A superb photo, a deserved win for sure.

Also should mention Brian Kerr's fabulous photo of Ketley Crag which won the British Archaeology section. Both excellent.

Yes absolutely, both excellent for sure. They should post all the entries online. I'll bet there were so many brilliant photos. texlahoma Posted by texlahoma

Hmmm... not so sure Mr t (is it really necessary to emphasize people and their footsteps when the place can speak for itself). This is still my favourite - Littlestone Posted by Littlestone

" Note the prizes given by Andante."

Ahh, yes, the penny's dropped. Richards says of the photo, "It embodies the idea of people going out and exploring...".

Andante ('The Experts in Archaeological Travel') offer, "...different ways to enjoy exploring and understanding the past - in ways which distinguish the traveller from the tourist."

Tut tut...
