Local photographer named winner of competition

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

The winner of the Fife Coastal Path guidebook photograph competition has been announced.

Despite stiff contest from 40 other photographers and over 200 shots, David Anderson of Elie, was named winner of the Fife Coast and Countryside Trust organised competition.

Fife Coast and Countryside Trust – the region’s leading environmental charity responsible for managing and conserving Fife’s countryside – will be launching a guidebook to the Fife Coastal Path later this year and David’s winning photo will feature on the front cover.

The Fife Coastal Path book, supported by a donation from the Mary Leishman Foundation, will be the official guide to the Path – full of information on each section, including local history and what to see and do along the route - and will give David’s work widespread national exposure.

The Fife Coastal Path is the country’s oldest and most popular coastal walk and helps contribute to Fife’s position as Scotland’s number one destination for outdoor tourism.

David took the chosen photo at Earlsferry during a walk from Lower Largo in July. He said: “I have been interested in photography for a number of years and have a particular interest in rural and countryside matters, in part developed as a former university lecturer in Geography. “The Fife Coastal Path is one of my favourite destinations for taking photos and, when I found out about the competition for the guidebook, I was really excited to put forward some of the images I’ve managed to capture.

“I feel privileged that Fife Coast and Countryside Trust chose my photo and the panorama of the Coastal Path it captures, and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”

Amanda McFarlane said: “We were delighted with the amount of interest the competition generated, and choosing a winner was extremely difficult. Congratulations to David on his winning photograph.

“We look forward to the release of the guidebook and hope it and David’s work inspire people to explore and photograph all of the sights that can be experienced along the walk.

"We are also very grateful to the Mary Leishman Foundation for its support in helping us produce this official guide.”

The Fife Coastal Path currently stretches from Kincardine in the South West of Fife to the Tay Bridge, with an extension to the region’s northern boundary at Newburgh soon to be launched.

The Path features unique geological, archaeological, military, religious, industrial and architectural sites that make up Fife’s heritage.
