I’m teaming up with Rebecca of Bumbles and Light, Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud and Faith of Sweet Violet for the Poetic Winter Photography Challenge – an inspiring 4-week photo challenge aimed at capturing the poetic beauty of winter through photography.

Just a few details:
All are welcome regardless of skill level, time commitment and geographic location.

Each Friday, we'll have freebies, discounts to some of the hottest photography resources, photography tips and inspirational quotes or poems to get your creative photography juices flowing.

Share your favorite images inspired by the weekly prompt. The linky will remain open from 9am Friday – 9am Thursday CST. Link directly to your Poetic Winter blog post or Flickr photo, not your blog’s home page or Flickr Photostream.

Feel free to share your photos in our Poetic Winter Flickr Group as well and don’t forget to visit and comment on the previous entry in the linky list.

This time around, we'll be pinning our favorite photos to the Poetic Winter Pinterest Board. Not on Pinterest and need an invite? Let me know in the comments section and I'll be more than happy to send you one.

And last, but not least, don't forget to grab our lovely button.




Next week’s prompt will be warmth. For a complete list of upcoming prompts, head on over to the Poetic Winter Challenge Page.

Make sure to stop by Kristi's place at Live and Love out Loud for a texture freebie and a short tutorial. The texture is a limited edition one of a kind just for you compliments of Life-n-Reflection.
