Finally the results are all in and I'm really pleased to be able to announce the winners Smile

Voting is always so difficult in this contest. There were so many stunning photos, and it's worth pointing out that there was only 1 point separating 1st and 2nd place, and two photos that came within a gnat's wing of 3rd.

So, onto the winners...


1st place - Mutagen

Stoped-out working above Smallcleugh Second Sun Vein level

1st prize is the Wisdom KL12MS lamp and charger.

3rd place - Manicminer

Stope to daylight
