Well it's a bit of a shock but I have won another competition - the above image beat off some excellent photos to be placed numero uno! I'm really pleased. The whole thing was run by Thames 21 which is an environmental charity which work on London's waterways. A set of finalists was chosen for their 2011 calendar (including mine) and from that Thames Water chose the winner last night in Bromley -by-Bow.

all finalists are on display at The Millers House Cafe, Three Mills Lane, E3 3DU ~ until the end of October, so if you are in the area - why not pop in and have a look.

I was a blushing winner and almost smiled.. lol.. Still I'm really happy this particular shot won as it has always been one of my favourites. If you are interested in obtaining a copy please follow this link to Getty Images where it is for sale:
