Picture This

Our next ‘Picture This’: The Colors of Nature

    Whatever the season, brilliant color abounds in nature. For our next Picture This reader photo feature, we want your photos of eye-popping color in nature, whether from wildflowers, autumn leaves, sunsets, butterfly wings or other things.
    Photos selected for publication will appear in the January 2013 issue of Today in Mississippi.
    Submissions must be postmarked or emailed to us by Nov. 30, 2012.
    Photographers whose work is selected for publication will be entered in a drawing for a $200 cash prize, to be awarded in December 2013.

• Photos must be the original work of an amateur photographer (of any age).
• Photos must be in sharp focus.
• Prints and digital files are eligible.
• Digital photos should be high-resolution JPG files (use the “high quality” setting on your digital camera). Please do not use photo-editing software to adjust colors or tones. (We prefer to do it ourselves, if necessary, according to our printer’s standards.)
• Please do not send a photo with a date on the image.
• Photos must be accompanied by identifying information, including photographer’s name, address, phone and electric power association (if applicable). Include the name(s) of any recognizable people in the picture.
• Prints will be returned if accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. We cannot, however, guarantee their safe return through the mail, so please do not send irreplaceable photos.
