THESE lovely scenes of Huddersfield were taken by the winners of the Examiner's Photography 2002 competition.
All seasons and settings were celebrated in their pictures - from a beautiful rainbow over St John's Church, Kirkheaton, to flowing water at Eastergate Bridge, Marsden, winter fields at Scammonden and a summer meadow in Brockholes.
The winners and runners-up in the adult and children's categories were presented with their prizes by Worthington's Photoxpress, of Holmfirth.
Their photos, and others from the competition, will feature in the Examiner's 2003 calendar.
Kenneth Newlove, of Rectory Drive, Kirkheaton, who won the adult category, captured the wonderful rainbow by standing on bricks to look over his garden wall.
"I was sitting in the conservatory after a storm when the sky changed, the light came and that was it," he said.
"Photography is my main hobby. I took this with a compact camera, but I have other cameras as well.
"I mainly take landscapes, but I photograph just about everything, such as on holiday in Canada last year."
Mr Newlove is a member of a photographic society called the 35 Postal Club and gives talks and slide shows.
Runner-up in the adult category Lisa Hollingworth, 23, of Huddersfield Road, Honley, chose her scene at Eastergate in Hey Green, Marsden, as she was looking at the place for her sister's wedding.
She is a professional photographer with Mooney Photography, of Armitage Bridge and works for the Football Association, taking pictures of England matches.
"We cover all the games and two of my colleagues went out to Japan for the World Cup," said Miss Hollingworth, who studied photography at Stockport College.
But Lisa will be taking a break from photography on her sister's wedding day - when she will be on the other side of the camera as a bridesmaid.
The under-16 winner, Adam Pell, 11, of New Hey Road, Outlane, has ambitions to be a press photographer.
He persuaded his grandad to drive him to Scammonden, where he went looking for snow scenes.
"I like taking landscape photographs and I took lots of them that day," he said. "I've got a camera with a big zoom lens, but it's quite easy to use.
"I take photographs on holiday and everywhere I go."
Runner-up George Barker, seven, of Far Banks, Honley, saw his flower-filled meadow when he was walking home from school.
He took lots of pictures of the sunny field - which is off Woodhead Road - for a nature project.
George has been taking pictures since he was two.
"I like taking all kinds of pictures," he said. "When I grow up I want to run a hotel with its own art gallery."
The competition was judged by Examiner editor Roy Wright, chief photographer Julian Hughes and managing director of Worthington's Photoxpress Neil Worthington.
They had a difficult task in choosing the winners from many scores of photographs.
