Copenhagen old town harbour area from a winter weekend break last year - a bit of photoshop retouching but minimal needed as the colours were so vivid.

Passion Flower

I'm pretty sure(never really knew their name, or took the time to figure it out) we have these growing on the side of our house(my mom planted them), and they spread like weeds! They do look AWESOME when they bloom though, we just haven't figured out a way control their growth. I've contemplated on digging a foot deep area around their bed, and placing a plastic sheet barrier to stop them from spreading. This is what ours look like:

As for the photo of the month for me, here's a pic of my car. Took this earlier today while we had a family outing at a winery, and also got to pick some fruit and veggies. Great day!

I hope you pick and eat the passion fruits you show in your second photo once they turn purple and ripen. Absolutely delicious.

I have honestly never wanted to try it. I don't know if every passion fruit is edible. Mine always stay a green color, maybe if something didn't eat them they would have the time to ripen. I will try tasting one as soon as they grow again.

Here's mine, hot air balloons take off quite regularly just the other side of the park next to my house.
Took this picture with my phone (HTC Desire HD)

Part of a maternity shoot I did for a friend. The full series is viewable here (http://www.behance.net/gallery/Expecting/1940429).

That's a great shot Luke. I looked at the series and wonder if you wouldn't mind some constructive criticism? I really like them but would do one thing with about 8 of them. And maybe not for the reason you'd think.

This is a picture of the Russian Navy tall-mast training ship Pallada from Vladivostok, leaving town. It's listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest sailing ship (top speed 18 knots).

I have many photos from its stay, including some brief time I spent onboard and a few shots of the young crew in their splendid Russian Navy uniforms, but I could only pick one so I figured a shot of it actually in motion would be best.

The boat itself is 108m (354.33 ft), counting the long bow it's 119m (390.4 ft).

I'll pm you about it. Don't want to take the thread too far off topic. But I'll do it a bit later. Need to do a bunch of stuff.

Here's one taken from the field above our new house, we get the same view from our bedroom window.

I could have almost cried over this one!

My wife and I were at a local resort last month (Mount Magazine) and I ran into a guy about to go Hang Gliding. I had never seen it up close and he agreed to let me shoot his flight.
Everything went well into about a third of the way through when I switched to my 70-300mm zoom. The last time I had used it was to shoot the Moon and even though I was shooting f8 and 200 ISO in Aperture priority on my Nikon D5000 when I changed lenses it defaulted to the previous setting on the lens (f22).
I shot about a dozen frames before I noticed; this one would have been my favorite other than the 1/160 shutter causing blur.
