Lowestoft teenager secures a hat trick with stunning holiday snap
PUBLISHED: 12:00 30 July 2015
An idyllic landscape has proved to be picture perfect for one keen amateur photographer.
This stunning shot was captured by Shay Jordan during a holiday to Bangkok in Thailand – and it has secured the talented teenager a third win in our popular Picture of the Week competition.
The delighted Benjamin Britten High School student said: “This picture was taken on my trip to Bangkok last April, during the Thai festival of Songkran, and I visited Lumpini Park to see the Thai people practising Tai Chi there.
“Being a keen martial artist, and a second degree black belt in Kuk Sool Won, I was looking forward to seeing this. However, we didn’t see any Tai Chi when we were there because the park had been taken over by peaceful anti-government protesters, who can be seen very faintly below the trees in the photo.”
As our winner, Shay receives a 12in x 10in framed version of his photo, worth more than £60, from Picture Studios, of London Road North, Lowestoft.
By progressing to our next six-monthly winners’ final, he is also in with a shout of winning the top prize – a 12in x 18in photo block, worth £130. Entries can be of any subject, but they must be by amateur photographers and we prefer digital images. We also accept prints but we can’t guarantee their return.
