Here  is Matthew Steele’s Prize winning Photo.  Matthew is aged 15 but was actually 13 when he took this photo, which makes it even more impressive! We are very grateful to Adrian Beasley who judged the competition and the comments he made about it are below the photo.


Matthew Steele

1st Prize

For me this image has everything. Taken in the “golden hour” as the light streams through the trees and highlights the mist. It is an evocative image bringing back a memory of playing there and the natural beauty of the place that is Manning’s Pit. This tree is one of the icons of this small valley and Matthew has really captured it at its best. Technically, the photograph is excellent. Well exposed and composed.
