Sorry all, my brain hurts! This MONTH's theme is "Cool".
We have had temperatures of 33C cool up lately and keeping cool is a challenge. So I thought "Cool" was a wide enough subject for you all to use your renowned ingenuity on. Good luck!
The old theme of rings remains open for a few hours yet.

It's from a trip to North Wales in April. This was near Snowdonia but we were on our way to Porth Ysgaden on the Llyn Penninsular, about 30 miles further on, where they had no snow and temperatures of 20 degrees.

Even the miniature horses need to find their own grass after a rare Timaru snowstorm. This was June 7th, 2008 and the last time any decent snow fell. Been a couple of times since then that snow has fallen but ony briefly settled on the ground.

A few years ago now, but this was the backcountry lodge in the Monashees (British Columbia, Canada) from which we did day tours to the surrounding peaks and glaciers.

There was a lion supposed to be loose in Essex earlier... turned out to be a large cat, but fortunately of the moggy variety not a tiger, lol.

It is so NOT fun to drive on roads such as these. This was in Wyoming a couple of years ago.

The Kaskawulsh Glacier in the St Elias Mountains, Yukon Territory, Canada. One of the most spectacular flights we've ever done - Mt Logan is in the background too (highest peak in Canada)

Cold looking mountains in the distance. Part of the Karakoram range.
Xinjiang province in China, on the road between Kashigar and Tashkurgan.
That's a young boy on the camel by the way.
