Welcome to our latest Windows Central Photo Contest. This week's competition focuses on the weather! Whether it's a European forest doused in rainfall or a sun-bleached Australian landscape, we want to see your weather-themed snaps for a chance to win a Pickit Premium Subscription and a Lumia Treasury Tag!

The pictures must be taken on a Windows Phone, and follow the weather theme. It can be pictures of fluffy clouds, macro shots of rain drenched leaves, or fork lightning! Be as creative as possible and you could find yourself victorious.



Here are the rules for this week's contest:

- You must use a Windows Phone to take your picture.
- You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any photo editing software or apps you might have used. Altering your pictures is fine, be creative!
- Please add a paragraph describing your photograph, we want to know how your picture came to be! If you have an Instagram feed or any other photography portfolio profile, feel free to link those for the community as well.
- You must have used a valid email address to register here at Windows Central so that we can contact the winner.
- We'll only accept ONE entry per person.
- You must upload your picture to the contest forum thread here.

I would have been the first one if Edge and Chrome would allow me to upload a picture heh. It still doesn't work, so i have to do it another way :cool:

This photo was taken with my Lumia 930, running win 10 insider preview. It is a rich capture, but not otherwise edited.

Location: Tarvisio ski resort, Italy, early morning.

Shot on Lumia 950; Location: Nautelankoski rapids (Aura River) near Turku, Finland
Settings: Auto
Minor editing with Adobe Photoshop Express (I tried to upload the original, which is similar, but I think the file was too big)

It was a very cold day (almost -20 degrees C if I remember correctly), hence the rapids were partially frozen.
But some water was still flowing, which made for an interesting combination of ice, snow and running water.
Luckily I managed to press the camera shutter with my gloves on, so my fingers didn't freeze.

Winter sunrise in Sydney, Australia.

Taken in July 2015 on my Lumia 930 while out for my morning run. No editing - it was a remarkable sight!

Taken with a Lumia 640 XL on a pretty slow day at home. No adjustments made on the photo because I like how the sky reflected my mood that day—calm, easy, uncluttered.

Taken with my Lumia 640.
Just used auto enhance from creative studio.

There's nothing more beautiful than the golden sun's rays piercing through the clouds at dawn

Out for a walk on a morning last Fall and took this with my $59.00 Lumia 640. Slightly added contrast and a bit of saturation in Pixlr Express. I use a vertical slice of this as the lock screen on my 640.

Shot with Lumia 635. Not edited. Taken in Singapore Jan 1st super early in the morning from my very 1st run of the year. Sky clearing up after the rain. The hydro-dam reflecting off the water.
