A nice challenge - easy to find a subject - and I've shot a few for it this week already - but less easy to make an attractive and interesting picture. And it's far too hot to think about it right now - 27.9 degrees in the shade at lunchtime! And even warmer indoors. Maybe I'll get a chance for a better shot before Sunday....

Friend and I are big game (rhinos) hunting tomorrow; there must be a chance of shooting something cirular.

No worries on the wildlife front; the rhinos are all over town, and don't mind being shot!

I used one of my earlier rhino shots as an entry in the 'footsteps' competition. That gives you an idea about the sort of game I've been hunting. I'll upload a few more later.
I think I may also have my entry for the circles comp.

What a rubbish weekend, I had a plan for this weeks comp all I needed was the sun to shine like it has done all week!!  All we have had for Sat and Sun is grey cloud and cool, it was even raining yesterday morning.........................now back to work and the weather woman said we are back to 30c+ GREAT  :(

After waiting for the elusive sun I had to find something else late last night, so I am in with this

After being with no camera for 3 weeks after my whole kit was stolen, I have at last been returned to the land of photography, thanks to a very good service by my insurance company, who replaced everything from my memory cards to my camera and 4 lenses. What a godsend they were after the heartless act of thieves!

After toying with a few ideas and images, I have decided upon this one
