I am very excited today because the news has just gone public that I have won Surrey Life magazine’s calendar photography competition. Here’s a link to the announcement. My winning image is Evening Poppies (above) and it goes on the cover of the calendar. January’s image is also one of mine: Winter on Desborough Island. A further two have been requested for the exhibition at Denbies Wine Estate in January: Moonrise over Weybridge and Autumn at the Lake.
Clearing out old files, still, I came across some shots of greenfly from May and June and thought they made a set of greedy, green, garden pests. With apologies to all the gardeners out there.
A couple of these shots are as much if not more about the background than the aphids themselves.
They are a little bit pretty seen singly like this? Not convinced? 😉
Over on my Facebook page I am giving away a 2014 calendar to one winner chosen on Monday next week from those who nominate a Surrey beauty spot. Do visit if you’re local. I am planning to compile a list of nominated Surrey locations to photograph in 2014, with a view to making a 2015 calendar from the best images.
