Claps for Snaps

TWO stunning photos by local photographers have shared top honours at the annual Bell Tower photographic competition.

Palmyra’s Tracey Killen won the judges’ award for her image Puddles, taken as she shivered in the rain to get the perfect shot of the gleaming Bell Tower and its slick backdrop.

Beeliar photographer Taylor Yates, 15, won the youth category.  He’s been taking photos since he was a young kid, borrowing his dad’s camera to experiment.

He got his own first camera two years ago, and usually takes candid shots of people.

His image Within Perspective, taken at the foot of the tower, was the first photo he’d entered into a competition.

Northern suburbs snapper Christian Mueller was also in the top three for his photo A Space for New and Old.

Grown-ups won a $1200 camera package and the youth category gong comes with a $739 Powershot G9X Mark II camera.
