Wheely Good Winner “Shocked” to take winning shot

Wheely Good Winner “Shocked” to take winning shot

The winner of Mansfield 103.2s ‘Wheely Good Pic’ competition says she is “shocked” to have taken the winning photograph, picked by our partners at Rainworth Skoda.

62 Year Old Carol Russell from Blidworth captured the shot, which showed Tour Of Britain riders deep in conversation whilst tackling an incline, with the local setting in the backdrop.

Carol, who only took up photography as a hobby after her retirement a year ago, said “As a budding photographer I saw the Tour of Britain as a good opportunity to practise my shutter speed, it [The competition] was a challenge just to show myself that I can produce a good photograph.”

Carol is now the proud owner of a framed Team Skoda Jersey, signed by Sir Bradley Wiggins – something she says will be hung proudly alongside her winning photo in her and her husband’s new home bar, with the photo in pride of place when entertaining guests.

“It’s just a great hobby to do, just get out there and do it! When you’re out with your camera, even though you are on your own, you’re never along because there is always someone, coming and asking you what you’re taking pictures of and asking to see them! It’s a really good way to make a lot of friends”

Congratulations to Carol on behalf of all here at Mansfield 103.2 and at our Partners at Rainworth Skoda.
