    Title = Crossing the Finish Line

    This image was taken at the New York City Triathlon Finish Line.
    The event course consisted of the following:
    1) 1500 Meter Swim in the Hudson River
    2) 40 Kilometer Bike trail on the westside highway
    3) and finally, a 10 Kilometer Run in Central Park.

    The weather for this event was a hot 90 degree summer day in New York City !

  5. Hard At Work

    I saw this Virescent Green Metallic Bee and was totally unprepared for shooting an extreme closeup. I had the 105mm Micro on the camera, but no tripod. I took a chance and rattled off about six shots.

  6. I've posted this once on another thread; hope I can still submit it for the challenge...

    Unfortunately, Pa's wonderful photo is not qualified, therefore you shouldn't consider it in your voting process.
    However, Pa's submission is not delete and we kept it for you to enjoy! | [mod:p K]

    From the "Topic" thread:

    Pa - You're shot was taken on July 2nd it looks like...I hate to do it but I don't think your shot qualifies for the challenge. Sorry, man. It's a great picture...too bad it wasn't taken a week later.

    There's still time to get in another submission!

    Summer has come to Norway at last, and since I'm currently on the coast a sea-oriented view is appropriate

    Seven Seas


    The EXIF stuff dumped from my database reads as follows: " Råfil: DSC_4643.NEF; kamera: NIKON D2X; opptaksdato: 2005:07:09 14:07:58; lukkertid: 1/160 s; blender: f/11.0; kameramodus: Aperture Priority; ISO: 100; brennvidde: 17 mm; GPS: 58°43'16.20" N, 09°14'31.20" E; høyde: 1 m.o.h". In Norwegian of course, but the date and GPS position should be clear enough.
  9. Here is mine

    If you look deep into the eyes of this fine young mind you can see he has visions of cooling off in the pool to beat the summer heat.
    I know it is a stretch

    O.K. Sorry, I didn't read the rules carefully enough! But it did say submission, not that it had to be taken during that period.

    No big deal, I'll get one in another time.

    I will give it a try this time.

    This shot was taken on Trail Ridge road in Rocky Mountain National Park at an elevation of 12,000 feet. Elk only come this far up during the summer to escape the heat. The black spots in front of the elk are not dust bunnies, but flies.

  19. Got it. Thanks. I'm still learning to navigate this site.
  20. Time Out

    My first submission...

    This just says "summer" to me....a crisp white shirt, a hat to keep the sun off, and a cup of fruit punch. My daughter and I walked into town in 90-degree heat for a free cookie and cup of punch at our Post Office's open house. She's a girl after my own heart...there's not much we won't do for a free cookie :)
