Our holiday photo competition was one of our most popular yet! Over the past month we’ve had scores of entries, meaning it’s been very difficult for our panel of judges to select just one winner. So we’d like to say a big congratulations to everyone who entered! But after much deliberation, we decided that the photo of a female gorilla and her one month old baby having a bad hair day was the most eye-catching. Captured in Rwanda, Amanda added the photo was taken during her “best holiday ever.”

We thought it was a touching snapshot and it looks like you were in the right place at the right time to get it! So congratulations Amanda on a superb photo, you’ve won a Nikon D3300 Digital SLR Camera for your efforts.

Our judges were also impressed by a number of other photos, who narrowly missed out on first prize. These included this impressive photo from Mary Arden’s house in Stratford on Avon.

Mary said: “It was a rapturous moment as the eagle owl flew low over our heads in silent flight.

We also loved this colourful photo of the stunning island of Capri, which was taken from high up in Anacapri by Simon Drew.

Flamenco dancer

Last but not least we liked the passion that was in this sizzling Spanish snap of a flamenco dancer by Dianne Young.

She told Staysure: “Sunshine in February, watching flamenco outside in the local square; what better way to spend a few hours.”
