Photo Competition - Friday 11th January 2013


Reporter: John Weatherell

With a grand total of 70 entries Club Members sat down to excellent exhibition of Digital Images of Members Snow/Ski holidays.

A viewing prior to Members voting revealed the Photographic talents with a wide variety of subjects, from panoramic landscapes to snow-capped mountains to iced white out conditions to steep and deep off piste.

The voting was very close with a definite winner and a “penalty shootout” for second and third.

A good night was had by all and the Prize Winners will be enjoying the Chocolates and Wine they received in the next few days. Although one “young Lady” was heard to say at the beginning of the night “Don’t let him win or there will be no living with him !!!” which may be true, BUT she did not say NO to the Chocolate Prize he picked up !!
