vehicle, so a view while you're riding a bicycle does not count.

NOTE: It must not be taken while you are driving, and therefore, a view from the driver's seat will be disqualified. Any photo that is perceived to be taken by breaking the local driving/road laws will also be disqualified.

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.

Funnel cloud in Calgary, Alberta, that touched down on Tsuu T'ina Reserve. Taken from a bus. As the cloud was forming a man on the bus exclaimed: "I'm from Oklahoma, lived there for 30 years, that's a tornado!". We rarely if ever get tornadoes in the foothills.

I have a movie shot while driving with head mounted GoPro. Perfectly safe, no laws broken. Just saying.

😲😲 Wow! that's incredible! The first tornado I ever saw was a twin tornado in Missouri! It was so mesmerizing! I wanted to stay outside and watch it forever until I thought of the flying monkeys in Wizard of oz 😬

I'm helping @morrobay again this week to post his picture, since he still is having pandemic-related Internet access issues.

Yikes! It doesn't look like a Monorail, but I'm guessing that is from one of the Disney parks? :smile:

Taken from a boat in motion. Unsure if this complies with rules. If not, please DQ.

Pickering to Whitby heritage railway.

They claim there was a railway station at Pickering before there was one in London. But looking into this it seems the trains were horse-drawn. Still steam trains were there not long after.

Taken during the epidemic I see, and someone still has the Viking spirit.
