Mark Hemingway's dramatic shot of the M62 motorway

PHOTOGRAPHER Mark Hemingway clearly doesn’t travel far without his camera gear.

“I was on my way back from Haigh House Hill and was crossing the motorway bridge when I saw this view.

“ I had the tripod in the boot but the picture was a bit shaky because I was on the bridge near the Wappy Springs and it was really very windy.”

Mark, who lives in Lindley, works for a construction company and spends his working life photographing buildings and making them look good.

For this striking picture of the M62 motorway, he used a Fuji X1 Pro camera.

“As well as being a photographer, I’m a local councillor. I’d been out to see someone in the ward who wanted to raise an issue with me and was on my way home when I stopped to take this.”

We always need submissions for Picture Of The Week.

If, like Mark, your eye is caught by a stunning image, a beautiful building or happy faces at a community event, take a picture and send it in.
