Welcome back to the Picture of the Month Contest !


We need to say how much we all appreciate every one who participates in this contest, including all of you who simply enjoy the pictures.
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, documented 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 May 1st, until June 30th.

The voting poll will be put up May 31st, or June 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. Please remember to vote at the end of the month !



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!

Starting off with this most unusual, and beautiful picture of a pink mutation.

This is not a photoshopped color adjustment, as shown in the other photo in the thread.

Diadem, Alpha Coma Berenices..  Added by Eratosthenes in A.D. 300. Berenice, the wife of Ptolemy Euergetes, offered up her hair to Venus on condition that her husband returned safe from the wars. The hair was placed in the temple but was stolen, and to appease the king's wrath it was said that Venus had taken it into heaven to form a constellation. 

 

A crown works also, but I have always studied the stars.  :tongue:

Those photos are beautiful. The crane, pink cubes, wood miner, the blue itty bitty shrooms, the king of kings (holy shit that looks heavy), and the blue stems above are all so DYNOMITE!(JJ from good times) Oh and that grape ape looks like its been lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar! Looks good enough to eat.
