For this week’s picture I thought I would showcase one of my favourite images taken in the last 12 months.

From over 1,100 stories I have photographed and the thousands of images taken this is one that stood out.

Taken at the Bucks County Show back in August it was one of those shots that is unposed and really captures the essence of the day.

It was a fellow photographer who spotted them, I turned around, fired a couple of frames and that was it, we were spotted, the moment had passed.

Although originally taken in colour I decided to convert this image into black and white, inspired by a similar photograph I saw from a wedding.

I knew this would work perfectly for this image.
