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….
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….
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.
