Last Week's Winners

It's time to give tribute to the terrific trifecta of talent that tried out for this week's trial!

First Prize

First place and 3 SBI shares goes to @vestlife for an awesome picture, The Freedom of Flight. In it, a vulture is soaring through the fog in a beautiful valley with a mountain as its backdrop. Much like the author, I have struggled to learn how to get nice shots of birds, but I still haven't taken a picture of one that I'm proud of. I guess that is why this particular image impressed me so much. I also thought it was pretty cool that, even though this bird is soaring far, far above the ground, the picture is taken from even higher above. It kind of makes one wonder, "what in the world were you doing up there?!" Very nicely done!!

Second Prize

This week's second place prize of 2 SBI shares goes to @fitinfunfood for their up-close photo of orange slices. The photo is accompanied by a wonderful article about the importance of having fruit in your diet entitled F Is For Fruit. Once again, they provided a plethora of photos depicting all kinds of fruit from all around the world! From grapes in California that are only available for 2 weeks out of the year to the dreaded Durian fruit being prepared for market in Bangkok, you are sure to find some fruit that interests you in this article. In addition, you will will find charts providing the health benefits of various fruits, tips on how to avoid pesticides when buying fruits and how to clean your fruit before eating, and some tasty sounding ideas on how to prepare your fruit. If you're looking to replace some unhealthy calories in your diet with better options, you will definitely want to check this one out!

Third Prize

This weeks third prize of 1 SBI share goes to @izaid for a beautiful upcycling project, a {Flower vase made from bottles](https://steemit.com/art/@izaid/flower-vase-made-from-bottles-c21d871f2c272). All of the flowers and the vase in the image are made from plastic bottles that were shaped and melted together using a candle flame or lighter. I have to say: these plastic bottles look WAAAY more attractive than the ones I see lining the roads or floating in our lakes and streams! If only more of us would seek to find better uses for our trash.



Proof Of Funds Transfer

I am excited to see this contest beginning to grow! I get to give out all three prizes, this week!

Hey @sustainablyyours,

Thank you again for hosting this contest and also for your appreciation of my photo :)

Much like the author, I have struggled to learn how to get nice shots of birds, but I still haven't taken a picture of one that I'm proud of.

I did not expect, that you could relate to the struggles of getting a good shot of those fast moving animals.
I feel you!

I'm already thinking of what to shoot for the letter 'G'.
So, see you soon here in the comments ;)

Here I am with my entry. I resteemed earlier in the week. I do not know what is up with people. I will promote more this coming week. Thank you so much for the contest @sustainablyyours.

Sorry for the late entry, I'm not a native english speaker and it was difficult for me to find something with the letter 'G'...
Just yesterday I found something while visiting a small spanish village and I had to edit the photos and write the post.

Anyway, here is my entry:

G obviously stands for gorge xD

I hope its ok that I have included more than one photo.
I think it gives the reader a better feeling how the place looks like.

Greetings,
Constantin
