Photo competition - July 2012 - FAVOURITES

Many thanks to Hawkins2 for picking my photo as the winner of the June photo competition :)

 

The rules this month are a little different ...

  • Photos should be cache-related (as normal).
  • At most two photos per person (as normal).
  • Each photo must include the name of the cache and the current number of favourites awarded to it.
  • Every photo must have a different number of favourites!

The competition closes when the month ends. I'll pick a winner very soon afterwards.

 

---

Need help posting photos? You can try this recipe:

  • The photo should be attached to one of your cache logs.
  • Visit the cache listing, find your log, then hit "View / Edit Log / Images" (at end of your log).
  • Click the image you want to upload: you'll get a new web page called something like http://img.geocaching.com/cache/log/d23bf205-c5a2-4b8e-86e9-9426d0871cf7.jpg
  • When composing your forum post, use the the "Insert image" icon, just to the right of the yellow smiley, and copy/paste that http://img...jpg stuff into the URL box.

To get you started ...

 

20 favourites: Glorious Gloucestershire.

(So, by the new rules, 20 is now "taken" - future photos must have a different number of favourites.)

Taken opposite GC2RW7H - 0 favourites (well, you didn't say that the cache had to have favourites, just that it had to have a "unique" number of them!!!)

 

And yes, the goslings did indeed join Mum and Dad in the canal, one by one. The word that springs to mind is plummet, rather than jump!

I'd like to add one on behalf of another team if ok?

With just the one favourite Church Micro 774…Pennard (http://coord.info/GC1V60P) was found by team Wenglish on their Daughters Wedding day. Their daughter, who it's worth pointing out is not a fan of caching at all, had no idea the cache was at the church, nor did she know or was she told about it joining them in the picture. So the guys managed to grab the cache and photobomb it into a wedding picture (taken just after the service) - I've not caught up with them since they told me about this so didn't find out what ex-Miss W's reaction to it was, or even if she knows about it yet. But I thought they deserved an honourable mention for carrying out the joke in such an epic way!

Saw this opposite GC329Q5 on the 4th July 2012

"Phone Box, now owned by Longstock Parish Council, has been converted into a book Exchange" , and it is a Grade 2 listed building.

Tsk tsk, still no photos. Well then I'll have to claim number 5 for myself with this rather alarming Google Streetview picture of a road near the charmingly-named Bottom View.

Er, hang on, we had that at post #11 for another cache!

 

( Still admissible ... just a bit mind-boggling :blink: )

 

Edit: actually, no, I'm going to rule it inadmissible owing to the other team getting there first with coordinates closer to the monument. What a meanie! But you can have another go for free.

:lol:

 

I've just noticed that The Blorenges have already put up one photo each in this month's competition... so please ignore that last one!

 

I do like this idea of adding photos from Much Favoured Caches though.

Many thanks to all who took part this month -- a great effort by everyone as we got photos of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 33, 37, 42, 50, 52, 67, 100 and 173 favourites!

 

Honourable mentions

 

These snaps from The Blorenges, rickardclan, Spanner15 and Splendidz all caught my eye. I still can't believe that the father of the bride turned up with a film pot micro :rolleyes:

The winner

 

It was a late entry, but what a photo ... and just plausibly cache-related too ;) Well done to Dogfort!

DF, before opening the August competition, will you say a bit about how you got such a striking photo? What camera, lens, settings, post-processing ...?

Hi! Thanks for selecting my photo. We got the cache on the way into the park and just 33 hours later I snapped this from our seats. No special camera or lens, just experience in getting the settings right. I used a Nikon D90 with a normal kit lens.

 

Shut: 1/60

Ap: 5.0

Iso: 800

White: Cloudy (It brings out firework colours)

 

I took a load more panoramas from the night. Give them a look: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.364941536907722.80089.154163551318856&type=1
