THREE picture perfect views of Huddersfield have been chosen as the winners of the Examiner Photograph of the Year competition.
During May and June, The Examiner invited readers to take photographs of views around Huddersfield.
Over 100 entries were sent in, featuring familiar landscapes such as Greenhead Park and seasonal views.
The winning photo was taken by Nigel Keith, of Derwent Road in Meltham. His striking black and white photograph was taken from the Pennine Way at Marsden looking towards Pule Hill, where Mr Keith regularly walks.
He has won £250 of photographic equipment or services, courtesy of Arcade Photos in Imperial Arcade, Huddersfield.
Mrs Allison Challen, of Brecon Avenue in Lindley, won second place of £175 to spend at Arcade.
Her photograph was taken of Nab End between Longwood and Quarmby, where she walks her dog every day.
Third place went to Barry Lockwood, of Reservoir Side Road in Linthwaite. He snapped the winter view of Castle Hill on a frosty morning from Netherton Moor Road, in Netherton.
He has won £75 to spend in Arcade.
All three photographs will be considered for inclusion in the Examiner's 2004 calendar.
"It looked like a good landscape to photograph. I'm shocked to have won."
"If you are going to get a good photo, that's the place. It is lovely there."
"It was frosty and mist was hanging. I thought it would make a good photo."
