Monthly theme - "Summer Fun" - July 2006
As it's winter in the hemisphere where I live, I had to search my archives for an image for the monthly theme. This is a resubmit - boys competing in a surf carnival event in Sydney last January. Cropped, levels, buzzed.

I'm glad you resubmitted this. It is fantastic. Love the way the frame is divided into sections.
Summer is but a distant memory here but this capture brings it back to life.

Yes, but your winters are very much like our summers once you get up to the Gold Coast or Pilbarra on the west side. I love this photo.
