    Milan (aka pictogramax) has set a pertinant theme for us to ponder this week.


    As for the next theme, here we have a cold wave with rain that just won't stop, preventing me to continue with our "May Prompts Challenge".

    So to chase it away, I propose this week's theme to be "SUN"!​


    If that sun still refuses to shine you are free to enter an older image.

    I have a bunch of good ones in the can already, but the sun is shining today so I'm gonna try to find a way to harness its' energy.

    Hmm, the sun is shining here as well, unfortunately there is a great thick bank of cloud between us and it, I guess it must be there, we don't need the lights on :frown:

    I'm not a morning person and the sun rises pretty darn early this time of year, so I don't get to see the sunrise very often... but just for once I was awake to see it, and I loved the silvery-golden reflection off the dewy grass :smile: we live in a beautiful world...

    Normally I'm out early in the mornings. Haven't been up to it lately. Here's a shot from my backyard just a short time ago.

    These sunflowers looked amazing with the early morning sun streaming through the windows.

    The sun was going down tonight and lined up with the dogs looking out the screen. Lucy's face was totally in shadow, so I tweaked the daylights out of it in some HDR software. Over processed, but she's still lovely.

    Finally it has something to record

    This is a sunshine hours recorder, it's not had a lot to record in recent weeks, however summer has arrived in the last couple of days and some nice long traces are being recorded at last.

    The afternoon light in our back paddock during winter is just lovely. Our fences are a little less lovely, but I still find them photogenic!
