We received many entries and lovely holiday photos, making it very hard to select a winner. However, Hanna White's beautiful photo and evocative description had us dreaming of a sunny beach in France on a very rainy day in London.
We are delighted to announce Hanna as the winner of the Kindle Paperwhite:
"I took this photo after an afternoon spent lazing on the beach at the Ile de Ré in West France in August this year. We borrowed our house-swap partners' bikes and I think the photo captures the beauty of the French seaside as well as the French love of cycling!" - Hanna White

"Greenland Dock: As New Zealanders our house swap took up to London where we were delighted to find ourselves staying in amid the docks of the South Bank. What could be better than a summers evening, an English pub just yards from our own front door, and dinner on the terrace with the lights of London reflecting off the water? Perfect!" - Jackie Brown-Haysom
