Salon 230:-What you did this summer

A nice easy one. Show some interesting places you visited this summer.

Here's one from me for inspiration

Zaandam by Andrew Peter Martin, on Flickr

This is Zaandam in the Netherlands.

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

Finish date Saturday 16th of Sept

Have fun

Oh dear, surely some others must have got out this summer.

One day to go.

Re: Salon 230:-What you did this summer

I took a campervan around the very north of Scotland. Saw lots of great scenery and quite a few birds (though sadly no Osprey)

On the approach to Applecross Pass

Thanks. The only place I've seen an Osprey in the wild was at Kielder last summer. It was a long way away but still a great site in flight.

Re: Salon 230:-What you did this summer

Thank you to those who did participate. I've got a thing about trams and Oporto is somewhere I've always wanted to visit.
So my winner is Gez.

Over to you.

How beautiful that looks. Keep enjoying your lives together. I have wonderful memories and photos of Roy and our travels. It does help. At least I can say "We did it" and not "I wish we had." And ... ... keep the photos coming, I love to see them.
