Look at the news at the moment and there isn't much to smile about so here, at CameraWorld, we wanted our lovely customers to remember, and share with us all, their happy place!
You didn't disappoint and we've had a lovely week going through the competition entries so a huge thank you to all of you who shared your happy place with us and brought a smile to our faces.
About the Winner
Alas, there can only ever be one winner so a huge congratulations to Roger D Lowe with his stunning image of reflections in the early autumn sun. We could feel the fresh air and peacefulness exuding from this image that transported the whole team to our central happy place. Roger captured this image on a Canon 90D with a Tamron 16-300mm lens.
I'm sure you'll join us in saying a huge congratulations to Roger who has won a £100 CameraWorld voucher - just I time for the CameraWorld Black Friday Sale!
Roger D Lowe | Canon 90D | Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 DI II VC PZD | 1/200 sec. f/7.1 ISO 100 @ 16mm
Roger Lowe "The smell of fresh air, the visual clarity, the glass-like reflection of the Pond, the variety of amazing autumnal colours, the cotton textured white clouds floating below the magnificent deep blue skies. The ambience fills my heart with serenity...this is truly tranquillity without a tranquilizer."
Through the entries we were privileged to see a glimpse of the love and happiness that family can bring. So many smiling faces!
This moment captured below by Mum of two, Bella Tilley, really captures the trust and connection of siblings... with a nicely placed heart - apparently glowing - in the background!

Bella Tilley "I would love to enter this image of two of my daughters. My happy place is sitting out in the sunshine, watching their friendship and bond grow. They are inseparable and I think this photograph conveys not only their special bond but during these cold, dreary days, it transports me back to that glorious feeling of spending a sunshine soaked day in the garden with loved ones."
We have also spent this week taking a virtual holiday around the UK as you have shared your favourite spots to visit. Our 'places to visit in the UK' list just got that bit longer!
We are suckers for a seascape at CameraWorld and this one caught our imagination! The 3 second shutter speed creates a sense of surreality. It conjured up ideas of the pirates and mermaids beneath! We can see why Heather loves this part of the coast.

Heather Haigh "Flamborough Head on the East coast is my happy place, it's my favourite spot for a day out, whether watching the seals and seabirds, walking along the cliff tops, or just relishing the peace and quiet of the secluded coves."
