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 Life - - FRONT PAGE -

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
