Wanaka tree

Well blow me down!

I've just received an email that starts like this:

'Dear Paul

Following your photograph entry to the Spirit of Carnival photo competition during November, we are pleased to let you know that your attached submission has been selected for 2nd prize. Are you happy for your name to appear in the local press and on the Somerset Arts website as part of the publicity for the competition?'

And this is the photo.


I don't think it was the best of the carnival photos I took, that honour goes to the one with the umbrellas with the light shining through them, but, hey, who am I to argue?

So, it looks like I'm going to be receiving a new compact digital camera as the prize. Not to be sniffed at.

I'm suitably stoked.
