I'll (cocomac) be running the photo contest this month (November).

The topic is "On the trail", meaning photos taken on a trail or in a forest of some type. Plants, animals, perhaps a campsite, stunning views and similar are all fair game.

Remember that if your photo includes people (other than you), you need to get permission prior to posting the photo. Alternatively, you can make them unrecognizable.

The contest will end at the end of November (UTC time). The following rules apply (credit to Willeke, but slightly modified):

  • Up to three photos per answer. Photos in the same answer should be of the same trail or forest area, may be a different part of it.
  • You can make up to three posts (attempts).
  • Do not delete posts if you don't get votes: you posted it, stand by it. (You have two more attempts if your first one doesn't work out.)
  • All submissions should have a line with when and where the photo(s) was/were taken, along with a description of the subject.
  • The photo has to be taken by the person who posted it, or by a travel partner (needs to be named).
  • Keep it nice, CoC-compliant, non-offensive, and non-NSFW.
  • If you have people recognizable in the photo you have to have their permission to post the photo, or make them unrecognizable.
  • If you disagree with a photo, please consider leaving a comment on it or bringing it up in chat. For the purposes of judging, only upvotes will be considered; downvotes will not affect the score of the photo.
  • The photo may have been taken any time.
  • If there is no tie for the highest number of upvotes at the end of the month, the winner will be announced then; if there is, the voting period may extend beyond the month.
  • If you'd like to suggest a theme for a future photo competition, please add it to the list of possible photo competition topics. Also, you can join us in chat to help us make the decision on which topic to choose.

The Dechmont Woods, about 5 miles north of where I live, in March 2021 - a time when we explored every walkable trail in our county, I think...

    I especially like the middle picture. In fact, I think this'd be a stronger entry with just the middle picture.

‘On the end of the trail’ is perhaps a bit too far fetched, but I'll give it a go nevertheless.

Last night I slept in the area called Tràng An, UNESCO site in the province of Ninh Bình in northern Vietnam. When I left the homestay on my scooter some two hours ago I thought to do the longer route to enjoy the landscape. This was my reward!
