Object of the Month – November 2023

Winning Photograph

KMM’s Photography Competition, Summer 2023

This month’s object is a photograph taken by Alfie, aged 13.  Alfie entered our summer photography competition, winning first place for his fantastic shot of the blue lake. 

The theme for this year’s competition was ‘Old and New’ and the judges felt that this image had perfectly captured the transition from a bustling, noisy colliery to a place of peace and tranquillity.  They were impressed with the colours, and in particular how it captured reflections of the habitat around the lake.

Here is what Alfie had to say about his photograph:

“When I came across this amazing view of the lake with all the colours of the trees reflecting in the bright blue water, I knew I had to capture it.”

“It is a peaceful part of the park and I love riding my bike here and taking the time to take pictures of nature around me.”
