Wu has very graciously bestowed upon me the honour of carrying the forum equivalent of his socks (just for this month, mind you)

So it is with great pleasure that I present to you this month's entrants for the January "mudwinter" photo competition and ask you to cast your vote...

voting closes at 19:40 on the 31st January GMT - that was as close as i could get to midnight

A tad off-topic; This is going to sound incredibly naff for someone of my age and experience but pictures like that really make me miss my Rottie who I had for 12 years from a puppy... :oops:

I have a similar photo' in my portfolio of my young daughter running along the beach, with Bens paw prints in the sand at her feet; even though she is facing away from the camera, looking at the incoming wave, I can still picture her expression and even though Ben isn't actually in the photo' he is a very big presence...

...but that is what a good photo' is supposed to convey, and Mr Pandas does just that - it's too good!

A good photo should have the power to move one to tears.

I also know where you are coming from, lost our golden to cancer 2years ago...

Chin up and remember the good times you had. :)

Like lots of them - very strong field. Got to go for zigzags though. Reminds me of so many winters riding round my local hills, although I used to get the 'where's the canti gone', rather than 'there used to be a v on that fork'. :)
