The natural beauty of the Redlands captured by the lens


This year’s IndigiScapes digital photo competition has combined the photographic skills of residents with the natural attractions of the Redlands to beautiful effect.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said this year’s entrants were of a very high quality.

“The amazing wildlife of the Redlands offers potential for that really special photo, and the quality of this year’s entrants was fantastic and showcased the skill of local amateur photographers,” she said.

“This year’s overall winning entrant, Craig Petch captured the natural beauty of the Redlands with a green tree frog perched on a ripe red capsicum.  Craig’s photo also won the Wildlife in your suburbs category.
