Roger Fry’s striking image wins our Wild Weston iwitness24 photo challenge.

Mercury readers were set the iwitness24 photo challenge of capturing on camera their take on the theme, ‘Wild Weston’. We were looking for images highlighting the wildlife of Weston and we received all sorts of amazing pictures as well as some rather interesting ones too.

Roger Fry’s photo of flocks of visiting knots decorating the skies over Weston seafront was our favourite and wins the challenge. Roger filled the frame with the birds in flight but still managed to keep some of Weston in the background, which gives a sense of scale and location, the lighing was just right as well.

Other notable entries incuded Sally Griffiths’ picture of a busy bee and Charlie Ross’ close-up photos of a dragonfly and damselflies around Backwell Lake. We also enjoyed seeing Nick Page Hayman’s fun picture of some unexpected wildilfe in the form of a sand-sculpted shark on Weston beach.

The theme for our next photo challenge is ‘Colourful Weston’. We want to see your colourful pictures taken around Weston. To enter, simply go to www.iwitness24.co.uk and upload your image to the ‘photo challenge’ group.
