I glance out of my kitchen window while I’m making coffee in the morning. There is yet more snow falling, covering yesterday’s shoveled sidewalks and creating a fresh white layer over the already dirty slush from earlier in the week. The month of March has begun and in my head appears the proverb: In like a Lion, out like a Lamb.
As always, I enjoy winter but tend to tire of it quickly. Even Mikey, who loves to play in the snow, has been saying things like, “Oh no, not snow again! I want it to melt so I can ride my bike!” March will hopefully bring us slightly warmer weather, new plant growth and different things to photograph.
However I must say, it has been wonderful sharing winter with you during the Winter 2013 Nurture Photography Challenge. I’d like to thank my tireless co-creator Kristi of Live and Love out Loud for all of her hard work during the Photo Challenge this winter. And all of our participants, your photos have been so beautiful and inspiring on these otherwise cold and dark days.
We have been posting tips, freebies and tutorials for the duration of the Winter 2013 challenge. If you have missed any or would just like to go back and take a look at either the tutorials or the entries for that week, they can be found here:
The four main sets of tips and tutorials shared each week during the challenge can also be found in our new Nurture Photography Winter 2013 eBook, download to your mobile device or computer so that you can read our tips and tutorials any time!
The Nurture Photography Winter 2013 Tips and Tutorials eBook is available in PDF format, simply click on the image above and download to your computer or handheld device via iBooks, Kindle and more.
We’re always looking for ways to reward you all for your participation and we hope that you’ll enjoy the e-book. Feel free to pin it, tweet about it, share it with a friend!
