Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt

It's that time again, so here's the list for the Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt (WPSH). The WPSH runs from December 1st 2022 to 31st March 2023; all photos must be your own work and must be taken between those dates, please.

There is a list of 20 prompts to find photos for, but up to three of these can be substituted using the alternative prompts at the end of the list if necessary. I've tried to think of prompts that can be found both indoors and outdoors, depending on local Covid restrictions but will add additional alternatives if it proves necessary.

Everyone is welcome to join in and remember, the most important part of the hunt is to have fun!

1. Seeing faces everywhere

2. An essential item 

3. Shadows

4. Sporting Life

5. A peek inside

6. A religious item or building

7. Water

8. Upside down

9. Wildlife

10. Winter berries

11. Hand or foot

  1. Oh, wow! It IS that time again, isn't it? That is a great list of prompts! Thank you!

    1. I hadn't connected the date with the WPSH in my mind so was surprised when the reminder came up on my phone. Luckily I'd created the list back in the summer otherwise I'd be panicking!

      Hope you have fun hunting for the photo. xx

  2. Another great list Eileen. This year I am going to I try my best to complete the challenge.

    1. Thanks Carole. Is there any way we can see your photos? I don't think you have your own blog but I'm happy to post photos for you if you are interested.

  3. It's a good list! Quite a few on here which spark a flicker of inspiration in me. I will keep the prompts in mind and may spontaneously start taking some pics. If so, I will get Laurie involved too ... she needs more projects(!) Hahaha! Either way, I'm sure to enjoy seeing what everyone else comes up with.

    1. Thanks Lady E. I hope you do feel able to join in this year. Why not post all the photos you like and not worry about making a final selection for each prompt? Not everyone does a final selection post now and it will keep you out of mischief! Yes please, get Laurie involved.
