One Shot Category: Hot, Cold

Climate and temperature are very much in focus as the debate about global warming rumbles on. Temperature at its extremes challenges us as human beings and as photographers but can make for the most stunning images. Capture an image which conveys heat or the chill, the hot or the cold.

You can enter B&W or colour images.

What subjects can you include?

Anything that shows extremes of heat or cold. It might be a wild landscape, or a hot or extremely cold environment in which people are living or working - there are lots of possibilities, but we want to feel that temperature!
