Have your say

YOUNG people from across Havant and Chichester have been clicking away as they photograph a beauty spot.

Nearly 100 students have visited Chichester Harbour on field trips to learn more about photography.

Students from Warblington School, Front Lawn School, and Chichester High School for Girls spent time at Dell Quay accompanied by professional photographer Paul Gonella.

Close-up detail of plants, boats and textures were explored, as were wider landscape views.

Mr Gonella said: ‘Working with the schools has been good fun.

‘I was amazed at how good their photos were.

‘Chichester Harbour is a fantastic place to practise photography with so many options in just one small area.’

The trips, hosted by Chichester Harbour Conservancy, are being held as part of the Year of Photos project.

Since April 1, the conservancy have been collecting a photo of the harbour each day which will continue until the end of March 2013.

All the photos are being collected into an online gallery to show the changing seasons.
