Hygge – Scandinavian for cosy

The nights draw in and invite you to cosy down, to nest and to nurture.

 
Your home becomes your retreat as you enjoy the ambient glow of candle light, the aroma of wood burning, and the comfort of being wrapped in your favourite knit with your mug of choice in hand.

 
It is a time for intimate gatherings with loved ones and adding those festive accents that twinkle and evoke childhood memories and wonder.

 
Above all it is a time for counting your blessings, taking in the detail and making time to just “be”

**ANNOUNCEMENT* * THE WINNER OF THE “OUT & ABOUT” PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

**ANNOUNCEMENT* *  THE WINNER OF THE “OUT & ABOUT” PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION
 As you may know, to celebrate the current Arteria Gallery exhibition “OUT & ABOUT” we collaborated with Carnforth Train Station Heritage Centre to launch an on line photography competition.
 
The response has been an impressive mix of local images capturing all that we love about being where we are on the map!
 
Local photographer Nick Dagger had the very difficult task of selecting one of the shots and so we are delighted to announce that the winning photograph is:-
 
BRIAN McCABE – “AUTUMN SUNLIGHT – BEECH WOOD, TUNSTALL”
 
Judge Nick Dagger explained how he felt about the winning piece:
 
“A beautiful, technically well handled photo. The stunning warm autumnal tones and splashes of light along the floor leading up to the gate are very inviting indeed. The low defused sunlight really adds to the atmosphere of the image. It makes me want to be there, seeing the leaves fall from the trees and feel the crunch underfoot while walking towards the gate and see whats on the other side, it makes me want to be out and about!”
 
Please join us in congratulating Brian and all of those who took part in this event
 
Brian will now have his piece printed and framed and presented by our guest judge
 
The “OUT & ABOUT” exhibition at Arteria runs until Saturday October 8th and the virtual gallery produced for the competition can be viewed on either of the links below
