They had recieved 12,049 images from 1,122 entrants across four sections, and the acceptance rate was approximately 30%. So I’ve beaten the average with nearly double that (58%)!

27th MoNovember '12 Title: The Pulley
Location: Heybridge Basin
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: After making my Face Down Tuesday shot this afternoon, I managed a brief walk around the boatyard at Heybridge Basin before the drizzle drove me back to the car. This pulley was attached to one of the old Thames Barges which is currently in dock for maintenance at the Basin.
