Nature Photo Competition – Winner Announced!

Nature Photo Competition – Winner Announced!

WINNER ANNOUNCED: We are excited to announce that James has won the photo competition with this beautiful photo and story of where and how it came about that they took the photo.

Many thanks for all the beautiful photos we received, it has taken us some time to try to decide between them all, as there was such a high standard.
We would like to make special mention of Barbara for her photos of Lower Rocks, Colorado and Central Park and Annie of a Tui bird in NZ, although there were so many photos that were really stunning, it is hard to know when to stop! We also all had a laugh with Shirley’s photo of her husband poking his head out of a hole in a tree!
The winning photo captured us all with the way James captured the light and framing the elements in the photo – we hope they enjoy the beautiful bouquet and Lindt Lindor chocolates, delivered Gold Coast, value $110!

This is the background to how it came about that James took the photo:-

“This scene was taken during a random road trip I decided to do back in winter 2004 to Northern New South Wales.

It is taken at a secret location just outside of Nimbin. After pondering the tree-lined roads that boarded dense, lush temperate and rain forests I decided to stop the car and venture not far from the dirt road I was traveling on. The scene shows the loving warmth of the morning sun filtering gently through the creek-side majestic rain forest palms and other native trees. The clean stone lined creek hugged by the noble roots of the native fig made me feel privileged and sublime.”


The prize is a beautiful bouquet of flowers in season, including oriental lilies and roses, accompanied with a box of Lindt Lindor Chocolates (150gms) – total value $110 – delivery Gold Coast, Queensland.
