When I first moved up to the North West I wasn’t ready for the deluge of rain that was about to play a major part in my life! I can see why it’s all so green now. I do wonder with all of the rain I seem to see on an almost daily basis that when I was younger drinking a glass of tap water back “Down South”, did it end up as one of the many thunderstorms beseiging our lives now. So as you probably know, I’m a bit of a dab hand when it comes to photography and I do love a picture! So when I was given an opportunity to feature a competition I jumped at the chance. Not literally, because I didn’t want to waste the jump. It’s a photography competition with a difference.
[alert color=”BLUE”]With all of the rain we have here in the UK, what better way to celebrate our climates than with a PUDDLE COMPETITION![/alert]Puddles are something we Brits are have to endure/enjoy and have themselves had many a celebrity moment.
