LRO Land Rover 2013 Calender Competition

So a couple of months back I posted a couple of sneaky entries into the LRO 2013 Calender competition. Unfortunately for me 90% of the pictures I take are of other peoples vehicles of which I usually get some quite dramatic shots fording rivers, ploughing through mud, epic backdrops etc etc. you get the picture (no pun!). The rules stipulated that the photo you submitted had to be of YOUR vehicle and you had to be the registered owner. So with that I found my best 3 shots of my D90 and then compiled a set of my best images for friends (of their Rovers) and emailed them across to them. Turns out they are not as enthusiastic as myself and never submitted the entries but one of mine came through and made it into the top 50.

I was quite surprised at this as I didn’t think my images were ‘that’ good, but there you go. So its now down to the public vote and the top 12 will feature in next years calender and win some goodies. I would appreciate it if you could find my photo: and vote for it.  The prize I think is for parts supplied by Bearmach. With this I hope to get all the spares we need for our upcoming overland trip to Siberia (Water pump, starter motor, master cylinder, wheel bearings, you get the idea) Rest assured it will not be wasted on stainless bling!

This shot was taken in the Peak District earlier in the year (February) and the rest of the photos from that trip can be found on our Facebook page here:

If you can find the time to place a vote please let me know by posting a comment below but probably more importantly spread the words as most votes win.



19.10.12 Update: I won! Thanks to all those that voted, my photo made it into the 2013 LRO Calender. Keep your eye out for it in the upcoming issue out on 28.11.12. Thanks once again.
