BBC Countryfile Calender Finalist 2014

14/01/2015

I am pleased to report that one of my pictures - of a harvest mouse perched in a Clematis seed head - has been chosen as 'September' in the 2015 BBC Countryfile Calander, which is produced annually in support of Children in Need.  There were over 10,000 entries this year, so I was really chuffed to have been chosen as a finalist.

The image is admittedly a bit cheesy, but this is among my favorite pics of the past few years and I can see why it was chosen - it seems to  fit the style of the calender nicely.  

Earlier this year I received a copy of the 2015 Countryfile Calender signed by John Craven (!) together with a very smart framed picture with a plate saying BBC Countryfile finalist etc.

This is my second success with this prestigious calender; in 2011 my picture of a pair of socialising grey seals was chosen as October's supporting image.
