Ness Gardens on the Wirral are holding a photo competition. It’s spread over 12 months from 1st December 2011 to 1st December 2012 and the idea is “..to capture Ness through the seasons”. Earlier this year I entered two shots into the Winter section – “Winter Leaf” and “Bamboo”. Today I entered “Brunnera” and “Garden Statue” in the Spring section:
For those who have read my previous post on the Wirral Photo Exhibition, you will recognise the “Winter Leaf” shot as I entered it for that competition as well……..what can I say, I like the shot…:0).
The rules are that the shots must have been taken at Ness Gardens and in the season for which they are entered – like so:
Winter – 1st December 2011 to 29th February 2012 – entries by 14th March 2012
Spring – 1st March 2012 to 31st May 2012 – entries by 14th June 2012
Summer – 1st June 2012 to 30th September 2012 – entries by 14th October 2012
Autumn – 1st October 2012 to 1st December 2012 – entries by 14th December 2012
I think it’s an interesting concept for a photo competition, and as Ness Gardens is local to us, and we tend to visit four or five times a year anyway (in fact the wife and I are “Friends of Ness”) it’s not exactly a hardship to visit in each season to take the shots required.
I’ll post more on this to share the shots I enter for Summer and Autumn and to ultimately let you know the results of the competition.
