In Pictures / Parker’s photo of the Drongs wins Highland Challenge

Photo: Peter Parker

LOCAL photographer Peter Parker has scooped first prize at the recent Highland Challenge competition with this stunning photo of the Drongs.

Parker, of Whiteness, said he certainly did not expect to win as the standard of photography at the competition is always very high.

He added: “This is a scene which I and many other photographers have taken previously.

“On this occasion what was especially pleasing is that the light was just right, and I was patient enough to get exactly the photograph I wanted.

“I waited for a bird to be in the frame at the same time that the wave was breaking on the sea stack. This was important to give a sense of scale to the viewer, especially for those who had never seen the Drongs.”

The Highland Challenge is a competition open to all camera clubs in the Highland & Islands region.

Each club submitted ten photographs which were judged this year by John MacPherson, a Highland based well-respected professional photographer.
