Congrats to all the winners, who will get their prizes (drop me an email with your address if you read this first, guys). But most of all thanks to those who entered - with so many entries, and so many of them so good, are you surprised it took us so long to decide? The judges were unanimous in thinking these were the best three, and that they met the rules. And as you all know, the judges' decision is final.
OK, let the games begin. And we'll probably do another photo comp presently since they seem to be popular... hmm.. is that summer I see coming?
Cool - Polar circus is a fab route.
You can now see the pictures *and* our explanations for why they're winners at http://www.ukclimbing.com/caff/features/winter2002comp.html . Once again, fab stuff by the winners.
I thought the theme was winter climbing, 'A Sense of Scale' is Alpine summer without a doubt. Nice shot though,
Could be greenalnd......
It is a lovely photo - but it just doesn't look like winter.
And as the picture is dated July 2001 it's only going to be winter if it was taken in New Zealand or somewhere....
In winter plumage of course....
What is going on in the third photo? It looks like a giant frozen piss-sickle. Was this photo taken under the toilets at the goutier hut?
