Grasduinen win - IILast Saturday, I attended the award ceremony for the 2008 Grasduinen contest in Baarn.
The 14 best photos (according to the jury) have been printed (very) large and are on display in Kasteel Groeneveld in Baarn until January 14. I was very happy to hear that the enormous print of my winning squirrel image is mine after the exposition is closed in January.

Not only these 14, but all 63 images in the 2009 Grasduinen agenda are fantastic photos that every serious photographer should be very happy to have in their files!

So if you happen to be in the area of Baarn, see if you can find the time to visit the exposition. Or you could always go to your local bookstore and buy a copy of the agenda. The photos that illustrate it are all very good sources of inspiration for the photographic year 2009!
