    Congratulations, Clive! This is a beautiful image. You now have the privilege of selecting our next challenge topic. Please look through our previous topics to make sure you don’t choose something too close to one of these and then get back to me when you have made your decision. There is no rush – we won’t be announcing the next topic for at least a week.

  • I am honoured and flattered Adrian. This is the first time that I have actually won a challenge!! I will do as you say and be in touch with you over the weekend.

    Thanks so much once again.
