The Real Lake District, an organisation comprised of over 40 hotels and 20 attractions across the Lake District, has concluded their Photography competition and awarded their Winner the ‘Ultimate Lakeland Adventure Package’.
The competition welcomed thousands of entries from visitors and locals alike seeing a final shortlist of 12. A panel of professional photographers based in the Lake District chose the winning photo, Lee Mann, of Lee Mann photography said, “The Standard of the images was extremely high and eclectic, it was very difficult to pick a winner. The winning image possesed everything I associate with the lakes; romance, beauty, atmosphere, drama and the sheer vast landscape. This is a great competition, it’s fantastic to see how our amazing surroundings are seen to the individual.”
Fellow judge, Tiree Dawson from Tiree Dawson Photography agreed the standard of entries was extremely high and noted, “The winning shot really stood out for me because it combines both technical know-how and a real sense of emotion – when these two things come together that’s when the magic happens!”
Winner, Adrian Potts, will be enjoying a stay for four people at the stunning Lakeside Hotel, a cruise with Windermere Lake Cruises, access to Treetop Trek and Treetop Nets and Brockhole! Mr Potts said, “Wow, I am delighted that I have won! The photo was taken on a frosty December morning at Todd Crag with my daughter and her boyfriend. The low hanging cloud was starting to burn off in the morning sun revealing some of the pine trees peeping through to create a perfect image.”
