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 calendar; in 2011 my picture of a pair of socialising grey seals was chosen as October’s supporting image.
