A Flodden photography competition hosted by Wooler and District Camera Club in conjunction with The Remembering Flodden Project attracted entries from all over the UK.
However, first place went to “Flodden Monument at Dawn” by Don Brownlow from Norham.
It shows a piercing shaft of dawn sunlight illuminated one side of the monument leaving the face in front of the viewer in shade. A lightening horizon combined with the foreground to convey feelings of trepidation and optimism in the same picture.
Second was “Sole Survivor” a monochrome picture of the statue in Selkirk submitted by Mike Young. Third was a black and white picture titled “After the Ceremony” by Dougie Johnson.
Contestants were given a free hand to submit whatever they felt best fitted the competition title.
The next meeting of Wooler Camera Club will be on October 3 at 7.30pm in the Glendale Hall. There will be two competitions “Shopping” and “Monochrome”. The judge will be John Thompson. All welcome.
