IMAGE OF 2017
The group held its annual ‘non-competitive competition’ to identify the best image amongst group members taken in 2017. Members submit anonymous printed pictures and then everyone votes. The subject range is wide and the quality of pictures has again improved enormously through 2017.
Congratulations to the WINNER, LINDA WASKETT for her tremendous picture of Sulphur Springs in New Zealand.
