HAROLD Wilson looks happy enough in the colourful St George’s Square at twilight after all the controversy over the much-delayed revamp.
Student photographer David Hoare took this image of the new look square late in October shortly after it had been officially opened.
David, of Marsh, said: “I think the mixture of lighting at this time of day shows the new features of the square at their best.
“Harold Wilson remains a well-lit central feature, plus a lot of young people have discovered a new water park.”
He used his Nikon D300 camera to take the photograph, set at 17mm, f4, 1/20second.
He had visited the square during the day and thought it looked a bit grey and uninspiring.
But, he said, at twilight the light offered photographers around 20 minutes of awe-inspiring light.
“I can imagine the square being very functional but from a photographic point of view I wasn’t all that inspired during the day,” said David, who is an Open College of Arts student.
“But at twilight when the light changed and we got all the artificial lighting coming on it became an interesting place from a photographic point of view.
“I was fascinated at the way children were drawn to the lights.”
The Examiner is always keen to celebrate the town’s achievements, its spirit, its people and its places.
