Park­life is cap­tured in all its glory

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - NEWS -

The gen­tly chang­ing sea­sons and the wildlife that make it their home have all been cap­tured by park users with an eye for an im­age.

The an­nual Mote Park Pho­to­graphic Com­pe­ti­tion fea­tures dozens of pho­tos snapped by peo­ple who love their lo­cal green space, Mote Park in Maid­stone.

Through­out the year the en­tries are whit­tled down each month in a con­test on the Mote Park Face­book group, be­fore a judg­ing panel chooses the fi­nal three best im­ages of the year.

This year, the judges picked a strik­ing photo of stand­ing dead­wood by Rob Swan for him to claim the Sea­sons cat­e­gory of the con­test.

A cheeky close-up of a char­ac­ter­ful swan won Kris­tian Weeks the top prize in the wildlife cat­e­gory.

And a sum­mer­time shot of the long val­ley won Roger Wilkins the Land­scape cat­e­gory (pic­tured be­low).

The com­pe­ti­tion was split into the three cat­e­gories with a top prize of a £100 shop­ping voucher each from the Mall Maid­stone.

The judges took some time de­lib­er­at­ing over the 12 fi­nal­ists in each cat­e­gory to de­cide the win­ners.
