I've had some wonderful encouragements in my photography this week - a real bumper week. I'm not meaning to be boastful really but I'm just so thrilled.
I entered the 'Yorkshire Landscapes' competition run by our local newspaper, the Telegraph and Argus - and two of my images have made it into the last 100 (out of about 1000 entries). The next stage is a public vote to make a shortlist and then judges will choose the winner. The prize is an utterly desirable Panasonic DMC-GH1 camera. (I'd love it, oh, I'd love it.) Plus the best images will be used in a book and the T&A 2011 calendar.
Long-time followers of my blog have seen the two images in question before - 'Early Morning Sunshine on Salts Wharf' above and 'The River Ribble at Stainforth' below.

So..... now I need your votes!!
If you would like to vote :-) please access the Telegraph & Argus website, find the pictures (4/100 and 8/100) and enter your name and email address below the images. Or phone the number given under each photo above (UK landline calls cost no more than 50p) - by November 8th. Vote for both! Or vote for number 4 only - the mills - to avoid 'splitting' my vote, as most photographers only have one photo on the list.
As if that wasn't exciting enough, I also won one of the annual competitions (Natural History) at my camera club with my picture of a grey heron - another that I posted on here a while ago. And, someone might want to use one of my photos to advertise a Christmas concert in Saltaire.
As you can guess, I'm smiling from ear to ear and right down inside too! "Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! She chortled in her joy."
This also earns a spot in James' 'Weekend Reflections' at Newtown Area Photo. Do visit there to see more lovely images.
