Ethiopia: GPP Photo of the Month

I'm pleased to say that one of my photos has won the GPP Photo of the Month award for July. GPP (Gulf Photo Plus) is a photography club of 37,000 members based here in Dubai.

It was taken in a small village on the banks of the Omo river in southern Ethiopia. It's a candid shot of a little girl momentarily distracted (by me and my camera!) from her school lessons beneath an acacia tree in the centre of the village.

Taken around mid-day the sunlight was nicely filtered through the tree above.
