Camden Council Celebrates Picture Perfection
Camden Council recently celebrated picture perfection last month, announcing the winners of this year’s Macarthur Nature Photography Competition.
There were 24 winners and 23 highly commended entrants recognised across the seven categories at the annual award ceremony, held at Camden Civic Centre.
Harrington Park resident, Ian Hollis, took out the ‘Landscapes of Macarthur’ category.
“I am a full-time university student, so photography is a hobby of mine” Mr Hollis said.
“Winning was such a great feeling. I really enjoyed seeing everyone else’s images and meeting new like-minded people from the area.
“I captured the winning image during an intense lightning storm as it rolled over the region. Soaking wet and freezing cold, I watched the epic bolts getting closer and closer to the Harrington Park Lake, where I was shooting. I had to leave before they hit for obvious safety reasons, but that shot is special to me as I was able to capture my home in a unique image”.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said that residents were able to admire the entries at Narellan Town Centre, who was this year’s major sponsor.
“Each entry was on display for 10 days, right near the Centre Management’s office” Cr Fedeli said.
“I am always in awe of the photos submitted as part of this competition, which we run in partnership with Campbelltown and Wollondilly Councils. The talent right across the Macarthur region is just phenomenal and our natural landscape is just so beautiful”.
