Congratulations to Damian for achieving 2nd and 3rd place in SWIG’s Sensing in Water 2013 photography competition. Damian said of his photo of Llyn Gwynant, awarded 2nd place: “It was taken in Snowdonia on last day of my holiday in November. I was lucky as such sunny and calm days are very rare at that time of the year.”
