I doubt very much that you wish you were right here. As lovely as the Small Aperture mansion is, it’s pretty drafty right now. How about the Isle of Jura, just off of Scotland’s west coast, for a week next summer? Sounds ideal to me, especially if I could win the trip there with a photograph.
The Isle of Jura and Visit Scotland have dreamed up a competition where three people and their partners can win a week’s holiday on Jura, as well as an Olympus E-PL1, by submitting a ‘postcard’ of a destination that inspires them. Take the photo, explain what makes the place amazing, and submit your postcard. The judging panel includes Jim Richardson of National Geographic fame. (He’ll also be on-hand to give the winners a two day photography master-class.)
Entries are being accepted between now and 21 January 2011. All of the details are available on the competition website.
P.S. Deer out-number humans 30 to 1 on Jura
P.P.S. My favourite whisky comes from Jura
