As Ian had visited the area over the years on three occasions, he had been able to capture the natural wonders in different seasons.

The cream of the club’s latest pictures was selected by Jane Coltman when she judged the first projected image competition of the 2017-18 season.

The results were as follows.

Landscape: 1 Colin Smurthwaite, 2 Chris Jary, 3 Ian Cartwright.
