Amazing Nature Contest - December 2019 - #03

Hello Nature Lovers !

20191215_184700.jpg

I would like to cordially invite you to another great week of the Amazing Nature Contest. There were already so many excellent entries regarding how amazing nature can be in the past episodes and there is still so much more to see ^^ .. To participate in #amazingnature just create a post that shows how amazing nature is for you personally. This can be anything from a beautiful flower or animal to an astonishing sunset.


What is the Purpose of the Contest ?

I am a huge lover of nature and really enjoy to take pictures of all the lovely things that surround me every day, no matter if those are plants, animals or landscapes. I found Steemit to be a brilliant place to find and watch nature pictures from all over the world. There is such a diversity of great content out there, thanks to all of you, from different perspectives and out of various motivations. I would like to collect all those beautiful snapshots and their amazing stories in a weekly compilation so that you can all benefit from the beauty that we are facing all the time, but so often are not able to appreciate in the modern times we are living in.

Contest Rules :

As this is a proper contest be so kind and follow those simple contest rules. Otherwise, to stay fair to those who do, I have to disqualify you from the winning places !

  • Use #amazingnature as FIRST TAG and topic of the post and CLEARLY MENTION that your post is an ENTRY for this contest. This assures that this contest can grow and reach out to as many nature lovers as possible.

  • Clearly STATE why those pictures are representing YOUR AMAZING NATURE. This is an essential part of this contest.
  • Drop the LINK to your post IN THE COMMENTS below so all participants can find it easily and fully enjoy this weekly collection. You can add a picture if you like.
  • Please submit only one post per contest. Of course you can do more, but I will stick to one entry per Steemian.

As nature covers an extreme wide range there is really anything possible. Amazing Natures categories could be anything from the following topics:

I will always try my best to link and present all participants of Amazing Nature in the entries section of the announcement posts that will be published roughly one week later during the weekend. This way you will have a nice compilation of them all. As an special feature, the new title picture of the contest will be created from the entry of the contest winner. This time it is from @elkezaksek.

THIS WEEKS WINNERS



Here we have another really amazing entry from @elkezaksek. She was comfortably sitting in the garden of her accommodation in Jinja, Uganda, when this monkey family came around for a visit .. "They all were very affectionate to each other, even the parents are constantly caressing. A nice moment to observe the animals in freedom and not behind bars." .. They are so similar in our behavior and she excelently shows this to us in 13 great and super cute pictures! .. Thank you sooo much for this wonderful documentation of the monkey family ^^

This weeks feature is about @yogajill. Also wintery weather sure lessens the quantity of steps outside, she took the chance to enjoy the horror frost that leaves the landscape look so magical ^^
