Hope you have had a good summer. For me, the months of blazing suns and unexpected storms have always been magical. Yet this year it was also tainted by a hint of sadness. As you all know, Xtratime lost a precious member at the beginning of July. We will never recover from the loss we have for Petrinha. All the more, her short life and her even shorter stay on XT affected almost all of us.

And I thank my good friend LaBlanca, who said, "why don't we dedicate the next Photo Contest to Petra"?
This is the next contest. Our topic is one of Petrinha's favourites: deep, open, unpredictable, The Sea.
