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 Shiva.
Title of Photo: “American Lotus in the Spotlight”
Equipment: Nikon D7500 with the 70-300 mm lens in Aperture Priority mode at ISO 100, F8, 70mm, 1/160 sec on a tripod.
Tell us more about your photo: I went with the Hagerman photographers group at sunrise to Meadow Pond within the Hagerman Wildlife Refuge near Sherman TX to see the lotus pond. There was a sudden thunderstorm which delayed our visit. As soon as the storm started clearing away, the sun peeked through the clouds and lit up the place – it was magic.
