Round Robin Challenge: Nature (for 3/21/07)

This challenge is now closed! Thanks for playing!
Hi, Robins! The time has come to announce our newest Challenge, courtesy of our friend Gina, of Gina's Space. I'll let her introduce it:
My first love in photography has always been nature. I know this topic is rather broad....but I would like for the Robins to show us how they feel about nature....landscapes, sunsets/sunrises, wildlife....
There you have it, folks! We've had a few very specific challenges lately, so now it's time for a wide open one. The topic is Nature! What aspect of nature engages your senses, excites you or relaxes you, refreshes your spirit, and, most of all, inspires you to reach for the camera? Are you hung up on sunsets? Have you a passion for butterflies? Do you climb every mountain, or walk along the beach? Do you dare to capture a deer, a duckbill or a dragonfly in your camera lens? Are you in awe of the starkness of a late season ice storm, or cheered by robins and crocuses? Whatever it is, go out into the world and find it, take your best shots, and get ready to post them right after spring begins (or fall, if you're in the Southern Hemisphere), on Wednesday, March 21, 2007, any time between midnight and midnight. As always, you can post up to six days later if you need to, but you will probably get more visitors if you post your entry on the 21st.

  • Please don't post your entry before March 21st. (It's not fair to others, and may not be seen)
  • Please do RSVP in a comment to this announcement entry. (See the example below.)
  • Please include a link to this blog, or your fellow Robins, or both, in your entry.
Your RSVP comment should include your first name, blog name, and URL, like this:

Naturally I'll play! Ursula say so!

Got it? Good! Now go be photographers! And don't forget to show us the wonders of nature on Wednesday, March 21st.

Karen, with Carly and Steven

P.S. Oh! I almost forgot to mention this. We've had a little trouble recently contacting some of the Robins as their turn comes up to choose a Round Robin topic. If your email address isn't readily available in your AOL journal address, on your sidebar or someplace like that, please email Karen, Steven, or Carly so we know where to contact you when the time comes. Our email addresses are as follows:

* Karen: mavarin[at]
* Carly: ondinemonet[at]
* Steven: steven.emmett[at]

We hope to hear from you soon!
