SLIDESHOW: A flavour of things to come

WE’VE had a great year of photographic contributions from Hartlepool Mail readers and we would love more of the same in 2013.

Here are a selection of some of the great works submitted to us.

Gary Kester provided us with a sculpture display from South Shields while Gordon Dale shared a church scene.

Lauren Marsden submitted a picture from her trip to London while Geoff Todhunter’s quayside shot, on the front of today’s Mail2, shows boats moored in Norfolk.

Harry Brenkley’s photograph is of a winter scene in the Scottish highlands and Malcolm Cook’s is of birdlife in fenland.

Finally Eddie Laidler was happy to share a striking image of frozen plants near Seal Sands.

Would you love to have your work featured in the pages of the Mail?

If so, we would be delighted to hear from you. We want pictures on any theme, whether it’s landscapes or portraits, events or wildlife.

All you have to do is send an email with lots of details about yourself such as your age, name and background on your family, occupation, interests and hobbies – plus a photograph of yourself.

Also, send us nine or ten examples of your photography work and we will make sure you get the publicity your efforts deserve.

So come on you talented lot. Get in touch and let’s show the world just how skilled our local camera men and women are.
