This is an abridged form of my entry, with photos not the same as entered, as I understand these now belong to the NZ Listener .
Entry photos had no title attached to them.
Some of the other entries can be seen at NZ Listener Photo Essay Gallery.
Summer’s work, Winter’s Comfort.
I was happy with my entry, it took time, serious thought, careful selection and some editing, ( it was suggested not to do much post-processing) , it has been a good lesson in what judges are looking for, and I hope if they run the competition next year, to enter again.
Quotation of the day, author unknown,
