Our customer Graeme Jones in the High Weald has won £1000 and a bottle of bubbly for his winning entry in our 2021 photographic competition.
Graeme’s winning entry, now featured in the regional press, shows a fiery summer sunset from his balcony, with the hills of the Weald in the distance. It beat off strong competition from more than 500 other entrants, all tasked with showing the benefits of a modern glass balcony. Entries came from all corners of the British Isles and our Judges were highly impressed with their photographic skill and appreciation for natural beauty.
Graeme’s glass balustrade was installed by Balconette’s Registered Installer Timbertech Southern Ltd. He took the photo on the spur of the moment: “I usually like to walk around the garden each evening if I can and I stepped out of the back door shortly after a rainstorm had passed to see the amazing sunset. I had my mobile with me and I simply stood back and took the picture, it wasn’t composed in any way, it was just as I saw it.
“A few friends said they thought it was a good photograph and then I had an email come through from Balconette which mentioned their competition. So I thought ‘nothing to lose’ and it was easy to enter”.
On behalf of Balconette, Alistair Gilles presented Graeme with his prize: “We love to help homeowners create their own space. We thought Graeme had used his balcony area to enhance the view and managed to express this in his photo”.
