GLORIOUS: Dorset photo book competition winner Ian Alcock and his winning image

First published in News by

EARLY starts for a Dorchester photographer to capture a glorious sunrise over Osmington Mills paid off with an award-winning image that is now showcased in a new photographic book.

In April this year, Ian Alcock was named overall winner of this year’s Dorset Echo’s photography competition for his photo. Now the father-of-three is celebrating seeing his winning shot and two other landscape images of Portland showcased in a new glossy book, Dorset: A Photographic Journey in an Olympic Year.

The annual hard-backed publication is better than ever as it also features stunning images of the Olympic and Paralympic sailing events held on Wey-mouth and Portland waters.

Father-of-three Mr Alcock, 48, spent three mornings in a row trying to achieve the sunrise shot.

He said: “I knew exactly when and where the sun was going to rise. It didn’t disappoint and I was ready and waiting for it to rise above the horizon just far enough to cast some light on the small waterfall, before becoming too bright and causing flare.”

Dorset: A Photographic Journey in an Olympic Year, priced at £14.95, is available from the Dorset Echo offices on the Granby Industrial Estate, Wey-mouth and in Antelope Walk, Dorchester and the Bridport News office in East Street.
