A stunning photograph of a bridge over floodwater near Walgett has been selected as the winner of federal Nationals MP for Parkes Mark Coulton’s 2022 Christmas Card Photo Competition.
Mr Coulton said the image from Walgett photographer George Williams, entitled ‘Bridge Over Troubled Waters’, captures the old Two Mile Creek Rail Bridge at sunset, with the colours of the sky reflected in the water below.
“I have been overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of entries to this competition, with so many incredible photos highlighting just how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world,” Mr Coulton said.
“Due to the high quality of the finalists, I have decided to make a collage on the inside of my Christmas card with each of these photos – they were all too good not to include somehow.”
Mr Coulton said his annual Christmas card and fridge magnet calendar will be delivered to every household in the Parkes electorate during the first week of December.
