    July 2021 Non-diving photo competition - Stones in nature

    Here's this month's comp - Stones in nature. Nothing to do with rock bands (before one of you starts!) but instead the placement of a stone or stones within a wilder or more natural context. Can be natural stones or man-made.

    A couple of ad hoc examples from my friend's back garden:





    Iceland's Blue Lagoon



    In the grounds of Hever Castle




    Comp to run until end of 31 July.

    Rocks - a great perching spot for shorebirds. But keep an eye out behind you!

    I suppose that Hyde Park counts as 'in nature'?

    Well yes BUT Rock Bands were specifically excluded! Come on Finless you can do better than that.

    For all the many, many people desperate for an extension to enable submission of their 'Stones in Nature' photos, you're in luck: I'm currently flitting around Kent with reduced time/wifi opportunities over the weekend, so the earliest realistic time for me to set up the poll is Monday morning.

    I can't see my photo anymore. Same last month when the poll appeared it had said I had withdrawn the photo.

    I am linking to my Facebook Birds of the Red Sea page.

    Trying out a new link:

    I use postimage as a host. That has an option for an expiration date. Perhaps you have the same?
