This proved to be a popular diversion last year so here we go again....
I've selected below a selection - a sort of 'Top Twenty' favourite pictures (in no particular order) taken in Shropshire during 2008. I'm interested to see what 'appeals' to others!
You will find an voting box to the right, for this first round simply check the FIVE pictures you like most! (click thumbs to open a larger image) Five votes maximum only please! (Only one voter is possible per PC sorry!)
I will let this poll run until December 16th and then, the top three pictures will be included with more photos taken elsewhere in the UK during 2008. Voting will then begin again over the Christmas period with YOUR No 1 Picture of the Year being declared on New Years Day....
