      Practise makes us a little better, it doesn't make us perfect.

      What would Vedder do?

                    Congratulations and well done to all!!! I didnt get a chance to enter this year - not anything really worthy, and somehow not the time (now what sort of excuse is THAT!). I will be there next year - but meanwhile ... well done to everyone who entered ...... !!!

                              Congrats everyone! I did post a couple of piccies this year but to be honest my crops were only adequate and most stuff got eaten before it got photographed. I never seemed to get enough to make a group of 3. Any chance of seeing the winning pictures, Seahorse? And please can we have another one next year.
