The image for January 2020’s digital calendar was taken from the south end of the North Ground/Alhambra Union rugby field by Senior Communications Adviser Mark Hathaway, during a winter walk to work.
Because the Otago Bulletin Board will be taking a break over Christmas and through January we are getting in early and posting January’s digital calendar now.
Our digital calendar, released each month, features the 12 winning and notable entries from the previous year’s Bulletin Board photo competition.
The image for January 2020’s digital calendar was taken by Mark Hathaway, a Senior Communications Adviser and keen amateur photographer, during a winter walk to work.
“This day I remember being quite cold and crisp, and there was plenty of haze in the air,” he says. “I stopped and took a few photos on my camera which is usually in my pocket, and the lowness of the sun helped with the silhouetting of the foreground, and layering of the hills in the background. It wasn’t until I’d taken the shot that I noticed the link between the shape of the radio transmitter and the steeple, which was a nice surprise.”
He named the photo “Steeple Chase”, and it was so captivating that it won the 2019 contest.
