Summer section winner announced

“Enjoying Nature’s Light Show”.

As the number of entries for our Summer Photo competition went into the hundreds, we knew we were going to have a tough time selecting a winner.

Celebrity Judge Gray Levett, of the prestigious ‘Grays of Westminster’ Nikon specialists, was also impressed with the quality of entries, and with good reason.

We ask all entrants to take a bow. We knew that Balconette customers have good taste, but you have done us proud.

The winner – Christopher Davis

Gray commented on the four finalists:

“Four excellent images. They all convey the advantages of having a Balconette product but I feel that Christopher Davis’ picture with its sweeping panorama of the countryside makes you want to own one oneself. Great image well composed and executed.”

Christopher receives our first segment award for the best summer photo, and an exhibition size print framed in a Royal Chrome identical finish to match his Balconette Aerofoil Balustrade.

Daniel Young

Mr. Levett also asked for 2 runners-up to receive Special Commendations: “Daniel Young’s coastal castle subject is also good and ties in second for me, with Robin Lawson’s impressive sunset and the two wine glasses signalling a reflective evening ahead enjoying Nature’s light show.”

As we move into Autumn, we’re hoping you will be inspired to capture some more special images that show how our balconies help you to make the most of your view.

Whether you’re a year-round swimmer or a warm-weather dipper-inner, keeping your outside pool or hot-tub at its best and safest is an ongoing commitment. Investing in quality pool fencing gives you peace of mind but can detract from the beauty of your pool and garden. Install pool glass fencing however, and you’ll avoid many of the problems associated with other pool enclosures.
