By Bharath Ramesh
We are back with the February edition of the Indiahikes Photo Contest, which is open to all. You're welcome to participate no matter which part of the country you are in (even overseas). You're welcome to share pictures from your Indiahikes treks or treks you have done on your own.
Theme: Colours On A Trek
We are approaching the tail end of winter. And a seasonal transition is in the offing. In a month, the season will start transitioning to a colourful spring.
During the transition, you’ll see a charming mix of snow and greenery. Tiny flowers begin to bloom. The forest starts coming to life with birds and animals coming out of their winter slumber. We slowly witness nature starting to change its colours.
For the February 2023 Photo Contest, we want to put the spotlight on this transition.
Show us the most colourful side of the mountains you have seen. It can be photos of flowers, mountains, green meadows, forests, flowers, bird life, animals, or a mix of all of these elements
Note: It’s still a photo contest, so the photo needs to be technically sound and well-framed. (No selfies)
