Hello Nature Lovers !

20191020_112354.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.
  • All pictures that you use in your post have to be your own. You can use the amazing nature banner if you like or create your own.
  • 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.

Possible Topics :

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

  • Botany
  • Zoology
  • Geology
  • Landscapes

Prizes to Win :

  • 1st Place : 3 SBI
  • 2nd Place : 2 SBI
  • 3rd Place : 1 SBI

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

THIS WEEKS WINNERS



Here we have some beautiful pictures of dandelions by @nelinoeva covered by miniature droplets after a foggy day. While dandelions are already such beautiful flowers, they still loose none of their beauty after most of their white parachutes are lost, but reveal just a different kind of beauty when covered with droplets. Nature can create masterpiece of anything which can be found in every little detail. Simple things could look complex and even striped by the colours still be attractive. Thank you for that excellent macro photography and reminding us that we can find the beauty of nature just everywhere and in every way.

This amazing picture of a large spiders web was submitted by @sallybeth23. Spiderwebs are incredible geometric constructs which feature an unique design. This one here with its tantalizing colours that glint off the silky threads is her stunning example of just how amazing nature is.

Here we have this nice picture of a tree trunk from @atomcollector for us. It is a great picture which leaves you staring on it seeing faces, hands, ariel mountain ranges and other optical illusions. This is an great example of how amazing nature can be by providing such intricate patterns ! Here we can see how diverse and individual nature can be for all of us.
