“At times the Black Forest takes on an ethereal quality, the sunlight penetrating deep into its heart and lighting the underside of its leaves like paper lanterns.”
WIN A HOLIDAY-CUM-PHOTOGRAPHIC-ASSIGNMENT and discover the mystical beauty of south-west Germany’s woodland wonderland on a memorable Walk in the Black Forest*.
What’s more, for the duration of the competition (April to October 2016) we’ll be giving away a £200 Inntravel voucher every month for the best Photo of the Month.
To enter the competition we’d like you to share your own favourite Slow Moment, captured in an evocative image (between 2MB and 10MB) and described in no more than 40 words. Your Slow Moment could be from a recent holiday or simply from your explorations round about where you live – it’s about capturing a special memory while taking the Slow Lane.
The Slow Lane is about getting off the beaten track, taking your time, really getting under the skin of a place to discover its true nature.
A Slow Moment is a specific discovery – the emotion it evokes and the memory it makes. Your photo could depict flora or fauna, an evocative view, local traditions, or something else that made you stop in your tracks to look.
We will regularly update our Moments Galleries throughout the competition, showing the winning and shortlisted entries for previous months, and posting a selection (not a shortlist) of entries for the current month’s competition.
The seven winners (along with any exceptional runners-up from each month) will then be entered into the ‘Grand Final’ towards the end of the year, and will go on display at the Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton, Yorkshire, in January 2017 (watch this website for more details nearer the time).
From these, one overall winner will win a photographic assignment on which they will embark on A Walk in the Black Forest* with a companion, exploring this extraordinarily beautiful woodland and its picture-postcard villages, all the while capturing the special moments on camera for us.
