Sussex Wildlife Trust ‘Sussex Seasons’ Photography Competition

The village of Harting, West Sussex

I’m pleased to say that I’m a winner in the Sussex Seasons photography competition organised by the Sussex Wildlife Trust! The winning photos form part of the Trust’s 2012 calendar which you can download from their website.

Two of my photos were selected for the calendar. One of them is a picture that I took of the Sussex village of Harting from the top of the South Downs last February. It was one of those photo opportunities that come along once in a blue moon. We live at the bottom of the Downs, and I could tell from the light above the fog that was swirling about us that if I could get to the top of the Downs I would be above the mist and there might be a chance of a decent picture. And here it is. Everything fell into place, and of course a few moments later and the opportunity had gone.
