I am so chuffed!

By Holmewood
I entered this photo into the Daily Mail Weekend Magazine photo competition back in 2017. I knew I hadn't come anywhere so I was really surprised to receive an email on Friday to say it was being put on display in their exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London this week. I received a similar email in 2015 with a different photo and went up to London to see it only to find that they had forgotten to include it. This time they promised to send a picture of it on the wall and it's there - see the version. I haven't stopped smiling!

Thank you for the votes and comments on my last upload. Special thanks to Fred (Badgerfred), David (davidgibson), Jeff (kojack), Peter (Mollycat), David (cymru2019) and Lin (sweetpea62). I have turned off voting as I have put this shot up before on the site but I had to share my news.

Have a great evening.
