Anybody know what’s happening to the Monthly Imaging Contest? There has been no comment about Octobers winner and no November contest. Is this the end of the competition?

Well, since there was only one entry in October (and a very fine one at that) I guess there is no competition. Hopefully as the clearer skies of winter come about there will be more entries going forward.
Clear Skies!
