Ann Killeen has photographs selected for WIRES and Hygain calendars

Ann Killeen admits she knows nothing about aperture and is yet to read the instruction manual for her Cannon camera.

But Rutherglen’s self-confessed “happy snapper” has proven she has a natural eye for a fantastic photograph.

If the hundreds of likes and comments on her Rutherglen Four Seasons Facebook page wasn’t testament to the popularity of Killeen’s photographs, several of them have now been snapped up for 2017 calendars.

Wildlife rescue organisation WIRES selected two shots for its calendar – one of a wet kangaroo in a canola crop (pictured) and the second of a kingfisher with its morning catch. 

Two more pictures will also feature in a national equine calendar.
