October 2016 Image of the Month Contest

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

Hello All,


As winter is arriving so are the prizes; from October until the end of the season we will have monthly prizes for our winner(s). This month we have two prizes for our winner! First is a two nights stay at Vail's only botique hostel (they've got craft beer!) the Vail Bunkhouse thanks to @Townicus. The second prize for our winner is a copy of The Ski Journal signed by Nick McNutt; this years first edition details the founding of the legendary Teton Gravity Research media productions and more. Thanks to @Wibby for that. 


Vail Bunkhouse







  1. The image must be your own and taken during the month of October 2016. 
  2. Please submit one image per post; you can submit up to three images/posts per month. 
  3. Please put a brief description of the image (where, what, when, or any other interesting details). 
  4. Voters can vote for as many images as they like. 
  5. Images do not need to be SOTC (straight out of the camera), standard editing and even HDR shots are welcome and encouraged. However please do not submit composite shots** in the contest thread as the idea is the best image you can capture rather than the best picture that you can create in Photoshop. 


Also not a rule, but an explanation. Please vote for the images you like! At the bottom of the post there is a little thumbs up button, please click it! 


**composite shots meaning using two unrelated and completely different shots to make one image, ie putting the sky from one shot with the foreground of a shot from a different location.

I'll start.  We're on vacation and this was taken a few days ago in Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.  It is a 240' waterfall in a desert canyon on Lower Calf Creek.  Great hike in and a nice, cool spray at the end.  More pics to come.

This picture is not enlarged. Those wires were all there was between him and our car. Not a great picture but an interesting subject

Ancient Puebloan structure in Natural Bridges National Monument.  If you've never been to the four corners area, this stuff is everywhere.  This one is unique in it's style of doors (rounded) and that the roof of the structure on the left (purportedly a kiva, but it's not round, so I wonder...) is mostly intact after 700 years.  None of this is reconstructed.

Had to Jump off the bike for this one yesterday. 

At that time of day the sun reflecting off the leaves made it feel as if you were riding through a tunnel of gold...
