“As a professional photographer, it’s one of those serendipitous moments. Not sure that’s what happened here, but either way, and we’re delighted to give it first place! simply beautiful.”

Second Place

Photo 1 – Emma Bunting

1 – Emma Bunting – WInner 2nd Place. Druridge Bay, Northumberland.

Judges comments:

“Personally loved this picture, it’s not over produced, its captures a moment, a scene of “walking the dogs” on a beautiful day under an amazing sky! It’s also very subtle in its narrative – and the sky says it all.”

“Such a beautiful photo and the dogs playing in the sea brings a happy feel to it and made me smile”
