Best Driving Views

I have found yet another superb competition, this time it is with CarCraft – and if you enter you stand the chance of winning a brand new Nikon Coolpix S3500 digital camera! All you need to do is show them your best snap taken from the side of the road and you are in with a chance. All the details can be found here, but hurry, the competition closes on the 14th October.

As anyone who reads this blog knows, I just adore photography, and for that reason I don’t often leave my camera at home. One of my favourite photos was taken while I was being a taxi for my children – and all I had with me was my iPhone, I really kicked myself that I didn’t have my ‘proper’ camera with me as the view was stunning.


I was busily driving along on my way home with all the children in the back when I spotted the sunset and the single poppy in the field. It was so beautiful I actually made the children get out and watch the sun go down, I think this sums up what a beautiful country we live in. I know being typically English we moan about the weather, but we have had one of the most beautiful summertime’s we have had in years. Mine should win because it sums this up so well, poppies are so typically English and are used to represent those that fell in the war. I would love to win this as my children love photography too and want to start taking more photographs; I would let them have the prize so they can make sure they never miss a sunset either. (and I must remember to always carry my camera with me!)
