Photo Challenge #4 – Water

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Water – the most essential element to life. It can be found below the driest of deserts and even in the cold, dark reaches of space, frozen as ice on planets, comets, and asteroids. It’s in the air we breathe, the seas we swim in, the rainbows we marvel at, and even in our own bodies which are made of 60% water. Water covers 71% of the Earth’s surface and is necessary for all forms of life to exist, but despite the water that is seemingly everywhere, one billion people on our planet still lack access to safe, fresh drinking water and more than three million people die each year from water related diseases, most of them in the developing world.

In this week’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge, we’re challenging bloggers to photograph what they feel best represents water! On Wednesday, November 7th (at 2pm EST, so be sure to submit your entries before that time!) we’ll choose 1 judge’s choice winner, 5 runner ups, and 1 audience choice winner & share their entries here on! Send your friends to this page to leave a comment-vote for your entry to win the audience choice award!

      Excellent photos. You have captured water in all of its forms, solid, gas and liquid – and have shown how nature provides this most valuable resource in each of those forms. Thanks for sharing.
