My desktop wallpaper choice today is another of my favourite photos taken with the Nikon D200, which I sold recently after four and a half years of faithful service.
Like many photographers here in the UK, I’m a subscriber to Amateur Photographer Magazine, the world’s oldest photography magazine. One of the things they do is run the prestigious Amateur Photographer of the Year competition, and back in 2007 I was planning on entering and having a real go at the competition. This was the photograph I took for for the first round, picking a study of ice in a glass by candlelight. I assume (hope!) it was relevant to that round’s topic.
I came a cropper because I didn’t have the means of printing my photos myself, which quickly put paid to my ambitions that year. Maybe I should ask Santa Claus for a really good printer for Christmas, so that I can enter the 2011 competition?
