Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a paradise for photographers. Endless possibilities abound with seascapes and landscapes, habitats, wildlife, historic buildings and local characters.
In this new project, A Year of Photos, Chichester Harbour Conservancy aims to build a picture of all these elements of the harbour through the seasons. From the balmy days of summer with hundreds of boats bobbing about on the water to the short days of winter when thousands of migratory birds make their home here, Chichester Harbour is a constantly changing landscape.
Everybody is welcome to take part in the project by submitting photos to the Harbour Office. Ali Beckett, Publicity Officer for Chichester Harbour Conservancy said, ‘We want as many people as possible to get involved. Simply email me your photo with details of when and where it was taken and up to three will be added to an online gallery for each day of the year. Don’t worry if you can’t submit it on the day, just send it in at anytime during the project and we can retrospectively post it to the gallery.’
In addition, to celebrate their 25th anniversary the Friends of Chichester Harbour are sponsoring a professional photographer to run photography field trips to Chichester Harbour for local schools. This will help students become more aware of this special area and under the guidance of a professional they will be able to take photographs to add to the project.
A Year of Photos can be viewed online. To submit a photograph, please send it by email to allie(at)conservancy.co.uk along with details of where and when it was taken.
