Its that time of year again. Over 21,000 people entered the BBC Countryfile Calendar 2017 competition held for the benefit of the Children in Need charity.
This year's theme was, 'From Dawn till Dusk.'
I was delighted to have been runner-up with this image of a northern gannet coming in to land on the cliffs of the huge nesting colony at Bass Rock, Scotland. It is titled, 'Touch Down' and appears as a small thumbnail on the July page underneath one of the finalists in the published calendar.
Congratulations to all the finalists and the winner Dean Mason with Berry Brunch.
