You never know, Roger, look what happened to poor old Stoates!

BTW The Ouse in flood - what colour is that water?

It was in September (probably the worst time) and I think the floods contain half the upstream farmland!

Re: Discussion and Comments for Challenge 61 - WEATHER

I've counted 15 entries so far...I know it's only the second of these new style challenges, but I think this proves that this new format is most definitely going to be a success. It's taken us a while, but finally we've got something that everyone can participate in!

Hopefully we'll make it into the 20's before the cut-off.

I've spotted a runaway winner, but I'm sure I'll be proved wrong as I was on the last challenge

Well done everyone for taking the time to enter.

Janet

Have to agree with this John - some great images already posted and 1 more day still left to enter before I have to make the difficult decision.

Re: Discussion and Comments for Challenge 61 - WEATHER

Although the new format does not necessarily get you out specifically to get suitable images, it does make you trawl through your archives, which is often more difficult if you are dis organised like what I am, LOL!
