Brand New Heavies

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 26 June 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This year’s heavy harvest on show at the Collector Village Pumpkin Festival.

The display takes place in a marquee as some of the pumpkins are now too big to fit through the door of the local hall.

The fierce rivalry of two local growers has escalated the battle of the giant pumpkins. However, this year produced a shock winner from outside the village.

Happy Silly Tuesday!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A cute capture with some amazingly huge members! Somehow I find the guy with his iPhone amusing. It must be his attire and tattoo.....just doesn't seem to fit the image to be "hip" enough. :-)

Irene from San Francisco, United States

Beautiful picture of the pumpkins. There is a place south of San Francisco where pumpkins are grown and there is a contest who can get the larger pumpkin. There are fields of them.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

There is a town north of Edmonton that has an annual pumpking weigh off. Last year's winner was an impressive 543.9 kilos. Nicely captured Stephen! ;-)
