Amazing Nature Contest - October 2019 - #02

in amazingnature •  3 years ago 

Hello Nature Lovers !

20191013_150153.jpg

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.

Possible Topics :

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

  • Botany
  • Zoology
  • Geology
  • Landscapes

Prizes to Win :

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

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

THIS WEEKS WINNERS



Beauty is in the eyes of beholder. This is the main thesis of this amazing post by @mysteriousroad. Nature teaches us many lessons , like keep patience, always spread joy, happiness and positivity, but the most amazing thing is, that no matter what kind, all all are so beautiful in their own way. There is no parameters to measure the beauty as everything totally depends on our perspective. This is also so true for us humans, which are so wrongly obsessed with fair skin color, how thin we are, which creams we use and so on. This leads to so much discrimination in this world which also impacts our children hearts and can result in feeling of inferiority, growing up with low self-esteem , and can lead to be under-confident and timid. This is only a small part of what this excellent post is about and you should definitly read it. I really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for participating with this outstanding philosophical post !

Here we have some pictures from Alabat Island, a place blessed by amazing nature and substantial rice fields and the hometown of @travelsbyblue which he visited again after not seeing it for years. It is a small paradise near the pacific ocean and a peaceful place with very very low crime rate, where people are kind and know each other, which is rich in natural resources and unpolluted ocean.
For him it is so amazing to see the greens, white and blue skies just along the side of the street, watching these farmers harvesting the fruit of their labor in the midst of the afternoon without any sign of tiredness.

Here we have another post by our rose loving @nelinoeva. She shows us some pictures of their glorious bloom and buds about to blossom. Those may be the last petals before they fall and their beauty starts to fade. But new buds will reappear one day to show its beauty to the world in this beautiful circle of life. The life of roses may be short, but it is worth watching them and admire the graceful flower.
