Christine, a clearly an accomplished photographer, sent in a gallery of emotive, brilliantly captured candid images and portraits from her time in Ethiopia. In picking the best one, I chose the photograph which arrested my eye the longest, this did. Easily. Top work Christine, you were also helped by your inspired tabloid description - Out of Line.
Not one but two pixel-perfect images caught our attention for this month’s photo competition. Unable to pick a between them, we have instead opted for two winners - other winner is Barry Chapman for his seal image!
