Ride of the month Jan '13 submission time

Ride of the month submission time!
Per the new format change announcement:
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=87432

I'm looking for the best picture for January's ROTM!
This month's theme is: SNOW!!!!
I borrowed some random picture off the web to illustrate the theme

But, don't hold back - be creative, take a great picture that has snow in it somehow and post it up to enter! I'll close the submission thread on Saturday January 20th and set up the voting. Sorry, but one entrant per person, please.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
We’re looking for the best member’s pictures for that month. The winning picture will have the place of honor on the JKOwners Facebook page. We’ve eliminated the multiple classes. There is only one. We don’t care what’s on the Jeep (or how much $ they’ve spent or sweat they’ve put into it).
The criteria will be simple. Each month we’ll have a theme unannounced until entry time. Entrants will post up their submitted picture for ROTM. We anticipate quite a few submissions each month. We’ll run an initial vote to narrow the field a bit kind of like a semifinals. Highest vote counts continue on to the finals. Finals would consist of 5-10 entrants max on a vote and we’ll see which one wins (10 is option limit on poll so if the contestant numbers are still high we'll go with 10).


It would be helpful to the entrant by having a little caption of where the shot was taken. Another thing to consider would be to make it a higher quality picture (cell phone pics suck).

What are you voting on? The overall picture and how well it relates to the theme of the month, picture quality, uniqueness of the shot, how well the jeep is framed in the foreground or beauty of the background. Which of the pictures posted by the entrants just 'makes it for you' as the symbol of our group on the Facebook home page. There are a lot of factors but we wanted to allow you guys to determine the best picture of the month.

I really don't want to make a huge list of rules that sort this out, but as they are generated, I'll update this post with whatever rules need to be imposed.
Rules:
1. Picture must be of the entrant's jeep.
2. Picture must comply with the theme of the month. Those that don't comply will be disqualified.
3. Winners in the calendar year are disqualified from entering again in the same calendar year. We'd like to spread the wins out, which I'm sure you'll understand.

I hope you guys have a lot of fun with this new format.
Cheers.

Edit. I hope no one minds, but I changed my submission picture. If it's an issue, I'll put the old one back.

From today. I had to go up to one of our microwave sites for work. I knew the road wouldn't have been plowed yet, and took my jeep instead of the company truck (which probably wouldn't have made it up without chains).

I'll play



This photo was taken for a test day at Reiter Foothills ORV park about an hour outside of Seattle. The photo was actually taken by a reporter for one of the local papers. It was good to see some positive media coverage for 4x4s.

I would pitch in for a cooler full of shaved ice to dump on your Jeep up at Peacock. Actually, it might be easier to do that at K-point (we could grab some ice in Haleiwa).
