A picture of swans interacting at the edge of a beautiful lake is the winner of the annual South Park Photo Competition.
Jeff Goldberg’s close up snap of four cygnets and a mother swan standing by the water, in South Park Road, Ilford, was the clear winner, according to Recorder staff photographer Ken Mears.
Ken, who judged the competition, said: “I liked the low angle and he has captured them in a lighthearted way looking like they are having a good old chat amongst themselves.”
Runners up were 15-year-old Mary Brant’s “enigmatic shot” of her sister sitting in South Park, and Raheela Sharif’s portrait picture of geese on the lake.
There were 16 entries to the competition, run by the South Park Users’ Group.
Group secretary Tony Hoad thanked “all those people who submitted entries to the competition and to the Recorder newspaper for supporting our community group”.
“The winning entries will be on display in the Group’s Wildlife Centre notice boards in South Park from this weekend.”
