Emily Wallis has won the Natural Highcliffe Castle Photographer of the Year competition 2017 with her entry ‘Lookout Duty’.
The wonderfully titled ‘Lookout Duty’, captured by Emily Wallis, has been judged as the winner of the Natural Highcliffe Photographer of the Year competition 2017.
The judges were particularly impressed with the timing of the shot as the tiny caterpillar displayed its balancing act on a blade of grass – reaching out to the big wide world. Emily took the photograph as she walked through the diverse habitats of Highcliffe.
Twenty of the best photos will be displayed within the libraries at Highcliffe Castle from 30 March through to 16 July 2017.
Said Stephen Noble – events and weddings team leader, “We wanted to develop a competition and exhibition to showcase the variety of natural beauty on offer within Highcliffe. We have been blown away by the quality of entries which confirm why we should be so proud of the village, with its natural coastline and diverse woodland, offering a habitat to a host of wildlife.”
