Weekly Challenge #322 - "HOLIDAY TIME (VACATION TIME)"
Posted By: mecrox, 07-28-2015, 11:57 AM

It's nearly August and so Holiday Time is here for many of us (or Vacation Time in North America, I believe), so share with us an image about holiday/vacation time, whether your own or of other folks enjoying the same. For example, it could be mainly about landscape, a beach/sea shot if it's summer where you are, at a funfair or other event, food and drink, tourists getting up to all sorts or stuff, or up in the hills somewhere quite different at home or abroad. Whatever or wherever it is, the key element is "Holiday/Vacation Time", simply enjoying the world while on vacation, long or short.

Contest will close Tuesday night at midnight (GMT) - on 04 August.

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Everyone is eligible to send in their best interpretation of the given theme, as long as the photo is taken with a Pentax/Samsung camera. Themes can be subject-oriented or technique-oriented.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Samsung DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

I hope everyone has fun taking part in this weekly comp!

We went on our first canal boat trip in Wales last year. It turned out to be a wonderful vacation with the perfect mix of nature, small villages, hiking and relaxing.

Sometime it rains on holidays. Last weekend I was in Washington, DC doing touristy things with my oldest son, who was there on a working scholarship at the National Art Gallery.. Monday he had to work so it was my photo holiday. The thunderstorms and heavy rains came, I was prepared with my K-30 and DA18-135WR. The streets mostly cleared, but this young couple embraced the rain.

Holiday in Alaska

I took this picture in Anchor Point, Alaska at 10:50pm. The sun hangs in the sky so long that the golden hour lasts for nearly 3 hours this time of year. what a beautiful place to be.

Hi folks, just a reminder that our comp ends tonight at midnight GMT, which is nearer midday on the West Coast of North America and early evening on the East Coast, so if you'd still like to enter get with it

I don't know if I could relax when I see those clouds coming...

No, seriously, I think it is a beautiful picture of a beautiful place. I would love to be there!
