Somerset's Changing Landscape - Photography Competition - here's our winner

 In 2018 we teamed up with the County Gazette to run a photographic competition on the theme of Somerset's Changing Landscape.  The last 50 years have seen enormous changes in the way we all live our lives but we still cherish our unique and varied Somerset landscapes.  We have had some great entries and it is fascinating to see how your images explore and illustrate Somerset's Changing Landscape.  Some of our favoirites are below.
