NOOK's summer photo challenge

Well!  We're half way through the summer, both boys are at camp, so I thought it might be a good idea to get this project going.

Here are the rules:

Nook Summer Photography Challenge

How to play
 Set up your own thread in this forum with your name or alias in the title.
 Copy & paste the complete list of challenges into your thread.
 When you link a photo to your thread, simply edit your first post & insert the link. Then add an extra post in your thread so we know you have posted new pic’s.

The rules
 Contest runs from 12:01AM Friday, June 1st to 11:59PM Saturday, September 15th, EST.
 All photos entered must be taken in the timeframe of the contest.
 All photos entered must be taken by the Nook member (or by members of their family). No professional photos, please (unless, of course, you are a professional photographer!)
 One entry per challenge, please.
 Photos must be linked directly from an online server like PhotoBucket, but to qualify for prizes, photo MUST be linked to your thread.

The prizes
 There will be prizes awarded at the end of the contest.
o Most challenges completed (top 3): Ties will be determined by a random draw of all tied participants.
 Number of prizes will be determined by how many entries are received.

I have a few other ideas up my sleeve... so stay tuned... :-)

So let's get uploading!!!
