First of all I'd like to thank everyone that has taken part in this challenge, whether you've submitted photos, made comments on photos that have been submitted by others, or both. I have really enjoyed seeing all the photos and fellowship in the challenge threads. I expected no less though, considering how this forum has been since I joined it. The folks here are definitely a cut above what I see on most other photography forums on the internet and I'm thankful to have found this forum and all of you. Even though I'll probably never meet most of you in person, I consider everyone here a "friend". :cheers:

With that said, week 12 was a blast! We had a lot of awesome photos posted. I honestly thought that there was more participation than any other week we've had so far, but going back and doing the numbers it turns out that week 12 is tied with weeks 1 and 4 with 20 photos in each. The next closest week was #5 with 16 entries. The thread with the lowest number of entries was #6, with 10 photos being submitted. All the others fall somewhere in between.

So far we have submitted a total of 179 photos taken specifically for this challenge. That means that the whole purpose of this challenge, which is getting us out and shooting more, has done just that. It has prompted and motivated us to shoot, share and enjoy 179 photographs that otherwise wouldn't have been taken. I think that's awesome! :cool:

Now, let's keep it going and get on with Week 13. This week's theme was suggested by Sarah, aka *MrsUSbowhunter*. Thanks for the suggestion, Sarah. I think it's a good one. Can't wait to see the photos for this one!!! :cool:

The theme for this week is...

SUNRISE/SUNSET

I started to split them up and use them for two different weeks but thought maybe some people's work and life schedules might allow them to shoot one but not the other and I didn't want to leave anyone out. So, I decided to use them both in a single week.

And since I'm such a sucker for sky shots I also decided to throw a wild card for this week and allow one photo of each theme title if anyone wishes to shoot both. So, instead of having to choose one or the other, you can submit one sunset photo and one sunrise photo if you wish, for a total of two shots for this week's thread. Please stick to those guidelines though. If you only shoot one of the theme titles, please submit only one photo to the thread. Otherwise all the rules still apply.

Now, let's get out and shoot! Well, not right now as it's already dark... but you know what I mean. :D

I've been trying to hold out because of our lack of clouds this week. There's a cool old tree that is surrounded so it's hard to get a shot on. I had to dance through the weeds with a couple of snakes and fire ants but here it is!

We appear to be going for quality rather than quantity this week. :D I figured we'd see some early action in this one. Now that I think about it though, the time frame for getting shots for this theme is very narrow. You're looking at an hour or so in the morning and an hour or so in the evening each day. That really puts the pressure on considering we've been having all day every day to work around schedules and life...

I hope to get mine tomorrow evening. I'm more of a sunset man than a sunrise man. I don't do early very well... and I get up at 0430 hours every work day so it's hard to drag my butt out anywhere around day break when I'm off... so my time this week is pretty much limited to an hour or so in the evening around "life". ::ke:
