SHOPPERS and visitors have a few days left to soak in the 2020VISION photography exhibition in Swadlincote.

More than 100 wildlife and nature pictures taken across The National Forest and UK by highly skilled photographers are currently on display on The Delph public square.

The inspirational images have been hailed by those who have seen it in a virtual visitor book set up by South Derbyshire District Council.

One said: “It’s brilliant. The quality of the photos is excellent. It prompted my kids to ask questions, which is always good to see.”

Another added: “I wish I had the skill and patience to take photos like those. They are mind blowing. Thanks to the council for bringing them here.”

To ensure the nationally acclaimed snaps are enjoyed by as many as possible, educational trails have been set up for families and youth groups. Free guides can be picked up from Swadlincote Tourist Information Centre or by visiting www.visitnationalforest.co.uk/2020vision.

Co-ordinator Mike Roylance said: “With South Derbyshire the first location in the country to host the whole 2020VISION experience, we are keen that no one misses out on the chance to view this showcase of breathtaking British wildlife.”

The 2020VISION exhibition is on display in The Delph until Sunday before transferring to Calke Abbey in Ticknall from April 10 to April 29.
