Medallists

You might recall that I was recently  lucky enough to win my third "Picture of the Week" over on the geograph website. As usual my reward was to pick the next winner from a shortlist of fifty images. Below is the photograph that I picked as the bronze medallist. It was taken at Nostell Priory which I visited just last Friday:-
 In second place, I picked this picture of an oak tree up in the Scottish Highlands. It's near a small lake called Lock Achilty which is not too far from Inverness:-
And the next picture was my favourite so it was the overall winner. It was taken by a gentleman called Alan. The location was just east of Ilkeston in Derbyshire. Alan was standing on a footbridge that crosses The Erewash Canal. I admired the geometrical symmetry of Alan's image and how this was assisted by the reflections on the water.
 Sorry that I forgot to take Yorkshire Pudding visitors through the voting process this time.

  1. Those are lovely, and no need to apologize for not having your commenters vote. I bet when you did that the first time you never realized you'd be winning twice more so soon and making things difficult for yourself :) I like seeing your choices. There appears to be more than enough talent to go around in that competition.

  4. Of the three, I like the first one best. It exudes tranquility.

    I admit the geometrical symmetry is interesting in the third, but I'll tranquility over trigonometry any day of the week...any night, too. :)
