Love your lakes
Cornwall’s stunning lakes are caught on camera by the winners of the South West Lakes Trust and South West Water 2018 Love your Lakes photography competition
Cornwall isn’t short of gorgeous waterside photo-opportunities - but they are not all on the coast, as the winners in the South West Lakes Trust and South West 2018 ‘Love your Lakes’ photo competition more than illustrates.
The competition, now in its sixth year, encourages people of all ages to make the most of the fantastic photo opportunities at their lakes across Devon, Cornwall and West Somerset. The lakes of the South West are popular among amateur and professional photographers alike, providing a unique combination of beautiful landscapes, highadrenalin activities and rich wildlife.
The winning entries reflect the essence of their respective categories, which are based on four of the five campaign themes that underpin the work of South West Lakes Trust: Active Outdoors, Discovering Local Culture, Love your Lakes and
Play and Explore. Photos had to be taken at one of South West Lakes Trust’s sites.
The competition was judged by Emily Fleur, ‘one of the region’s most accomplished young photographers’, Andy Parsons, Chief Executive of South West Lakes Trust, and Head of Community Relations for South West Water, Alan Hyde.
A selection of the photos will now go on display in Lakeside Café at Roadford Lake: just minutes from the A30 between Okehampton and Launceston.
What better excuse to enjoy a stroll around the lake, view the fantastic array of photos and warm up with a homemade soup in the café. Just don’t forget your camera! southwestlakes.co.uk
