*QUICK Challenge* - Summer Solstice/Longest Day of the Year

This challenge closed almost 7 years ago.

The Challenge

This is a QUICK challenge, to give the winners a chance to participate in the July Avatar challenge
Summer in the Northern Hemisphere has just started, and the longest day has just gone. Did you take a picture that day? Were you tempted by the light lingering over the horizon at strange hours of the night or were you woken up at really silly o’clock by the really early sunrise? Or did you go to Stonehenge or your local Druid circle for a bit of sun worship? Or did you go down to the forest to pick a certain flower that will tell you who your true love will be?

We’d like to see pictures taken on or around this annual turning point, something that happens only at this time of the year (include a Description of the event for our enlightenment, please – I like learning from photos’ Description and I’m not the only one. I will reject photos with no description, this is not an ‘anything goes’ challenge)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for all those you like – the sunnier, the better

Rewards & Prizes

The usual fame and applause, plus:

  1. Winner and next top 5 featured
  2. Winner will be invited to take part in this month’s Group Avatar challenge

Additional Information

PLEASE make sure that your entry belongs to the group or else it will be removed – and if we don’t catch it at moderation stage, and we try to feature your winning/top ten placed entry, we can’t do it if it’s not in the group, so your place in the Featured line-up goes to the next in line. Thanks
