READERS’ PICTURES: From the Bury Free Press of Friday, October 16
This week’s winner of See it, Snap it Send it is Janet Pettitt, from Bury St Edmunds, with this ‘one in a million’ picture.
around the time of the lunar eclipse (although didn’t have the staying power to stay up till 3am) but was taking pictures of the moon the evening before with my new camera and quite frankly was amazed at the quality of the pictures.
“This picture was a one in a million chance – to catch a plane passing the moon at the very moment I took the picture was, of course, more luck than anything else, but the picture, in my opinion, is rather special.
“I was so excited to have captured it. It’s my ‘ET moment’ as it reminded me of the film. My camera, a Canon Powershot SX510 HS, has the most amazing capabilities and I can’t wait to take more pictures with it’.
Other great pictures from this week’s paper were:
-- Ruta Stankeviciene was enjoying a Saturday morning walk through the woods by the cemetery in Mildenhall when she spotted a ring of mushrooms. “That means autumn is here already,” said Ruta.
-- Fourteen-year-old Harry Myhill sent in this picture of a beautiful kingfisher which he took at Lackford Lakes Nature Reserve. He took the photo on his Nikon D5300 camera.
-- This handsome squirrel was photographed in the Abbey Gardens by Glynis Bannister, from Bury St Edmunds. “They are so used to people, and this one came right up to me,” said Glynis.
-- Andrea Gillies, from Bury St Edmunds, sent in this picture of St Mawes Castle, in Cornwall, taken during the summer.
-- This is a picture of The Druid’s Temple at Masham, near Ripon, in North Yorkshire. It was taken and sent in by Jon Kwasnyczka, from Troston.
