I've seen this done on lots of Flickr groups, but I thought it might be fun to have our own UM version since we have many talented shutterbugs in our midst. The idea is that someone posts a theme or topic and we all post our photographic interpretations of that theme.  I'll start off.

The theme is Cold.  :santa:

So post away and lets see if we can get some discussion going on the photos people post.  I know as a photographer I always love feedback, whether it be critical or complimentary - I love it all.

Very nice.  I love how the barbed wire defines the otherwise nearly uniform whiteness.  Excellent capture, Professor T!  :tu:  Feel free to choose a new theme or let this one ride for awhile.  Whatever you like.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

I love the different gradations of grey in the clouds and background hills.   I like this shot.

Bleak and grey works perfectly here. It adds to the simplicity nicely.

Here's mine taken this afternoon. (Nice thread btw!)
