Win Your Favorite "More Pics Monday" Photo!








So... it's about time I held a contest, don't you think? I mean, come-on, Kenna, we want to win stuff! ;) Ok, how about an 8x10 (or 8x12 depending on which photo) of one of this week's "More Pics Monday" photos?














In honor of my beloved little sister coming to visit this week, I've decided to make her part of the happenings. Here's the deal... You get 2 chances to win. Pick your favorite 2 pictures from this week's "More Pics Monday" photos & leave a comment indicating which they are (and why would be Lovely)! Using a number system will be easiest, I think, starting with #1 at top left. The names of those who have chosen the same favorite photo as my Sister will be put into a big fuzzy winter hat! The winner will be plucked out and announced next Monday (Feb 9)!



















Good Luck!! :)

What a hard choice! Gorgeous captures! I guess if I have to pick it would be 3 and 4. The gorgeous waterfall speaks to the water spirit in me. Sometimes I thirst for "big" water being in landlocked Colorado!

I love #1& # 4

Love the water in all these photos

Kenna - you make this tough! Your images are incredible! Since I am only allowed to choose two, they are:
#8 because of the vibrant, crisp colors. It so inviting, I can imagine myself on the beach.
#10 because I am trying to learn how to photograph running water and it is very difficult ... you just make it look easy!

I can't pick a favorite, they all make me want to be right in the middle of them. You have a wonderful blog!!!

I like number 8 the best! Looks like the Big Sur coast and the ocean talks to me!

I also like #2 with the willows in front.

Beautiful photos it is really difficult to choose.

hmm....very tough choice!
i love 7 & 8, they are all gorgeous though!

Robin Road said...

Wow, Kenna. Do these places really exist? ;-)

I would have to choose photographs number 4 and 5 because they are what I would imagine heaven to be.

Thanks for sharing them with us!

Wow! Kenna - this is tough, but since I have to narrow it down to two.....my two favorites are #2, because I love the contrast between the golden color and softness of the sea oats with the rugged mountains in the background, and.......#8, again because of the color - that water is gorgeous, and because it reminds me of living in Santa Cruz! All are so lovely!

Meekiyu said...

well this is kind of unfair all the photos look wonderful but I would ahve to say the 1st one because it depicts the fantasy place me and my bf dream of where we can build that fantasy house and live our lives together.

Kenna these are abslutely breathtaking photos!!!!! What a hard choice. If I had to pick, Id say #4 & #8. They both scream serenity yet freedom to me.

PS: Thank so for being a "good sport" about being tagged! That's the first time it's ever happened to me. ;)

Beautiful images!

OK my 2 favorites are #1 - the 2nd line from the bottom, with the cliffs and blue-green water! I love it, just gorgeous! And #2, I would have to say is the last line on the left, the water from a water fall! So beautiful also!

Wow your photography is amazing, thank you for taking the time to comment on 'Rain' on my blog, I am really worried about this year. Last year we had literally 2 months of fires and smoke, and I am really concerned what will happen this year with food and fires in CA.

The other thing I read that set my head spinning ... white water rafting, my DD almost bit the bottom on the American River about 8 years ago .... very dangerous, all got thrown out of the raft and she ended up in the bottom of a hole under a waterfall ... if it wasn't for a fisherman at the side of the river who saw her helmet (yellow) go over I would now longer have her. YOU stay safe!!

All these shots are gorgeous! If I had to pick just two, I'd go with 8 & 9. :)

Jennifer Aitchison said...

These are all really really beautiful! It is not easy to pick. I will say 9 and 10 just becasue I LOVE motion photos with water over rocks. I could stare at a river or the edge of a beach for hours, and have :)
I hope you have a lovely visit with your sister.

Ok, I have a little surprise news for you folks-- the rules changed a bit, via my sister! She couldn't decide on ONE photo (indecisiveness runs in the family, I think, not sure, maybe) ;) so there will actually be TWO winners. She chose #4 & #8 -- because of the beautiful color of the water, though she said some other time she might choose differently- ha ha!
So I am putting the names of everyone who chose 4, 8, or both into a big fuzzy hat. If I happen to choose the same name twice, sorry, I've decided you don't get to win twice-- gotta give someone else a chance. ;) Will do the drawing and post winners soon! :)

By the way... :) Esther and Agnes~~
Don't worry! (It doesn't do any good)! As my Dad says, "Worry is like a rocking chair-- it gives you something to do but doesn't get you anywhere." I'm sorry to hear that rafting was such a scare for you-- GLAD to hear your daughter came out of it alive and well! And yes, I do try my best to be careful, safe, and conscientious out there! Really.

I'm no adrenaline junkie, but I do like to "get out there and do!" If I sit on the couch and watch, I wilt. ;)
