Point and Shoot is a monthly photo challenge where readers show off their photography skills.

January’s submissions fall under the theme of “New Beginnings.”

Most of the submissions either focused on nature's new beginnings - sunrises, hatchlings and flowers in bloom - or beginnings of a more personal sort, like engagements and additions to the family.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated.

Ready to submit your photo for the next challenge? The theme for February is "Loving Life." But you don’t have to be literal. As always, we encourage you to think outside the box. Photos are due the last Monday of the month, and will be printed the following month.
