FRIDAY PHOTOS: Stuart Lawton

Have your say

Atmospheric sunsets and garden visitors are among the sights in this week’s Friday Photos, courtesy of reader Stuart Lawton.

WE’VE had a great response to our request for reader’s photos, and first to be showcased is Stuart Lawton, from High Barnes.

 He sent in a great selection of shots featuring some well-known local sights and curious garden visitors.

 Stuart, 40, has been taking photographs for the past 15 years with point-and-shoot cameras, but has been using a digital SLR for the past two years. His interests include landscape, nature, still-life and action photography.

 Many thanks to Stuart for taking part in Friday Photos – would you like to follow in his footsteps and see your work on these pages?

 We’re looking for photos on any style or theme, and photographers of any age or level of experience. Maybe you’re a photography student who would like to get some exposure or an experienced snapper looking for a wider audience? Whatever your story, we’d love to see your work.

 If you’d like to take part in Friday Photos, see the information at the bottom of the page, and in the coming weeks it could be your images on these pages.
