OMG, I’m still gob-smacked – I still can’t believe it’s real.
The competition has been running for 3 months, with Ken picking short-list entries and then a monthly winner. I only entered my shots on the last day of January, and was so pleased to find out I was short-listed. There were so many fantastic photographs during January, I was happy to have made it that far. I didn’t win the month of January so I thought that was it.
But all entries were eligible for the major prizes, and I received a phone call today from a colleague of Ken Duncan’s who notified me I’d won the major prize – the Kimberley Adventure!! I couldn’t believe it! I still can’t.
I haven’t even indulged myself to have a detailed look at the itinerary or a map yet. It hasn’t sunk in. I can’t believe it’s real.
Thanks so much to all my friends who have been so generous with their comments and Likes on Facebook. It really means a lot.
No doubt there’ll be more to share as I prepare for the trip, and of course the photos afterwards.
Details of the photo:
Canon 40D, Sigma 17-70mm lens @ 19mm, 1/320s exposure @ f/4.5, ISO160. Shot on the 1st May 2011 at Avoca Beach.
Thanks for looking.
