PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION AT WHITTINGTON CASTLE
This month our theme is: Lockdown 3 – light at the end of the tunnel.
For this competition photos can be taken at any location. There are plenty of opportunities to be creative with this theme: you could use your daily walk to inspire you. The winter light plays an important role in lifting our spirts at this time of year and it’s vital for our health and wellbeing. You could photograph light falling on your favourite walking spot or empty town streets, the light falling on your family and pets or you can be creative and choose an abstract way of portraying how our life has needed to adapt. Above all, have fun with the theme!

Fiona Barkley– Judge for February
“I’ve been nursing for 31 years & currently work as a staff nurse for Leonard Cheshire Charity at Dolywern in the Ceiriog Valley. I have lived in Whittington for nearly 23 years and prior to that lived in Ellesmere where my parents still reside. I consider myself to be very lucky to live here. Whittington is a charming, picturesque village and is full of friendly people. You can never walk past anyone in Whittington without a smile and a ”hello”! The pandemic and lockdowns seem to have made the community even stronger and more caring than ever before. Neighbours really have supported and reached out to each other. Greg (my partner) and I often enjoy a walk to the Castle for a moment’s peace from this challenging world right now. We are so very lucky to have it on our doorstep.”
Good luck and enjoy your photography!
