Congratulations to Andreas Vekinis, of Athens, Greece, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is the first time Andreas has won our contest. He follows last week’s winner, Shane Iroony of Lucas, Texas.
If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Tuesday.
Now here’s more from Andreas:
Title of photo: Untitled
Equipment: Canon EOS 600D with EF-S 18-55mm, f/3.5-5.6, IS II Lens
Tell us more about your photo: I took the photo on Mount Parnitha, a mountain range located to the north just outside of Athens. It’s a heavily forested area and deer can be found in abundance in the general area. When I saw a group of them grazing on the slope just above the roadside I was inclined to take some photos of them. The mountain also hosts a military base on the top of it, so army planes roaming the sky are a common sight as well. As soon as I saw the plane slowly entering my frame, leaving this beautiful streak behind of it, I decided to include it in my shots. Thus, the image that you see above was achieved.
