It’s been a beautiful day to be outside today, perhaps sitting in the shade with a cool drink and/or a book. It’s also been a beautiful, but hot and sweaty, day to be outside strimming and raking in our meadows, checking water levels and giving some TLC to one of our hides! Thank you to all who helped today under the clear blue skies.
In other news: Calling all Photographers…
The Foxglove Covert Local Nature Reserve (LNR) Calendar has come to take a regular place on many of our walls and it’s a great way to support the reserve. This year we are holding a competition to find amazing photos for next year’s calendar.
The photos should be taken on the reserve at Foxglove Covert LNR or on the surrounding moorland. We will be choosing 12 landscape format photographs to be used in the calendar, illustrating the season and/or showing some wildlife. We will also be looking for a suitable portrait format photo for the front cover.
In addition to having your photos in the calendar, there will be a prize for the photos which the judges consider to be Best Adult photo and Best Child photo (16 years and under).
Please submit your photos as prints (minimum 6” x 4”) in an envelope marked “Calendar Competition” to the Foxglove Office (in the Field Centre), by post to Foxglove Covert LNR, Wathgill Camp, Downholme, Richmond, North Yorkshire, DL11 6AH or email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a file size of between 1MB and 4MB and the subject line ‘Calendar Competition’ by FRIDAY 21ST OCTOBER 2016.
The competition is open to everyone. Please include a title and location for your photo (s), your name, contact details including a phone number and your age if 16 years or under. You can enter as many photos as you like as long as you are happy for your photo(s) to be used in the Foxglove Covert LNR Calendar and any associated publicity. All photographers will be credited. For full terms and conditions email email@example.com.
I reckon you can do better than this photo I took today of a charismatic subject, but out of focus!
