Now I'm not much for entering "prize" competitions, but the National Gallery for Scotland was running a comp. entitled "A day in the Life of Scotland" - so I thought I'd enter. The images had to be taken on August 20th - a day I happened to be shooting in Wester Ross. So I entered six images and thought no more...

I heard today that I'm one of the 20 prizewinners whose work will be hung in the Dean Gallery, one of the National Galleries ! I've got an invite to the VIP party, and get to meet Jack McConnell (ok, there's a down side... only kidding Jack..) and get a VIP tour of the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibition that's currently on show in the gallery.

Needless to say, I'm very pleased and am grinning like a proverbial Cheshire...

I've still to hear what one they've chosen. One of my entries was "Shadows on the Wall, Wester Ross" which is in my portfolio.

Thanks for your congrats - and yes, I'm chuffed.

Needless to say this will cost me a fortune. Karen was despatched to Glasgow this morning for stock, and returned with a new outfit for the VIP drinks reception. And I've got two teenage daughters going as well - and they've not hit the shops yet...

Yes, congratulations. The Shadow on the Wall pic is a cracker. Well done. Hope you all have a great day.
