On Saturday 20th January 2024, the Black Down and Hindhead National Trust Supporters group presented prizes to local photographers who had submitted the most stunning photos of the local National Trust reserves to the annual photographic competition.
A Black Down winter sunrise won Richard Walker-Liew first prize – “a stunning photo that perfectly captures sunrise on a clear winter’s day” in the words of the lead judge, Clinton Blackman.
Simon Freemantle won second prize with a wonderfully atmospheric view of Hindhead as the mist cleared on a winter morning.
Lissie Henry‘s simple but powerful image of a young family enjoying a crisp winter morning’s walk on Black Down was chosen for third prize.
Junior winner, Jack Stephenson, is a regular visitor to Black Down and beautifully framed the familiar view at the Temple of the Winds with lush summer leaves overhead and his trusty bike leant against the stone bench.
At the presentation were Bob Daniels, Chairman of the local National Trust supporters group, Clinton Blackman, lead judge and chairman of the Haslemere Camera Club, and Brian Simmons from Raymond Reid Photo, long-term sponsor of the competition.Back to all posts
