Inntravel – My Slow Moment Photography Competition 2018
“A Slow Moment is something you discover when you take your time to immerse yourself in your surroundings, look a little closer and linger a little longer.”
My image of ‘Fisherman’ photographed on the river at Moret-sur-Loing in France was runner up in the 2018 photographic competition. A second image ‘Frozen River’ taken in Sweden was Highly Commended.
The competition was judged by widely acclaimed writer Carl Honoré – author of the international best seller In Praise of Slow
at the Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton, North Yorkshire where there was also an exhibition of the winning entries.
Of my image 'Fisherman' Carl Honoré said "There's something deliciously painterly about this shot. It reminds me of certain impressionist works, despite the sharpness of the image. The scene itself is so bucolic and unhurried you can almost feel the photographer slipping into the same slow groove. It's a gentle, soothing hymn to quieter, simpler times. I want to be bobbing along on that boat wondering if a fish is about to nibble on my line."
My congratulations to the winner Alan Harris whose winning image of Ubein Bridge Sunset photographed at Myanmar, Mandalay has won him an Inntravel walking holiday on the shores of Lake Constance.
