Photo of the Month - September 2015

In case anyone cares (or even reads this part), now that I've finally got my Windows 10 update installed it's time to turn attention to the next round of Photo of the Month.

The winning photo will be loaded to the actbus.net front page for a month (and added to the POTM archive) and posted to ACT Bus on Facebook. The winner and runner-up(s) will also be included in the Photo of the Year vote. By submitting a photo, you are giving permission for it to be loaded onto the ACT Bus Gallery.

The rules:
  • photo must be "owned" by the person submitting it (if not, you must have the permission of the photographer to submit the photo - and identify the photographer)
  • two* photographs may be submitted by any one person, provided they have not been submitted before
  • submitted photographs must prominently feature:
    • bus infrastructure (such as bus stop, bus station, bus depot) within the ACT / Queanbeyan region (location must be specified)
    and/or
    • a bus from the ACT or Queanbeyan (taken within the region or a former ACT/Queanbeyan bus) where -
      • the bus is in focus
      • the fleet or registration number of the bus is identifiable (or supplied by photographer if not visible in photograph)
  • photos narrower than 640 pixels will not be accepted

If possible, please supply date or month of photo.

Refer here for full ACT Bus photo submission conditions.

Photos can be submitted three ways: (1) by posting to this forum topic (2) by posting on ACT Bus facebook page (and mentioning POTM) (3) by contacting ACT Bus (submit a "contact us" form, send a message to our Facebook page or send me a Private Message) - and we'll send you an email address.

* This month we are seeking photos of: Scania K320UB (steer tags) without a bike rack (including the front of the bus). If you submit such a photo, you may still submit 2 other new photos (3 photos in total).

To ensure consistency, photos must be displayed with a width of 640 (or height if 640 if a "portrait" aspect) - photos wider than 640 are required to use the option width=640 or height=640 in the image tag. For example: [img width=640] instead of [img].

Submissions close midnight 25 August, Australian Eastern Standard Time, unless extended.

Voting will commence on 26 August. Voting will close on 1 September.

Here's 358 at Belconnen Westfield today, a sunset shot, as opposed to daylight shot like most others


Here's 473 at City West from today, just to prove to someone that STAGs still lay-over here before and after routes 4 and 5


Finally here's 415 at Gungahlin East, from Saturday


Did i get the width right as required?

3 seems to be the number this time around (3 axles...3 photos? No? Okay... :-[)



483 lays over at Woden Bus Station inbetween runs on a shift involving many route 5's...



482, 516 and 893 pick up/drop off/layover respectively at City Bus Station Plat. 9



468 drops off Platform 8 Woden after operating a route 4.

Another close vote this month: well done to Man of Action for his first photo submission.

The bonus photo category for October will be SNT Rosas or Hino AC140Ks (if you have an old photo of one).
