May? When did that happen? Last time I looked at my calendar it was just gone Christmas, I was counting the number of mince pies I'd eaten and contemplating a rare trip to the gym in a pathetic attempt to shed the festive pounds I'd gained... We're a third of the way through the year already! So I guess that means it's time for another desktop wallpaper.....
Once again, I'm running a little competition running revolving around this photograph, but to be eligible and party to the competition details you need to be in my "Image of the Month" club. Sign up here - you've got to be in it to win it!
If it's more than a desktop wallpaper that you're looking for, then you can purchase prints or a commercial license for this image here.
Before I sign off for another week, I thought I'd include a few of the better links that I've found worth sharing on Twitter over the last few weeks. If you're on Twitter then feel free to follow me - I'm @NeilAlexanderD
