Welcome back to the Picture of the Month Contest!


Here we can take a short moment, to nominate and give recognition to the photographers and images you think have gone above and beyond on this forum. Pictures that awed and inspired you, deserve to be given credit and recognition.

Thank those who shared them in the Forums with a nomination. Whether they be artsy, creative, accomplishments, or just downright impressive, this is where we want you to recognize them. If you love it, post it here.

When you nominate an image please upload the image to this thread, tell us who took the picture, and where to find it. There's a wealth of quality pictures every month here, and many of us want to see them and recognize those behind the lens. Good luck to all of those involved. Nominations can be made from August 1st, until August 31st.

The voting poll will be put up August 31st or September 1st, and remain open for 15 days. The Winner will be announced at the close of the poll.
Who knows, maybe you'll be nominated.



To Nominate a Picture:



1.The picture must be taken by a member of Mycotopia.net - no self nominations.

2. *(Rule adjustment to extended time frame)*
Picture's must be posted to Mycotopia.net during the current contest month, or within the last 15 days of the month prior.


3. Please include the member's name, the picture to be nominated, and a link to the post where picture can be found

4. Don't forget to vote for your favorite image at the end of the month!

You can see the sulfurs from long ways off.....  obviously.............this was just a flash and fiddling with the angle until I hid the shadows.........

 

They are definitely photogenic..........

The month would not be complete without an eclipse photo. I think this was a fine example, clear and detailed, and of course very good timing.
