Been meaning to tell you about this for ages....well I mentioned it a while ago that I had entered some images into Landscape Photographer Of The Year 2007, this was back in April. I heard that I had been shortlisted a few months ago with one of my images and then finally a few weeks ago heard that I had at least made the exhibition in London and the book that was being published as a result. The big winners were announced recently and although I didn't win any of the prizes I was pretty made up to have made it as far as I did with a humble old Holga shot. Just thought I would share, oh yes the image. It's this one of Wick Quarry. Well I now have my sticky fingers on a copy of the book and very nice it is to. My image has a whole page to its self. The book is full of some outstanding photography and I feel honoured to be published with such company. Anyway if you find yourself in a big book shop why not have a look.

Another shot from Crete of probably my favourite set of derelict windmills! This was the first time I had ventured down the hill with the Hasselblad, a slightly more difficult manoeuvre but well worth the trouble. The wind was a tad more gentle on this occasion so I felt it was worth the risk. I'm sure that I will return to them again and again as the changing of the seasons seem to show them in a different light each time. Anyhow here is a little aerial view of where they are. If you look carefully on the map it appears as if there are 13 or the title I have given this will be a waste of time! Have a pan out and a browse about.....the two villages the south of the windmills are Kastelli(Καστέλλι) and Fourni(Φουρνή).

And nobody can keep you from the ones you love
Nobody to steal away your sway the way you walk
May there never be a time that you don't walk through
May there never be a time when you don't live through
Be a star, be an altar and I will hang it on you
Your are, you are alone into the unknown
You are, you are alone into the unknown

May there never be a time that I don't love you
May there never be a time that you don't pull thru
Be a star, be an altar and they will hang it on you
