Two days ago was my birthday. And on that morning, a surprise came in through email. A letter from the organizers of the Veolia & BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2012 international contest congratulating me for being chosen for the shortlist of the finals and asking for the high resolution file of one my photograph. In their email, they mentioned having received over 48,000 photographs from 98 countries.
Even if the story ends here, it made my day and week. I won't show you the picture until I get the final results around May 18th (I am superstitious).
