Amazing Nature Contest - December 2019 - #05 - "Nature Spirit" NEW YEAR SPECIAL

in amazingnature •  7 months ago 

Hello Nature Lovers !


I would like to cordially invite you to another great week of the Amazing Nature Contest. There were already so many excellent entries regarding how amazing nature can be in the past episodes and there is still so much more to see ^^ .. To participate in #amazingnature just create a post that shows how amazing nature is for you personally. This can be anything from a beautiful flower or animal to an astonishing sunset.

What is the Purpose of the Contest ?

I am a huge lover of nature and really enjoy to take pictures of all the lovely things that surround me every day, no matter if those are plants, animals or landscapes. I found Steemit to be a brilliant place to find and watch nature pictures from all over the world. There is such a diversity of great content out there, thanks to all of you, from different perspectives and out of various motivations. I would like to collect all those beautiful snapshots and their amazing stories in a weekly compilation so that you can all benefit from the beauty that we are facing all the time, but so often are not able to appreciate in the modern times we are living in.


Contest Rules :

As this is a proper contest be so kind and follow those simple contest rules. Otherwise, to stay fair to those who do, I have to disqualify you from the winning places !

  • Use #amazingnature as FIRST TAG and topic of the post and CLEARLY MENTION that your post is an ENTRY for this contest. This assures that this contest can grow and reach out to as many nature lovers as possible.
  • All pictures that you use in your post have to be your own. You can use the amazing nature banner if you like or create your own.
  • Clearly STATE why those pictures are representing YOUR AMAZING NATURE. This is an essential part of this contest.
  • Drop the LINK to your post IN THE COMMENTS below so all participants can find it easily and fully enjoy this weekly collection. You can add a picture if you like.
  • Please submit only one post per contest. Of course you can do more, but I will stick to one entry per Steemian.

THIS WEEK ONLY: use the event theme "NATURE SPIRIT"

Possible Topics :

As nature covers an extreme wide range there is really anything possible. Amazing Natures categories could be anything from the following topics:

  • Botany
  • Zoology
  • Geology
  • Landscapes
  • Philosophy
  • ...

Prizes to Win :

  • 1st Place : 3 SBI
  • 2nd Place : 2 SBI
  • 3rd Place : 1 SBI

I will always try my best to link and present all participants of Amazing Nature in the entries section of the announcement posts that will be published roughly one week later during the weekend. This way you will have a nice compilation of them all. As an special feature, the new title picture of the contest will be created from the entry of the contest winner. This time it is from @ireenchew.




Before I proudly present to you the winners of this years "Renewal Special" I also want to announce to you this New Years special with the topic:


As for last weeks special I would like to invite you to be creative once again !! .. I know that some of you were already awaiting this unpatiently, hehe, so I am looking forward to some amazing entries as always ;)

Here we have our entry by @ireenchew. For her "renewal" means re-birth, reborn or somewhat a new start. So she choose this nice picture, acommpanied by these beautiful thoughts:

How beautiful these hibiscus are How it blooms when it dries up, it's gone And then, over time, a new hibiscus blooms again A new re-birth, over and over again

Thank you for that amazing entry that so greatly represents the renewal topic in such an encouraging way. ^^



This post here about mushrooms was submitted for us by @wongbraling. Mushrooms are really fascinating beings. "One form of life transformation, an interesting cycle, the fungus that grows and lives on dead wooden sticks. Very exotic. Some mushrooms, growing together with trees, form fruit bodies that have healing properties. Of this, traditional healers make medicines." Thank you for that great entry about our little natural and super effectiv decomposers of mother natures creation ^^



@engrsayful shows us that nature and renewal can be discovered everywhere around us. He got up early on a cold winter morning to get to view this sunrise, indicating the renewal of each new day. It s a raising gift for all poor people who are struggling with cold throughout the whole night. This sun is not only renewal of new day but also new hope for those peoples. Thank you for getting up for in a cold winter morning to capture this nice natural view of renewal of new hope ^^


















I thank all of you who participated in this week and hope that you enjoyed the Amazing Nature Contest. I am also looking forward to more excellent content to come and the start of a nice new Nature community. Of course the format is open for all kind of critics that can increase the quality of the contest and I am always happy about anyone who wants to join us on this little adventure.
