Thanks for your patience folks. Results have been a bit delayed due to crazy work schedules!

Here are the winners of the 2013 photo competition Smile

Worthy winners all around. I hope everybody enjoyed entering and viewing the entries!

A big thank you to everybody who entered. Looking forward to the 2014 competition.

First Prize: pringledude

Danby Level Lead Mine

We liked the sense of being in an abandoned mine; a few artifacts in the foreground, and the very fine stone arching. We also liked the superb lighting, it would have been an easy photograph to burn out, but the lighting is consistent and effective.

Pringledue wins the StenLight S7+ Rebel ES edition sponsored by Excellent Stuff.

Second prize: Scottiedog

Glen Sannox Barytes mine on Arran was a solo explore that I needs a revisit as there's plenty more to see. Some parts that need swimming/a boat to access. A place that I love as its in among the wild mountains.

Third prize: Scatts

There were some stunning images in this year's competition. Judging is always hard. I really hope everybody likes the winning photos. We did!

Congratulations to the winners; and if you didn't win, thank you very much for entering and see you next year I hope!

A quick word on voting; all admins (5) voted, independently their 1st, 2nd and 3rd; with 3, 2 and 1 points being awarded respectively. To ensure fairness all round a guest voter added a sixth set of votes this year. The total of these points gives the final positioning.

Thanks for judging my photo for 2nd. Big Grin
Its good to see Scotland represented here. Our mines are not necessarily the most well known, extensive or expansive but we do have awesome scenery, such as the mine in Glen Sannox on Arran.
There are still mines to be discovered & when we do the photos will be posted here

congrats to the other winners too Thumb Up
