I can see there is some tough competition this month, so I just chuck these three in to swell the thread.

I was up before dawn last Friday and the sky at sunrise was a pure joy to behold. Made me feel happy to be alive.

Cats seem to have a way of showing their emotions. Here's my cat expressing joy and happiness.

Vervet monkeys playing on a kid's playground slide. Certainly they were a joy to watch.

A joy to see your entries, Anton.
Spot on theme, I think. The cat is my favourite although the monkeys is something I don't get to see every day over here.

Latest entry for me.

Undercover, there's something smiling.

And the winner is...... Roxndox (Jim)!
The pure joy beaming from your face is infectious and I was immediately imagining you down there with the turtles having a time of your life. The cherry on top is the water drops that add a sense of action and fun to the shot. Thanks for sharing!


A few runner ups for me were:
Ivoire: Three friends. Very well done and the happiness of the three friends fully displayed.
GT's sunroof shot. Knowing that this shot was taken after enduring weeks of miserable weather provided added contrast and the joy is tangible.
Bart's #1 Alps shot. Such a beautiful scene and capture that enabled me to imagine how enjoyable it was to take that evening stroll.

Congratulations to the winners, especially grand prize winner Jim. Great contest. Todd did an excellent job setting up, running, and judging the competition. Thanks for all the hard work.

Underwater? My only water proof camera is the Kodak Playsport. I live on the Missippi river. Can't see your hand two feet in away in that water. Ack!
thanks
