Image of 2012 - Shropshire

Current postings will be posted below the image review postings, please scroll down to see what else is happening (unless you don't like Waxwings :-) )
It's that time again - the annual end of year picture accumulation from Shropshire. It's been an interesting year with lots of travel elsewhere, ups (retirement) and downs (back injury) and consequently the number of images are down in number. The Shropshire year list has been a bit of a struggle but at least the 160 mark seems possible now. I think we will see a resurgence of enthusiasm on Jan 1st 2013 :-)

I've selected below a selection - of twenty favourite pictures (in no particular order) taken in Shropshire during 2012. You can simply select your favourite photo(s) from the assembly - always interesting for me to see which is the most popular!

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 19th and then, the top three pictures will be included with more photos taken elsewhere in the UK during 2012. Voting will then begin again over the Christmas period with YOUR No 1 Picture of the Year being declared on New Years Day....
