How are you going to validate the 5-mile radius? People could geotag their images...

With trust :-) it's just for fun.
Excellent so far, keep it up :-)

Clever and logical answer, we are here to enjoy our hobby, there is nothing to win, it would be so useless and so mean to cheat...for nothing.
Trust is precious stuff, which is getting a bit rare nowadays for a lot of reasons, so let’s grow it freely in this space! :)

It is easy for me to follow the rules for this one: a combination of living in a beautiful spot and being too lazy to go further means that a lot of my shots are less than 5 minutes from home, much less 5 miles!

We got an impressive amount of freezing rain a couple of weeks ago, and it lasted long enough to get some good shots with the sun:





And something from the summer time, from the back yard:

. . .about a 10 minute walk from my house - a beautiful misty morning;



. . . only one block from my house - moonrise with sunset over my shoulder;



. . . and, finally, my backyard.

My first image is from my front yard. This patch of poppies is only about 4 feet square, but getting the right angle and cropping make it look big.



My second picture is from across the street at the rail road tracks.



My third picture is from my back yard. It is a winter shot of my fountain/fish tank.




Thanks for looking.

There is not much exciting within 5 miles of my home, but I liked the challenge this presented me.
