More competition wins? Why, thank you!

As the above title would allude to, this post is veering somewhat off the recent topic as I had some recent news via email from those kind people at Weathernet.

As some of you who have followed this blog for a little while may know, I submit a number of weather related pictures ever year to this company to see if I can win £20 for them using an image on their calendar that they send to customers around the country (and maybe even THE WORLD…mwuhahaha). Anyway, I received an email the other day and I have again managed to make it into the calendar not once, but twice. As per usual, I wouldn’t have chosen the images they did but, hey, who am I to complain, £40 and a free copy of the calendar is pretty good for two pictures!

As I say, this post is off topic for those of late, but please find below the two images that they chose. Before anyone asks, I’m unsure if I am Mr October/November/December or whatever on the calendar, I shall have to wait until it arrives in the post. Firstly, a little spiders tent, covered in dew….

Luckily, to keep up appearances, the grass had been cut just days before!

And lastly, a close up of some hailstones I took after a quick shower in the Autumn. I suspect it was the cousins of these little blighters that did for the bumper on my car last year too….

Nowhere near the size of the hail in the US, but still hard and noisy

There we are, a competition winner again. I still don’t think I could win anything too much more technical than this though, if only for the fact that the “proper” landscape photographer needs a wide-angle lens and the cheapest I have seen is around £500! Second-hand. I know where to aim my talents and this is just fine by me.

Thanks for dropping in, see you soon.
