The results BBC countryfile competition I entered are in. Well I didn't win, not suprising as there were over 11,000 entries!

The results are here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/environment/programmes/countryfile/photocomp_2005.shtml

They are all good pictures - some are a bit chocolate box for me but there are some striking images. The heron is a really good shot as is the grouse. The cygnets are good but I suspect the BBC screwed up the crop as it looks like the right side of the image has been trimmed.

The only one I don't like is the children crabbing - it looks too posed and too much like and advert for a kiddies clothes shop.

There's a heron that sits next to a lock just like that in Reading. I saw a photographer next to it last year. I wonder...

Does anybody actually watch Countryfile apart from dodgy farmers. You hardly qualify Beta1 living in travelcard zone 3 ;)

btw i like the grouse one, there's something humorous in the variation on the 'magnificent creaure overlooks his territory' type-piece

misty dawn and lone tree are really striking, and the seven sisters one is nice in the way the houses are a kind of echo of the colour and shape of the cliffs

yeah you would have expected something like a massive red deer. But no, you get little tiny grouse guy instead.

The overall winner of the public vote & the judges choice was announced today - the Heron picture and the Children in the waves picture.

And even better (well for me) they were showing the judges going through the photos Jo Brand was sitting behind a table with a big stack of pictures beside her and a few spread out infront of her and my mallard picture was in shot on the table.

So for about 2 seconds my picture was on the BBC. Albeit at a wonky angle.
