Tim’s award for town for­est still

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A LAND­SCAPE pho­tog­ra­pher has scooped an award after cap­tur­ing the tran­quil beauty of Mac­cles­field’s For­est.

Born and bred in the town but now liv­ing in Es­sex, Ti­mothy Smith’s pic­ture of a frosted wooded area in the for­est re­ceived a Judge’s Award in the 2014 Land­scape Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year Com­pe­ti­tion.

The ac­co­lade also means that his im­age was se­lected for in­clu­sion in the awards book ‘Land­scape Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year: Col­lec­tion 8’.

Tim, who went to Beech Lane Pri­mary School and then onto King’s School, was also the ‘Judge’s Choice’ of head judge Charlie Waite.

An ex­hi­bi­tion is cur­rently run­ning which shows all the images from the book on the new Mez­za­nine level at London’s Water­loo train sta­tion, which ends on Jan­uary 31.

Tim, who grew up on Meadow Way, Mac­cles­field, said: “It was es­pe­cially sat­is­fy­ing to have had an im­age which I cap­tured so close to Mac­cles­field se­lected.

“My fam­ily still re­side in the town and I still visit reg­u­larly – usu­ally with my cam­era.”

The Tourist Of­fice on Mac­cles­field’s Mar­ket Place stocks a range of greet­ing cards by Tim show­ing views in Mac­cles­field and its sur­round­ing ar­eas.
