Farm Life..Landscapes..Birds..Working animals.. Water World..Country people..Wildlife..Leisure & Pleasure..In all Weathers..Insects and Spiders..Plant life..the Lighter Side of Country life. Something for all of us then! The Prize is Photographic equipment for the lucky ones! You can get more information online, Good Luck to you all!..Caroline
Thanks for that Caroline.. graham
There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.. Ansel Adams
Thanks for the info Caroline, I've seen the standard of many images submitted for the calendar and it is very high indeed. A snapper like me would have as much chance of winning as finding hens teeth in the garden, so I leave this kind of thing to my betters. Good post though, all the best, Mike.

and mike you never now what judges like and people ive learned over the last few years the photos you think are great are not all ways the ones people comment or like the most you have as much chance as any one does
as we say here in the west midlands get your finger out and get snapping lol
Mike, last year the favorite winner of the judges was a photographer who just had a pick up and shot camera!! it was a picture of sheep walking through snow! ..Caroline

I've seen pics that have bowled me over with their brilliance and I'd have bet anything they would be a winner, but they never even got a mention, so in all it's a funny business. All the best, Mike.
You're quite right Caroline, I remember seeing that pic and being very impressed with it and it brought home the fact that if possible, always carry a camera wherever you go. Mike.
