Congratulations Blake for winning last month's competition. Below are the history, rules and topic of this contest.

COMPETITION HISTORY:
SEP12 - SPA - JIMBOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3845
OCT12 - MOVEMENT & MOTION - SPECDECIBLE - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4319
NOV12 - DARKNESS - RACHIE_D - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5014
DEC12 - SOUND - JIMBOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5592&p=201106#p201106
JAN13 - POWER - SDLROB - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5845
FEB13 - BOATS - DENORTH - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6049
MAR13 - TIRES/TYRES - SDLROB - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6276&p=233803#p233803
APR13 - FOOD - SPECDECIBLE - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6706
MAY13 - CITY STREETS - BLAKE - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7089

JIMBOX01 - 2
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 1
DENORTH - 1
BLAKE - 1

RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 900 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 11.59 UK time on June 30th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on July 3rd.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 choices to me, and NOT to one of the other mods - they will not oversee the competition unless I am unavailable for any reason.

Only one photo is permitted per member, and may be changed at any point until the deadline. The photo has to have been taken by the member posting it.

Members may not vote for themselves, and since not voting gives you a higher chance of winning, it will be penalised by a deduction of five points [points are allocated as 10 for each first-placed vote, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd. 3 for 4th and 2 for 5th] to redress the balance, unless for any reason the member in question is unavailable during voting, in which case alternative arrangements may be made in advance.

I think that about covers the rules, other than to add that indecent images are subject to the same rules in this thread as the rest of the forum.

All that remains is for me to announce the title. Therefore the June 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

CLOUDS

Reckon I might have a chance with this one. Not sure which picture to go with, what do you guys think.

Pyrenees 1 (Somewhere just to the East of Andorra, near Perpignan)
Image

Pyrenees 2 (Taken from pretty much the same place on a different day
Image

Somewhere over the Irish Sea
Image

This one was taken at night, it's lit up by lightning
Image

This is that same Thunderstorm, directly over Barcelona a couple of years ago

Nice interpretation Jim!

Congratulations Blake, a well-deserved win there.

Banana Man, not sure which one to choose from all those. I do like the Irish Sea one though. As well as almost all of the others!

Clouds... Here we go:

This was in the cloud layer on Snowdon in November:

This was the view from my window one evening last summer:

And this is my entry, also from Snowdon in November:

Yeah, it might have been a smudge on my monitor actually.

There are definitely ladies boobies in one of Banana Man's photos though.

OK.... here are few... but I am not ready to pick just one yet.

This is one of my favorite places to... Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs
Image

Sunset at... appropriately... famed Sunset Beach in Hawaii.
Image

The 600'+ high Gateway Arch in St.Louis, Missouri, USA
Image

OK... so I have a weakness for both Sunsets and Hawaii... this time a sunset at Ko-Olina, on Oahu, Hawaii
Image

There may be more... gotta keep looking.

A few more. I honestly don't know which to enter, the competition is quite tough on here

"Turbulence" - So bad-ass you can actually see it.
Image

"Alps" - The Southern side on the way in to Milan.
Image

"Nagasaki" - It's actually in Northern Spain, the sun setting on a large thunderstorm gave this weird reflection.
Image

I might go with "Alps" for my official entry, what do you guys reckon?

This is going to be a tough one to choose from. So many breath taking pictures there. Mods is it ok to give the 1st place to all?

Image

Lake Ontario, looking toward Canada from Fort Niagara.

Another Hawaii pic, but not a sunset this time... the Windward side of Oahu....

Still don't know which one to submit though...

No, Race2win, you still have to nominate a [ranked] top 5!

But for now...

My entry thanks.
Taken from the South East coast of Majorca Cala Egos on a compact .
Gives me the illusion of a huge Moons surface pressing against the sea.
