As you can see from previous submissions over the months and years in the Sketching Contests and also in our Sketching Threads at Cloudy Nights, we have many excellent sketchers posting here.
Hopefully the smoke and clouds will clear so we can have more sketching submissions in this month’s contest.
When submitting your sketch for this month’s sketching contest please include: Your Name, target, Date the target was sketched, Your location when sketching, Equipment used, Magnification used (if known), Sketching medium, Conditions (seeing, transparency). Please put this information above or below the sketch but not directly on the sketch. Your sketch should be a recent one as well (within the last few months).
If you need further information see: "Thread of interest in Sketching, including our contest" pinned at the top of this page:  also at the same location find ‘Sketching guidelines 101’

Good Luck, this is just for fun and the Winning Sketch will be Posted on the CN Home Page at the conclusion of the contest.
