New images of Swansea unveiled
They include fresh views of the historic cobbled street Constitution Hill and the marina's Tower Observatory.
The images are entries in a Swansea Council competition and are on show in the foyer of the city's seafront County Hall until June 19.
Competition organiser Spencer Martin said, "The competition attracted many positive and striking images of Swansea with linked quotes that described aspects of the city that are unique. I congratulate all who entered."
This year was the third time the Better Swansea Partnership had called on budding photographers to enter the annual Something Unique about Swansea competition.
This years theme was My Community, the top entrants getting a digital camera from competition sponsors John Lacey of Swansea Camera Centre, College Street.
Some entries will be published in Swansea's Community Plan, bringing together the work of key organisations within Swansea and providing a long-term focus for how services will be delivered under the themes of community safety, prosperity, learning, the environment and health and wellbeing.
This year's top entrants included Geoffrey Akhurst, of Clase, Swansea, with a view of the steep Constitution Hill, captioned: "Swansea has a great variety of views. This shows how well the city cares for its heritage as well as its residents. And a good way to keep fit too!"
Commended shots included a marina view by Elaine Reed, of Morriston. It was captioned: "The Tower Observatory is truly magnificent, even in the daytime."
Other Swansea photographers in the top places included Robert Stanley Hardwick, of Clase, Leighton Wilkins, of Landore, and Royston Kneath, of Mount Pleasant.
John Davies, of Mayals, took first prize with this image of the River Tawe. He captioned it: " SA1, the birthplace of new Swansea. For technology and tourism and a new and better future for us all."
The Something Unique about Swansea exhibition, in the foyer of the city's County Hall, is on show Mon 8.30am-5pm, Fri 8.30am-4.30pm until June 19. Details: 01792 636734.
