Judging by the last batch of photos (winter) I definately have my work cut out, here's hoping for some dramatic skies over the Cambridge area and the rest of the country is blanketed by fog Tongue.
Good luck everyone.

Yes, and here are some definitions from two different dictionaries.

Skyline, outline of hills, buildings etc., defined against sky, visible horizon.

Skyline: (1) The line along which the surface of the earth and sky appear to meet; the horizon.
(2) An outline, as of a group of buildings or a mountain range, seen against the sky.

Ok, I live on the outskirts of the fens where a mole hill is the closest we have to a mountain!
fortunately i'm down Winchester way this weekend, so fingers crossed i can come up with a worthy challenge.

Last week it was winter - no winter here. This week it is skyline. I live in a small town where downtown is a four block square with the courthouse in the middle.

However, I solved the dilemma, and shot my challenge entry today. Soon to be uploaded.

Just uploaded my entry, got lucky yesterday the sky was wonderful in Malta. It was also featured on the major local newspaper as it was so dramatic. Lucky for me, I had my camera on me and snapped some shots too!

Thanks for the comment cats_123, regardless of the competition result I'm glad I joined this group, as I was only involved in two other groups aside of this one, with only one featuring a competition.

These weekly competitions urge me to keep taking pictures consistently and that's a "win" in itself more than the result per se. Still, I'll always give my best as I'm typically fairly competitive hehe.

So once again, thanks! Smile
