Judge's Comments

A moment of reflection (get it, reflection?)

This thread has been absolutely wonderful. I have discovered places I need to go, things I need to see and do. And most of all it has highlighted to me, the pure joy of owning an Airstream and simply using it for what it was made for.
In here you will find how we love and cherish our pets. (Did you see the dog with sunglasses? (RIP) Or the one that stares at the water?) We want to share our camping experiences with our kids and grandkids. There are gorgeous sunsets, sunrises, and even both at once. I saw ice and rain, conditions and places that were simply serene. Others that looked quite wild. There was fog, clouds, beaches and forests. I discovered a desert with it's cacti can be as beautiful as a couple of Corona's on a beach. Some of our Nations National Monuments were featured, as well as the natural wonders of lakes, rivers, rocks and trees. There was an abandoned buggy, and a bike still being used. I am not sure but I think I saw a UFO (post 140) ? There were black and white pics, color pics and a tree in sepia tones that made me just want to go sit under it. Colors that just popped, oranges, purples, reds. And I have discovered that polished trailers rock!!!
There were bubbles, two pictures of bubbles that made me smile. How did they even get here?
So...we love our Airstreams, but we also love to share them, even if only with pictures.
Thanks all for a fun ride. I will post a winner tomorrow.

I have whittled it down to the top 10! No negotiations. I AM THE JUDGE!

Oh, and my dear wife (Sunny Skye on the forums) has decided the winner gets a Grand Prize of her own creation! You should be afraid, be very afraid.....

Judges Comments

OK folks, here we go. I had narrowed it down to my top 10 pics. (which were actually 13, since I am not really that good at math) You may be surprised at some of the pics but in many cases it was the story that accompanied the pic,, that drew me in. Here were the original top 13.
Posts 5b, 13, 15, 18, 20, 28, 29, 33, 44, 62, 86, 124b, 141b. Notice some have a b, that is to signify which of the pics in that post I chose. I had to do that because of all you cheaters that put several pictures in one post...

I highly recommend you revisit these pics. Good stuff.

Congratulations, Feash Air! Beautiful photographed and well deserved!

Thank you Chuck and Skye for hosting a great competition with a great theme! I don't envy your decisions to narrow all the fine choices down to just one but you did it. And I think you picked the best one!

Congratulations Fresh Air...., & to everyone! Chuck and Skye, what a great theme. As for me, and already stated, I've seen too many places I want to go and see/visit, not just this month, but each month. Too many places, too little time. I really enjoy this thread.

Great choice, all 5 were winners, any of the others could also have been a finalist. You had a tough choice this month and made a good one based on the catagory.

Congrats Fresh Air
