#301401 - 17th Mar 2009 9:20am Launch of photo comp for Wirral News readers

SPRING is upon us and we want you to capture this seasonal change in all its glory.

As the air warms and the buds flower, the photographic opportunities are endless, so the News has decided to celebrate this by launching a Picture Spring competition.

We want you to point your camera at the fields of colourful fauna, the wildlife in Wirralís parks and woodland, the lively stems and the shoots poking through the warm spring soil.

Allow your lens to absorb images of snowdrops, camellias and daffodils, deciduous magnolias, cherries, and quince coming into bloom.

The Newsí award winning photographic team will judge all the entries and pick one winner.

That person will receive a framed version of their picture and a £50 voucher to spend at Fairs Cameras, Rock Ferry.

All the entries will appear in a photo gallery on our website and the best will be published in the paper.

Paul Cook, Ness Gardenís Curator, loves taking pictures of the changing seasons and has already started shooting spring.

He said: ďItís been a cold but normal winter and now itís wonderful to see all the new flowers coming through.

ďNess Gardenís lawn is looking fantastic, as itís bursting with crocus and china doxa.

ďBut Iím particularly interested in photographing the smaller alpine plants in the rock gardens and since the beginning of March Iíve been taking pictures of the iris coming into flower.

ďTo get the best pictures in spring Iíd advise people to take them in the late evening or early morning when the sun is low.

ďThis way you can get lovely light effects on them.Ē

Send your photographs to Picture Spring, Wirral News, PO Box 48, Old Hall Street, Liverpool, L69 3EB or email carrie.catterall@wirralnews.co.uk.

For more information call 0151 330 5048.

Would that be the one that wheels captured stamping on an old man in a park?
