You didn't have a bad one Brian.
And you need to thank Pam for the book.
No particular highlights but two pages in Practical Photography was nice. Only one sale this year (I've not bothered much with sales but will in 2011) of this image......
2011 should be a bit more lively if plans come to fruition.....
To put an intentional comical spin on this...
1 falling into the stream from approx 6ft high and bouncing down the rocks at Ashness Bridge in the Lake District
2 going knee deep in very smelly quick mud at the Epping Forest meet this year and having to drive home in just my pants and a t shirt all around the M25
Happy New Year to you all>>>>>>>>>>>
My highlight has to be getting "Commended" and published in Landscape Photographer Of The Year in 2010...
Happy New Year !!
Quote: A couple of life enriching experiences whilst out with the camera this year:
A particularly hard ridge day in blizzard on Ben Cruachan.
A wild camp on An Teallach with both sunset and sunrise shots.
An early start up Ben Nevis in a gale to witness a stunning summit sunrise.
A wild camp at Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin.
An exceptional winter weekend high in the Glen Coe mountains.
Liathach in superb winter conditions.
.... a few more but would hate to bore you all...........
Any ONE of those would have done me John.
No personal highlights (plenty of lows) but I suppose joining a camera club and getting an image selected for a battle then being told it scored 20 points...ok the judge had a cataract problem but so what lol
Compares to all above, my highlight is probably only dim-light:
1. Started to do a series of conceptual stuff with my mates, which is something I wanted to do for a long time.
2. Finally got up my a*se and building my own website.
3. A full page published in Digital SLR Photography.
4. Won/runner up a couple of times in EPZ comps.

Highlight of 2011 - made Cheryl laugh on 010111.
Yeap, got a rocket up my.......
Doesnt compare to many on here but peoples response when you show them a photo that means something to them eg. wedding, pet etc. Makes it worth while...
Image used for a book cover, published in April!
For me it was some success in my local Club Competitions and Exhibitions.
My highlight is quite humble to what I have read here but it was taking photos on top of Franz Joseph glazier in New Zealand in November.It was amazing!!
