Our September ‚Get Dusty‘ is all about the weather and its effects. The category is ‚Landscape‘ and includes seascapes and cityscapes. Fog, mist, rain, snow, thunderstorms, you get the drift. Please, do not enter picture postcard landscapes with blue sky and fluffy clouds; show us the many different faces weather can have.

Figures may be included, as long as they are an integral part of the scene and not the main subject.

As usual, every member may post up to two entries. Deadline is September, 25.
