Mud glorious mud

Our local paper, the Stirling Observer, carried this photo I took ( or rather a member of staff at the Macrobert took it for me on my iPhone).
After getting no coverage in this paper of my solo exhibition in Dunblane museum last month I was beginning to think it would be impossible to get any arts coverage, something I know most artists are forever comaplaining about.
So, what's the secret? to be honest I don't know. What I do know that in this age of massive cutbacks in newsrooms throughout the land
you have to send stories and photos in to the paper literally "ready to go". They have neither the staff nor time to do re-writes.
