Keith Stoneman wins the National Association of Retired Police Officers photography competition

Brighter Times Ahead © Keith Stoneman

Congratulations to Keith Stoneman who recently won the National Association of Retired Police Officers (NARPO) photography competition. 
The subject was about reflecting hope for brighter times ahead, after the pandemic, and NARPO members were asked to vote for their favourite. and Keith’s entry won.

Keith said “I took this on Exmoor whilst stood in pouring rain, looking over a valley towards the Bristol Channel near Porlock on the Somerset Coast.  There was a brief interlude of sun and I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time, for once.”

Well done Keith!
