A STUNNING image of a Carabooda lime kiln has been recognised in the City of Wanneroo’s annual photography competition.

The competition ran via Instagram the first time and received nearly 1000 entries, with people using the DiscoverWanneroo2017 hashtag to upload images that were unique to the City.

Danny O’Loghlen, of Butler, won the open category for his lime kiln photo, while Duncraig 15-year-old Georgia Russell’s image of a girl walking along the beach at sunset was judged the best youth entry and Mayor Tracey Roberts awarded Mindarie’s Benn Tudor the Mayor’s Choice for his beautiful ocean photo.

Eight photographers were recognised overall and Mrs Roberts praised all the competition entries.

“I am so pleased with the diversity and quality of the photographs – it truly shows residents, and visitors to the City, are enthralled by what they see,” she said.

“This year’s photographs were exceptional in capturing the essence of our City, with an array of photographs showcasing our parks, beaches, heritage buildings, wildlife, food… and even our train stations.”

The winning photographs are on display at Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre until the end of June.
