Photography Competition Winner for September

We have some incredibly talented photographers amongst our readers, once again we received some amazing photos covering a wide range of subjects. But after much discussion we chose this lovely photo of the ducklings on Lancaster Canal taken by John Jones. Very appropriate for the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust membership prize and ties in with our featured charity this year: Canal and River Trust.

Ducklings on Lancaster Canal by John Jones

The CJS Team say this is a simply a beautiful scene; the depth of this image really appealed to all of us, noticing the duck and ducklings in the foreground before being drawn deeper through the arch of the bridge and on to the water beyond. The bright sunshine illuminating the brilliant greens of the verdant plant life and creating the reflection of the mother duck on the water and highlighting the ripples the little flotilla are making in the otherwise still water. All creating a very pleasing image where the more you look, the more there is to see.
