    Summer Lovin'

    The theme this time is all about summer. Anything or any activity that is the epitome of summer qualifies. So use your imagination.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a grey area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    Zz.

    Nice Deere, Scorpa. Of course, by posting that, you totally screwed up my intended post of "I'm in Alberta! What's summer?" :grumpy: :tongue:
    By the way, did that hail last Wednesday beat the snot out of your area the way it did here?

    Haha this is one of the first years we managed to get the haying done without it being rained a few times or worse. We didn't get the hail luckily, I think it stayed in your area. I saw it on the news though, it looked like it got pretty crazy out there for awhile.

    Larkspur, where was that photo taken? It's very nice!

    Glad to hear it. Gotta love this place, huh? Drought or flood. Alberta farmers have one of the riskiest jobs on the planet.

    Thanks Scorpa. That was taken in Waikoloa,on the Big Island of Hawaii.

    Haha yup you got that one right. I remember one year it was so dry there was no hay around, and then the next year it rained so much that it took forever to get all of it cut and baled....a lot of guys ended up with rotting hay.

    Hypnagogue has been to some nice places! Where is that one from?

    I used to take pictures of nice places. Now I take pictures of my kids.

    Speaking of which...

    Ditto!

    I like the pool picture posted by Larkspur, but it's a bit crowded for my taste.

    I like hypnagogue's rock overlooking the ocean.

    This is going to be another tough one! For some reason, though, Larkspur's photo reminds me more of winter...because that's the sort of place I want to escape to in winter! Gorgeous! Chi Meson's photo reminds me most of summer...kids playing in kiddie pools in the backyard, that's summer! :approve:

    From two weeks ago - Hocking River, Ohio. This has where I ate my picnic lunch (first meal I've had on board a kayak).

    That's a plateau overlooking Sand Dollar Beach in Big Sur. The entire western US coast (as seen from highway 1 and nearby offshoots) is just about as gorgeous, and also rife with cool rocks.
