Tim’s award for town forest still
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.
