Pho­tog­ra­pher brings pit dis­as­ter into fo­cus

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Reader's Pictures -

Snap­per Mark Far­rell’s lat­est port­fo­lio of eye-catch­ing work in­cluded a poignant look at the Auchenge­ich min­ing dis­as­ter memo­rial.

Glen­boig man Mark took his cam­era along to the site, which pays trib­ute to the 47 vic­tims of the tragedy which took place on Septem­ber 18, 1959.

Mark also sent us in images he took dur­ing trips around Scot­land, in­clud­ing a seag­ull drop­ping in on the Vi­tal Spark in In­ver­aray.

Ad­ver­tiser read­ers who would like their pho­tos fea­tured in the pa­per are in­vited to email the images, along with their name, where they are from and de­tails about the pic­tures’ con­tent, to ian.bunting@ reach­plc.com
