The competition is in two sections for Printed Images and Digitally Projected Images. There were some stunning images on display in both sections. Printed images which Ralph awarded the maximum 20 points were Leslie Holmes’ On The Move and René Cason’s Common Blue. Coming close behind with 19 points was Leslie’s Impala in a downpour.

It was an entertaining evening with lots of helpful comment and advice from Ralph, giving the club members the benefit of his many years experience of wildlife and nature photography.
