Seen and herd

Amateur Photographer - - 7 Days -

I have been a hob­by­ist pho­tog­ra­pher for a num­ber of years and am al­ways sub­mit­ting pho­tos to var­i­ous com­pe­ti­tions but never get­ting any­where. About two months ago I no­ticed a com­pe­ti­tion from a chain of op­ti­cians for a cal­en­dar in aid of the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety. I en­tered a pho­to­graph of two young cows stand­ing un­der a tree and it was picked as one of the 12 fi­nal­ists. The im­age is now in the So­ci­ety’s 2018 cal­en­dar (il­lus­trat­ing March). I am so happy and thrilled about win­ning, and so my ad­vice to all am­a­teurs out there is – do not give up; try, try and try again and good luck! Alan Rigley, Not­ting­ham

Well done, Alan, a lovely pas­toral im­age and you’re right – when it comes to com­pe­ti­tions, keep try­ing and im­prov­ing and you never know what might hap­pen – Ge­off Har­ris, deputy edi­tor

Af­ter years of en­ter­ing con­tests, Alan Rigley struck gold with this im­age
