WINNING amateur photos from across Wiltshire have been chosen after a summer competition by VisitWiltshire.

The photo competition, sponsored by Castle Cameras, and organised by Newsquest and VisitWiltshire, asked keen amateurs to send in their best snaps from around the county over the summer.

Louisa McRobb, digital and online marketing assistant for VisitWiltshire said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered the competition – there was a fantastic variety of images submitted, from atmospheric landscapes and picturesque towns and villages to iconic attractions and beautiful flora and fauna.

“We are looking forward to featuring as many of the images as possible in our printed publications and on our website, where they will help inspire visitors to discover the beautiful county of Wiltshire.”

Winner Anetta Zalewska, from Westbury, chose White Horse Hill, which is one of her favourite spots.

“For my picture, I made a little sacrifice because I had to get up at 5am,” she said. “It was a horrible time but I wanted to get the sunrise on the hill.

“It’s a beautiful chalk horse and an amazing view from the top. I spend a lot of time up there in the summer and my parents who visit me every year always want to go there with me.

“I work in a factory and every weekend I try to visit any place to take a photo, it’s my big love.

Anetta will use the £300 prize of Castle Camera vouchers to buy a new lens for her camera to turn her passion into a career.

“At the weekend I have wedding shoots, everything I do to make my photography my main job. It’s my dream,” she added.
