Wrekin Picnic by Mathew Bishop

Mathew, aged 17, of Telford is a student. He took this picture with an Olympus E-300 Digital SLR Camera.

My interest in photography stems from a desire to capture a moment in time and I work to the motto that a picture is worth a thousand words. I take pictures in a great variety of places as I take my camera with me every day. I have only recently taken up photography as a hobby within the last three months and have recently enrolled on a photography course at college.

Shropshire Lane by Sue Wheeler

Sue, 46, lives at Aston on Clun and is a food safety officer working for Shropshire Council. Shropshire Lane was taken at Rowton, near Aston on Clun in September using a Canon Power Shot G10.

Ive been taking photos since I was about eight years old. I enjoy taking photos of our surrounding environment, both in the country and the town, close-ups of flowers, my two cats and day trips and holidays. I particularly enjoy taking photos in Shropshire because of the beautiful and varied unspoilt countryside that changes throughout the seasons and the variety of light conditions.

View from Atcham Bridgeby John Oates

John lives in Cressage, Shrewsbury. He bought his Sony Alpha digital SLR camera when he retired 18 months ago and took this picture of Atcham in the spring time.

I am self taught and like taking pictures of steam railways and scenes around Shropshire.

The Geese of Ellesmereby Jane Carlyle

Jane lives in Shawbury near Shrewsbury and is a professional photographer taking pictures of children in fairy costumes (

Her five-year-old daughter also loves photography and comes up
with some great shots. Jane uses a Canon 50D.

I love to take photos of children and animals as I am never quite sure what will happen which often leads to the best, most natural shots. I also love to experiment with slowing down movement for great effects.

The picture of the month is Mathew Bishops Wrekin Picnic which wins a PURE ONE mini white portable digital radio worth 50. Get more with digital radio in the Shropshire area with stations such as Smooth for all your favourite hits that have inspired generations.
