After the resounding success of our Wrapped in St Marys event, it’s wonderful to relive it through the many photographs that were taken.

Editing and uploading them is a mammoth task due to the sheer numbers of images.

However, I’m making good progress, and you can now enjoy the event virtually here …

Enjoy!

as i mentioned in a previous post, the winners of the annual Greater Esk Tourism Photographic Competition were announced at a special function on 14 November 2012

the photo which attracted the most votes from the public is entitled autumn with a touch of winter, by peter troode

it’s not difficult to see why this lovely photograph topped the list

owen hughes, who selected a winner for the main prize (fingal artist maggie fletcher), is shown below (right) with peter and the photo which won him the viewer’s choice award

there were a large number of entries this year, so it would not have been an easy task to either judge or vote which was the best photograph

stay tuned to find out what the theme will be for 2013!

and the winner is …

maggie fletcher from fingal with her stunning photograph entitled frosted webs

maggie is a talented artist who is well known for her wonderful paintings and drawings, including miniatures

a well-deserved win, i think you’ll agree!

dramatic skies

here in oz it’s still winter, but a hint of spring is in the air

these photos were taken within about 15 minutes at around 4 pm one afternoon this week

in this one, i tried to capture the quality of light filtering through the branches of a large gum tree

the sky was amazing, with the sunlight and the clouds interracting and changing all the time
