Exciting News & A Bit of Ancient History

I was away from home this weekend attending a landscape photography workshop on the Bruce Peninsula here in Ontario. Aside from the very early mornings and less than ideal weather on the first day it was a fantastic experience. I will tell you more about it a little later in the week and post some images once I can sit down and process them.

Before heading out for a four drive on Friday to meet the group I received some very exciting news. The kind folks at the Travel Supermarket announced the overall winners of their Capture the Colour competition and I came in second overall. You can see their post announcing the winners here. Needless to say I was a little stunned and over the moon. Here was my submission / blog post for Capture the Colour. Thank you once again to Susanne from Buntscheck blog and Ingrid form Cosy Travels of the Viking and his Kitten for the nominations.

Now on to today’s image… (this is the ancient history part)…The Roman Coliseum.

Click to enlarge (it really looks better).

        • You drove right past my “blink and you miss it” Village of Dundalk :). Tobermory is beautiful isn’t it? Were you still able to get lots of pictures even though it was raining?

    Wonderful news Edith. Congratulations on the image. I think it is one of your best and well deserved. Nice image of the Colosseum. It is so hard to capture it given its size.

    • Thanks Len. You’re right it is a tough one and I didn’t have a wide angle lens at that time.
