Default August Monthly Challenge

Here's are the details for this month's challenge:

Theme for August: BLUE

As always, pictures should have been taken with a Pentax/Samsung DSLR within the past 90 days. Image size should not exceed 800 pixels on its longest side.

As this past month's winner, I will abstain from participating.

It's a simple theme but one that I think can be open to interpretation (i.e. color, mood, music, etc).

Have fun with it!

I think there is no such a rule. There is no need for abstaining at all

Daniel, I do not want anyone to think that I picked a theme for which I already might have a good candidate image. I realize there is no rule; it is just my decision.

One of my favorite late-summer wildflowers has just come into bloom. It's tough to photograph because it's tiny, and grows in hot sunny places full of glare & wind. But I'll make Bluecurls my entry anway! (PS - thanks for another great choice of topic!)

Good to hear from you and see that you're still kickin', PK. This shot, was it taken in Alice Springs? Or are you on mission in Switzerland?

PK - that's quite a picture, and did bring me up short for a second. I just drove back home through summer desert heat and didn't at first remember that there are ski resorts in Australia. I'm already tired of summer, and there's still a couple of months to go, so I envy you your winter.
