Telegraph Triumph For Geoff
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

March 23, 2012:

Exbourne photographer Geoff Hodgkinson (er, that's me!) has won this week's Big Picture competition organized by the Daily Telegraph newspaper. The winning image, taken on board the Queen Mary 2 and entitled 'Deck 7 at Dawn', was taken mid-Atlantic in October last year as Geoff returned from a business trip to Arizona. Geoff, who's a member of Okehampton Camera Club, said: "QM2 carries two spare sets of propellor blades. Instead of being piled in a corner they're arranged in four pairs on the open foredeck. They look like sculptures and being stainless steel are a photographer's dream, especially at dawn when the sun bathes everything in bronze light. On board, they are affectionately known as the Commodore's Cuff Links!" Geoff, who works on international web sites and publications for high-tech companies, is also a member of Hatherleigh Tar Barrels Committee and a social historian. His image of the QM2 will appear on the back page of tomorrow's Daily Telegraph Travel section.
