    Flaming June. Wimbledon to look forward to (ahem), test cricket, camping, bbqs, beer gardens...

    Anyway, lovely nw photographers - let's get those fingers clicking and those shutters buzzing and post into this thread any photos taken during June 2007 that you wish to enter into our Monthly Photo Competition. Maximum three entries per member.

    Any photos can be submitted. These will then be sifted into weather-related and none weather retaled before voting. The weather related photo that wins the vote will be the photo for June in the 2008 netweather.tv calendar.

    Remember:

    Entries will NOT be accepted if they're sized above 1024 x 768.

    So please resize.

    Here's a free resizing programme - it really couldn't be easier:

    Or for Macs:

    Happy snapping :unsure:

    Hi all,

    I'm not sure how "weather relevant" these are - but they've all got loads of blue sky in them! I spent all Saturday at Biggin Hill for the first day of this year's Air Fair and came away with a few good shots (not surprising considering I took over 1200 on the day - isn't digital photography a wonderful thing?!)

    I managed to get out for a few days to visit my nan in Hunstanton which is where the sunset photo was taken. The flower was taken in my garden yesterday just after it had rained.

    I agree DS - fabulous shot of the Red Arrows breaking formation and coming straight at the camera in perfect symmetry. I don't think I have ever seen a shot of them from that angle before. You must have had an incredible vantage point and used a very good long lens. And you obviously had better weather for the show than we did at Southend the week before. The weather was awful.

    Well done :D

    Guys,

    Thanks for the kind comments - a few of the pics did turn out rather well. I looked at the Red Arrows' site and they do have a "gallery" section but there doesn't seem to be a way to post to it! Maybe I'll drop them an email.

    Surprisingly enough my vantage point wasn't particularly special. I was lucky to have a very bright day (which enabled me to hand hold my Sigma 50-500 lens) and the Red Arrows do that particular break from about 500 Ft. That picture is a 100% crop which turned out quite well considering.

    I've posted a few more on my photobucket page.

    You're not going to believe that I took this picture in June (Friday 15th) just a half hour's drive from where I live, but also at 1100 metres above sea level at the Mount Seymour ski centre which is usually free from snow by the end of May, but this year snow has held on due to continued cool and moist conditions. At the time this picture was taken, 8 pm, it was about 5 C at this altitude, 15 C down closer to sea level.

    A sample of the beautiful skies we have had here in Devon this last week. Photos as it was - no enhancement. Taken on Friday 15th June, early evening.
