All About Water

Another terrific week with a new record for participation, and increasingly wonderful photos.  The following are our winners for the week:

FIRST PLACE:  Ron Shook, Lace in the evening sun.

2nd PLACE:  Brian Crossland, Lumsdale

HONORABLE MENTION:   Terri Byron, Mist from Niagara Falls.

BEST OF THEME: Bob McLaughlin, The summit of Whiteface Mountain, in the Adirondacks

Selected this week by the administrators, we debated the merits of the many submissions this week and finally decided on Bob's photo, which incidentally also tied for Honorable Mention.  We felt that in addition to being a beautiful photo, this photo presented an omniscient-like view of 'water everywhere'.


  1. I remain so very impressed with our small group of photographers. Week after week they seem to raise the bar.

    I want to congratulate all the winners of this week's ALL ABOUT WATER event. It was very difficult to vote for just three. So should we have more votes? I am unsure it would be any easier.

  2. IMO, it would NOT be any easier. For me, I look for beauty, symmetry and craftsmanship in keeping with the week's theme.

    Of course, final choices always boil down to personal taste. And then there are the personal 'loves'. Gosh, did I fall in love yet again with those adorable 'water dog' Doxies of Sweet P's - a shot that's hard to pass up, GF!

  3. Yes, brilliant, Bob! Your summit photo is gorgeous. You're truly sitting on top of the world here!!
