Thanks so much for including my Namibia pic. Nice memories... though a long walk to get into that part of the desert... one dune after another! We'd get to the top and see another one ahead. It is a magical place.

It looks magical and Namibia was on my list for this year... 

 

Btw the 😎 for the owl picture was unvoluntary as you all probably guessed 🙃

That and the fact that the polls were wrong. 😂

 

I also read some bigwig tweeted that the poles were wrong. I am not sure how he knew that 😀.

 

I voted for your picture actually. Incredible scene. I hope your lungs are ok.

Thank you so much!!! I still can't believe that's what it looked like. On that day, I had this irrational terror that we would never see the sun again. It felt like the end. I will never take clean air and blue skies for granted now. But we are fine. It's a beautiful day.

That's it, we have a winner! Unlike elsewhere, it's a man with an orange face 😁

Happy to pass the torch on to @wiskerke!

 

Congratulations on the win 🎉 and thanks everyone else for all the great images (I said it before - I had 25 finalists really). 

 

🧡

 

Thank you! 🍾🥂🙌

And all those who voted! 50!

And thank you for a very successful challenge. And all those great contributions. My personal choice was the Pantone mug, which I thought was the perfect answer.

But today I'm clearly very happy with my celebratory orange guy.

(And no re-counts! 😁)

 

Now let me think of a good one for the rest of the month.

edit: and here is that new challenge.

I was one of the others who voted Pantone mug. Wonder who the third was?  Care to own up?

Congrats! As long as it's not the other orange guy, I'm good. That's fine. 😁😅
