SLIDESHOW: Colourful scenes from Mike

MIKE Wilkinson is a dab hand at capturing colourful scenes of the North-East.

The 29-year-old, who has lived in Hartlepool all his life, and currently works for the Expanded Metal Company, has sent us this great selection of atmospheric images.

Mike studied photography at college and university. He has set up a Facebook page of his work. He said: “I am primarily a landscape photographer, but also do portraits and weddings.”

His selection of images provided to us includes scenes of Durham and Penshaw Monument.

We would love to hear from more people willing to have their work published.
