Win­ner in the frame

Macclesfield Express - - LIGHTNING SPECIAL -

AGE UK Cheshire East has re­vealed the win­ner of its 2016 Pho­tog­ra­phy Com­pe­ti­tion is John Fur­ness from Mac­cles­field.

The judges thought the win­ning pho­to­graph cap­tured both the spirit of grow­ing older and the beauty of the lo­cal coun­try­side in Cheshire East.

John said: “I am de­lighted to have won, but the key thing is sim­ply to en­joy pho­tog­ra­phy and there are plenty of won­der­ful scenic places in Cheshire East that de­serve to be pho­tographed.

“This pic­ture was taken near Jenkin’s Chapel and it shows the mag­nif­i­cent views across Cheshire East. I thought I have a cam­era, no short­age of lo­cal beau­ti­ful scenery, so I set the cam­era to self timer and just gave it a go!”

The win­ning pho­to­graph will take pride of place on the char­ity’s web­site and in the public ar­eas at Age UK Cheshire East for peo­ple to en­joy.

Along­side be­ing a tal­ented photographer, John is also a volunteer for Age UK Cheshire East, de­liv­er­ing IT drop in ses­sions for lo­cal older peo­ple.
