Salon 259 :-Blue Skies

As we've had unseasonable weather in the UK this last week lets try "Blue Skies".


Here's one I took the other day.


Roding Valley meadows by Andrew Peter Martin, on Flickr


So anything that features some blue sky.


Here's what you have to do


1. Photographs must be displayed within a forum post and posted in this thread. Please keep images to no wider than 1600 pixels and no taller than 1200 pixels.

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

3. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself. In fact, comments are to be encouraged!

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

5. The curator’s decision is final.

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

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. To clarify, the copyright of images posted to the forum or gallery become part of the site's copyright, but only for the protection of the owner of the image. The owner of this site will NEVER claim ownership or additional use of any image without the agreement of the owner of the image.

The deadline for entries this time is Midnight Thursday, 14th of March 2019, GMT.

Re: Salon 259 :-Blue Skies

This made me smile because the cloudless blue skies have disappeared today (at least here in the home counties).



So back to the archive

Re: Salon 259 :-Blue Skies

This is too late but I thought I would post it anyway (please don't include in the contest):





This was an evening twilight, shot with my Huawei Mate 20 Pro during a visit to the supermarket


I don't know why but I always get inspiration there - usually like this, in the middle of the car park!

Re: Salon 259 :-Blue Skies

Thank you for your entries.


Some nice blues there, I really like Pat's chairlift shot, Rab's seagulls and Garry's windmills.
Thank you to the others who posted.



But my winner is Barr1e with that wide vista from Iona, somewhere I've not been.


Well done and over to you.
