Our popular Photo of the Month contest is now open for May. While the contest is mainly for fun and inspiration, there is a prize for the chosen winner!
This month our theme is Indian hill stations!
Our destination of the month for May is Mount Abu, the only hill station in the desert state of Rajasthan. A hill station is a high-altitude town, perfect as a place of refuge from the summer heat. Wikipedia have a useful list of hill stations in India.
Indian hill stations are a photographer’s paradise, with snowy peaks, green valleys, lush plantations, thundering waterfalls and peaceful lakes offering plenty of postcard perfect shots.
Make sure you caption your photo to let us know where in India it was taken!
You can enter in four ways
Supply your image and a brief description of where the photo was taken in one of the following ways:
