Congrats to the winners!!

Has for January's theme, us admins have decided to stop the monthly themes due to a small number of submissions each month. Instead, each of us are going to choose a photo that we loved and pop it into the featured folder.
We hope you've all have an amazing new year, and are excited to see what amazing photos you share with us :)
