Choosing the final eight for this took me quite a while, the standard was really high. Some of the pics I wanted in the final eight which didn't make it were extremely good.  Anyway, here's the eight, I personally think they're superb images, it'll be difficult to choose an outright winner, I'm interested to see who wins.

Aberystwyth Wales UK, June 29 2018  UK Weather:  A forest fire that started on Tuesday  26the June  is still burning and smouldering for a fourth day along the steep hillsides of the Rheidol Valley, a few miles inland of Aberystwyth in Mid Wales. The terrain makes it impossible for fire-crews to get their vehicles close to  the flames, and the fire is being dealt with by a specialist helicopter team , commissioned by Natural Resources Wales at a reputed £1000 per hour, who are dropping  1000 litre bucket loads  of water, onto the burning trees.
