Tameside Captured: looking through your lens

COME rain or shine – and there has been plenty of both in recent weeks – one thing remains constant, Tameside’s ability to provide beautiful photos.

And Tameside Correspondent readers have once again taken the opportunity to capture the area’s beauty on camera.

This month’s star image, and a £20 prize, goes to Paul Edwards for his brilliant image of Horseshoe Bridge at Daisy Nook.

The standard this month was high, with all aspects of the weather being caught, with Liam Moore, Patsy Fairclough, Ian Clarke and Christine Whittlam all capturing the effect of the sun.

At the other end of the spectrum, the moody photo by Gary Whittaker at Stalybridge’s Cheetham Park shows how a lack of light can also create great images.

The area’s wildlife has also been out soaking up the sun, as Jayne Bradbury showed with her photo of a heron while Gary Taylor snapped two horses under the shadow of both Hartshead Pike and some menacing looking clouds.

And Elliot Langhorn took to the skies for his submission showing how one of the old sidings sheds still standing in the Millbrook area of Stalybridge, near Grove Road, is a shell.
