The Backyard Critters photo contest on Lenzr is fast becoming a huge archive of homemade Canadian wildlife pictures.Already there are deer swimming in lakes, and butterflies and all manner of birds and chipmunks and rodents that are slightly out of focus and make me wonder if in fact some young person did indeed snap and submit the image.

Industrial, flat roof, repair company, Toronto, View From The Roof contest plate on Lenzr, The View From The Roof photo contest on Lenzr hopes to collect and archive many different landscapes from all across Canada. Most will be from a vantage point about thirty feet or so above ground. Some folks who live in apartment buildings in big cities will have a much higher view from the roof.

The Apple iPad prize was provided by a flat roof repair service that puts new white ToughRoof systems to work in the greater Toronto Area.  Dan Sheridan is a white roof  specialist and an expert at remodeling roofs into the perfect (all white = reflective) terrain for increased solar panel production.

The Morning Sunshine photo contest is a little tricky only because it requires getting up really early and taking pictures in the special light that first burns off the morning mist. Its a magic hour thing.

Special thanks to Michael Reichmann, the Ontario photographer who donated this Sunrise_Barn photo from his Ontario photography gallery .  The contest sponsor is a portable solar power generator (PSG’s) design and manufacturing firm in southern Ontario.

This third iPad prize to be dispensed was purchased by a solar powered deck building company. The sponsors of this challenge use green building programs and clean energy to (quietly) cut lumber and make your backyard paradise. Submit pics of People Building Things and tell us the story behind each picture.
