I Love Winter!
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

While most abhor winter and the cold that accompanies it, I've always been kind of a "nut" about it. I love the way the snow transforms a landscape with the curves of drifting snow, the way snow sparkles in the sun and allows blue shadows that accentuate and contrast light. I love the quiet in a drifted woods, the softly falling flakes, and the squeak of steps through the depths.
How well I remember the anticipation of "no school" and the fun I had sledding, making snowmen and snow forts, snowball fights, etc..
Both as a child and as an adult, I loved skiing, skating, tobogganing and of course, sleigh rides. Winter brings the scent of balsam and evergreens, the aroma of hot chocolate, and of course the excitement of Santa's visit. And, when Santa had gone, the new sleds and skates were ready for fun.
In other words, I just love winter!
