Congratulations to Chris Goddard, of Newport, winner of our 2012  Wildlife Photography Competition. Chris works full time as a ranger at Newport Council, but his photography skills are of a superb quality.

Chris won after a very tough competition, with increasing numbers of extremely high quality entrants each year.

Chris studied Environmental Science at Bristol University, this led to a day job which allowed him to exercise his skills out on the local reserves and across Wales on weekends away.

The winning photograph is of Afon Conwy, in north Wales. The autumn colours and the movement of the water give this photography life and vibrancy.

Congratulations to Chris and well done to all our other entrants, it was a difficult decision by the judges. We look forward to even more tough decisions in our 2013 competition!
