    July. Rain? Floods? Or a scorching end? Let your photos tell the story :wallbash:

    Anyway, lovely nw photographers - let's get those fingers clicking and those shutters buzzing and post into this thread any photos taken during July 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 July 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 :lol:

    This is probably way too early to post three, but I've got three and so if I witness a mega-tornado on my trip to England next week, which is entirely probable knowing my previous luck, I will have to beg for a fourth and withdraw one of these.

    As always, not claiming to be the world's finest technical photographer, just looking at scenes I can't help but photograph, and this be the results:

    (1) Okanagan valley sunset, July 1 at 0400z, so June captured in July, should be worth a vote for that reason alone.

    Then looking west across Slocan Lake this morning from New Denver, BC, towards the Valhalla Range, and the ever-shrinking New Denver glacier which is one of the world's smallest at about 10 square kilometres. Some of the white stuff in the alpine is the remains of the heavy snowpack this season.

    If you're wondering which patch is the glacier, it's the highest portion of the white surface in the right centre of the photo, the rest is snow, some of which lasts through the summer near the glacier. For those interested in micro-climates, this lake is quite deep and rarely freezes except in the coldest winters, ergo it has not frozen substantially since 1978, there have just been patches of ice on it in late February such as in 1996 when we were staying here for the winter. On the other hand, the lake is meltwater-fed and rarely warms up beyond 17 C so it makes for a bracing swim on a hot summer day. This valley gets some of the heat of the interior valleys but not the full shot, a hot day here would be 33-34 C rather than 38-40 C as in the Okanagan valley. Today, it is about 24 C at noon up in the village, which sits on a bluff over the lake, but down by the shore it feels like it is 15 C, and there's a lake breeze of about 5 km/hr. This must be about the smallest lake that can generate a lake breeze, it's 30 km long north-south and 5 km wide. As you can imagine, when there is a storm here, a huge south wind develops ahead of the storm, and then a strong northerly which fills the lake with whitecaps for a few hours. I've seen metre high waves on this lake after a thunderstorm.

    Thank you xxsnowflakexx and mac :(

    Mac that sadly is the case, however there have over the years been a few reported sightings of isolated glow-worms these were probably introduced and without the natural food didn't survive long. Worth keeping your eyes open though as there has been a recent reported sighting! The theory as to why this is the case is that Ireland is separated from the coasts of England and Wales by a much deeper channel, so that even in the depths of an Ice Age, when sea level was at its lowest, Ireland would have remained largely isolated from mainland Britain, meaning that the glow-worms didn't get across.

    Sorry for going off topic

    I thought I'd be a bit "arty" with this one. I took it at Mythe Lane at Witherley near Atherstone a couple of weeks ago just as the floods were subsiding. Hope you like it! :)landscapes006mediumyf4.jpg

    No need to resize it, as it's well within the maximum guideline size.
