Last night a yacht caught fire in the marina we live in. From the comfort of my own bedroom I was able to get about 50 shots off whilst the blaze took hold, the mast collapsed, something caused a small explosion, and the firefighters tackled the blaze. After emailing off 15 of the best to the Daily Echo picture desk, they have selected one of them to accompany their story on page 6 of todays edition. It is already up on their web site with a byline, which the print edition should carry as well. They are paying £30 for the photo.
The boat was empty, nobody was hurt.
Update: I’ve picked up the paper. Page six, four column colour photo as main photo above the headline. Very chuffed 🙂
