Thank you very much for your kind words guys. There were certainly some outstanding shots there and I have to say I'm not only pleased but surprised that my first entry should actually win.

After seeing some of the other entries I suspect it might not be quite so easy to win next time, the bar is pretty high!

(I might have to bribe siskens to not enter next time) Smile

I expected an outcome like this, in spite of the fact this month there were so many outstanding screenshots that it is a pity some had to be excluded. The choice fell on those that were the best even in my opinion, and I confess I'm beginning to think the calendar that it's getting out will be more a work of fine art than a simple selection of pics.

All my congratulations and admiration to the winner and the mentions.

Marco
