I've been trying hard recently to get some of my work published and I'm pleased to say that I've had a little bit of success. The BBC have just published a new book : Countryfile Perfect Days Out and my shot of Sgwd Y Eira waterfall appears on P195.

Here's the shot just in case

That's brilliant news! Congratulations, you must be very pleased!

Now for the sordid details was there any payment or was the glory sufficient? (I'd be happy with either!)

Thanks everyone,

I did get paid for the shot but it's not exactly going to make me a millionaire, nice just the same.

Well done Simon, at the least it will help further your profile, with a vehicle like this.
