The judge for this year's special evening was the eminent photographer and film maker, Alan Colgrave. Judging the prints first, Alan found that most prints could qualify, so had some difficulty in singling out the six best, of which 3 were placed and 3 highly commended. The overall winner was David Sherwood, with an atmospheric morning woodland scene. In the projected image category, Alan again narrowed it down to 6 images, with the winner emerging as Janet Marshall with a dramatic view of lindisfarne Island, showing the famous upturned boat-cum-shed.
Alan proved to be an excellent and entertaining judge, so hopefully he will be returning to the club at some point, perhaps with one of his superb talks. Entries were a little lower than expected, but the holiday season has now started, resulting in several members' absences.
The season is now almost complete apart from the AGM and trophy presentation evening, we look forward to a good season again starting in September.
