Christmas 2020 Photography Competition 31st December 2020 by Whittington Castle Christmas at Whittington by C Schlatter It was on a lovely cloudy evening when I walked past with my family to see the Christmas lights in our Village. It was just beginning to get dark and the lights went on! Santa at the Castle by Dario Schlatter Under 15 year old entry I took this picture when Santa was at the Castle with his Sleigh. Its always magical when he comes past in our village Golden Sun in December by C Schlatter I took this picture on a cold morning when the sun was really golden. It only happens in December when you get the reflection and that means Christmas is not far away.

My photo combines the creativity of the patchwork ornament with the reflection of the indoor lights on the bells and the lights in the garden outside. Red sky at night Whittington’s delight by Debbie Stedman We went for a family walk after our Christmas dinner & noticed the swans had returned & the sky was beautiful. The dramatic sky had gone as quick as it arrived. Debbie Stedman Debbie Stedman A Shropshire Christmas by P Collyer We lost my Mother in 2020 and always travelled South to be with her at Christmas, so this year was first at home in 15 years. My wife wanted a uniquely ‘Shropshire Christmas’ scene so snuck out when the snow landed over Xmas and captured this shot for her. 12 days of Christmas 7 swans a swimming by Julie Sheffield I wanted a photo to represent the circle of life and no matter how bad a situation may seem if you look you can always find beauty at the Castle. This year the swans raised 7 cygnets after the disappointment of the previous year Thank you all key workers by Julie Sheffield I wanted a photo to represent the difficult year we have all have had to contend with hopefully things will be better in this New Year.
