Fixed Lens Photo Challenge #2: Subject: Weather

Winter is well established in the UK so it is time to have a compatible thread. You don't have to enter a wintery photo, weather from any season is acceptable

Remember, if you post a photo, you may be the winner. Be prepared to host and judge a new challenge.

To submit, click the button labelled "POST REPLY" and put your photo title in the first line of the post, above your photo. Your camera brand and model must appear in the post. Include additional EXIF data, if you like.

Enter just one photo.

Post until Monday noon GMT, December 11th, 2023..

Camera: Any fixed-lens camera, all brands and models. Cell phones are also included. No DSLRs!
Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible except photos that have won other POTN competitions.
Size: Photo must be no less than 800 pixels and no more than 1600 pixels on the longest side, with no borders.
Post-processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it fits the theme.
Photo display: Photos must appear in this thread to be eligible.
Title your photo.
No commenting and no likes until the challenge has ended.
People may also post photos after the winners are announced.

Voting: Once the challenge is closed on Monday noon anyone may cast their votes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. People who didn't enter a photograph are also allowed to vote. 1st Place = 3 points, 2nd Place = 2 points, and 3rd Place = 1 point.
Note: The host of the challenge may also enter a photo and is encouraged to do so. Should the host win, the runner up will host the next challenge, so as to avoid the same person hosting in two consecutive weeks.

1. The challenge host is the winner of the last challenge.
2. Once your win is announced, copy the sticky and start a thread in the Competitions forum with this title: Fixed-Lens Challenge #XXX: Subject
4. Soon after noon GMT on the next Tuesday, post the sum of the votes for first, second, and third place. No ties, please.
5. If the winner can't be contacted and doesn't respond by Wednesday noon GMT, the second-place winner will host the challenge. If both are unavailable, the third-place winner will host.

Schedule: One challenge every week, on the following schedule:
1. New Topic: As soon as possible after winning.
2. Posting Starts: Right after topic is announced.
3. Posting Stops: Monday noon GMT.

I have been asked to continue with POTN's Fixed Lens Photo Challenge #265 . Subject TBN ; on FOP .

If all are happy with that, I'll post a challenge tomorrow.
Per agreement with NixEre he chose the next topic as Out With the Old for the next Fix Lens challenge and I post and tally it.
This thread will carry over to the Fixed Lens Photo Challenge #265 found here.
Hope this all meets with the Mods approval.
