An easy challenge this week (in my opinion) as we are all up to our necks in seasonal thoughts and also, this year, trying to decide who to vote for (refers to UK residents only).
So, anything at all representing WET - everything from a teardrop to the mighty ocean and all points in-between.

For those who are new to this or just forgetful, here are the rules:

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. All images must be uploaded by 8pm on Wednesday
4. All uploads must be B&W (or sepia toned)
5. Only one upload per member
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week
8. Enjoy yourself
9. Stay dry, unless getting wet is deliberate.

Well as far as elections are concerned, it's like choosing between one party who has their gun to your head or the other one with their knife to your throat. I will just vote for the way I'd prefer to be finished off!!! Grin

As far as the challenge is concerned............Don't worry, I will not be getting into the shower again!! Tongue

The usual Monday reminder now that "that other challenge" is over for another week.

It was raining last night and at one point I considered getting reflections from puddles but in the end I managed to squeeze an entry in. Smile

Just over one hour to go before entries close, so get down and get wet if you haven't already done so!

OK...time is up. I haven't looked at the entries at all this week, so it will take a bit longer than usual to get back with the result...

OK then...not so many entries this week, and unfortunately 2 of them can't be considered because they were taken long before the challenge theme was announced.Sad

Welcome to both gypsyman and new member debs_ohara, and great to see new participants, but the rules do state that the image has to be taken after the theme is announced, so we cannot consider your entries. Shame, but we hope you don't give up and try again next week.Smile

So, to the 3 remaining entries...

Eddie: so typical of you, splashing about in water making a big mess everywhere and enjoying yourself like a big kid.Tongue
Phil: Moonlighting as an umbrella seller in the evenings, eh? Hope you declare it to the taxman!Tongue

IL (all hail!): The monster from the deep. An alien being. I always thought Cheltenham wasn't as innocent as it appears on the surface...

So, off to refresh my glass (H2O only tonight) before returning with the results...stay tuned.

A decision has been arrived at and the winner is about to be declared. As my brain is a bit blurred tonight for some reason, I shall not waffle nor digress. Even relatively simple answers in today's Telegraph crossword are eluding me, that's how bad it is. And I cannot blame anything concrete...

Anyway, you're not interested in the problems I have getting the anagram answer to 14 across, so I'll get to the point.

All hail our winner this week, yes, it's your leader and mine, IL with her beast in a puddle!

Joint runners-up are therefore Eddie and Phil, but not necessarily in any order...
You all did very well again!

Thanks, I think, Malc! Actually the puddle was in Cirencester where I was hunting for Alfred's Hall - a collapsing folly - but failed to find. I shall try again another day!

Meanwhile I shall put some thought into a new challenge and hopefully get something up and running in the morning!

I am sorry that my entry did not make it. It was taken a Coloured Photograph and became a mono within the rules. However having only once in the last 8 years Won. I did not expect to win but did not expect it to be ruled out of order. Eric ( Gypsyman)..
