A Giveaway!

After taking a year off, The Corolla Wild Horse Fund is once again having a photo contest for next year’s calendar. Rather than waiting until later in the year as they have done in the past, entries must be in by the end of this month, and they’re hoping the calendars will be available for the busy 2019 summer tourist season.

I have been thrilled to have my photos selected for previous calendars, so I will, once again, be entering pictures in the contest. Each entry may contain up to three photos, so I’m sharing with you the three that I’ve chosen:

Picture number 1:

Picture number 2:

And picture 3:

So, to enter the giveaway, leave a comment HERE ON THE BLOG POST, saying which photo you think may possibly be selected for the calendar.

If I’m fortunate enough to have any of these photos chosen, I will draw a name from my readers who selected that photo. That person will receive a gift package, to include the 2020 CWHF calendar. If none of my photos are chosen, a reader who commented will be randomly chosen as the giveaway winner.

Be sure to leave a comment with your selection HERE on the blog. (Your email will not be visible to anyone but me.) The winner will be chosen from the comments left here on the blog post.

Giveaway!

Now that I have your attention…..

If you were following my blog last summer, you may recall that, for the first time, I entered the Corolla Wild Horse Fund Calendar Photo Contest. I was over-the-moon-thrilled that one of my photos was chosen to be included in the 2015 calendar.

The deadline to enter the contest for the 2016 calendar is August 31, so this weekend, I sent in my entries for this year. And, once again, I’m having a little blog giveaway relating to the Corolla Wild Horses. Today,  I’m going to share with you the three photos I submitted, and ask you to comment on which one you think MIGHT be selected by the judges.

I’m well aware that last year may have just been “beginner’s luck” and that I may not be so fortunate in this contest. But, here are my three pictures:

This one is “Horse and Surf”. It was taken very early one Sunday morning when Motor Man and I were among very few humans on the beach. It was such a peaceful time; my favorite time of day to see the horses.

 Next, “2 Stallions”. This was also taken early one morning.

And last, but not least, this one is “Horses in Grass”.  All the Corolla horses are beautiful, but the ones with the “blonde” manes always remind me of surfer boys.

Please leave a comment on this post, saying which photo you think MIGHT stand a chance. Once the judge’s choices are announced, IF one of my photos is selected, I’ll choose a winner from the readers who chose that picture. If none of my pictures makes it into the 2016 calendar, I’ll just choose a winner at random.

Part of the prize package will be the 2015 Corolla Wild Horse Calendar, and I’ll add in some other goodies.

Disclaimer: the photos are given a random code when received for judging, and the judges have no information about the photographer. The judges for this contest were listed on the entry form, and I don’t know either of them, and doubt seriously if they’ve ever heard of me or this blog.

Scattered Thoughts

It’s Monday.

We had a wedding here on Saturday. The weather was perfect. The ceremony was lovely. The bride was radiant. (I forgot to ask permission to post pictures, so until then, I’ll share this photo of the other bride and groom who put in an appearance that day, just in time for the reception.)

Back in May, I wrote about the photo contest for the 2015 Corolla Wild Horse Fund calendar. I asked my readers to leave a comment, choosing from the photos I submitted which one they thought might be selected for the calendar. I’m pleased to announce that the judges did deem one of my photos calendar-worthy! Watch for an announcement soon, letting you know which photo was chosen and the winner of MY contest.

This Friday will be the third anniversary of These Days Of Mine (my blogaversary, as they say). Perhaps we’ll have a little celebration.

My posts may be sporadic this week, so don’t be alarmed if I miss a day or two. I’ll be back soon.

Happy Monday.
