Though I am on my way to Thailand, I am able to share some photos from Sri Lanka before take off. While staying in the beautiful Southern Province I fell ill with a terrible head cold. A few days out capturing the beauty- the rest of my days were spent close to the hotel. As you can see- it wasn’t such a horrible sick chamber!

Zoe King won with her picture of Gangaramaya Viharaya Temple in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The competition’s esteemed panel of judges included Stuart Franklin, Ian Berry, Massimo Vitali, and myself. I did indeed choose Zoe’s picture as the winner! This is a very complex image, with a lot going on – color, line, repetition and movement. This complexity is what makes it interesting and draws me into the scene.
