2012 Olympic Flame by Margaret Waterson


We were lucky enough to get tickets go in the athletic stadium for the games
This was taken with a Canon 500d with a 24×105 lens I have enhanced the colours a bit but not much else
I didn’t belong to any photo club at the time, these were just memories of a fabulous games, and the flame was just great===============================8<—————————————-

Ashness Bridge by Steve Bexon

spent a few hours searching through my archives and decided I didn’t have any specific favourites.
so I’ve senr a couple that I like taken a few years ago in the Lake District.
Not my favourite photo but my favourite area for photography
I think I used similar ones in judged comps but not poty rounds.
These two images hadn’t been processed before so must have used slightly different compositions of the same scene.
Ashness Bridge – Taken early morning in October 2013 on a trip to the Lake District.
There are some great photography locations along this road including Surprise View and Watendlath.

Early Morning In India by Roger Leck


The Indian one is one of my favourites as early morning across the river from the Taj Mahal was
so peaceful after the Mass of humanity in other parts of the country.

Gateway To Buttermere by Steve Bexon


During a trip to the lakes in October 2013, I photographed a large number of fences leading down
into the water on my walk around the lake. This was one of my favourites of the day.

Morning On Calpe Beach by Roger Leck


My second choice had to be Morning on Calpe Beach because this particular shot won me a first at the club.

Mount Cook New Zealand by Margaret Waterson


I took this photo from our hotel balcony in the Mount Cook National Park
We couldn’t believe our luck at being given a room facing this view , this was in December 2009
I took the photo with my Canon 500d with a 24×105 lens hand held from the balcony
We have fond memories of this holiday , this being one of the highlights of our tour .

Outback Stockman by Peter Lawrance


was taken on my first visit to where my daughter lived and worked in Australia and this picture captures it all in my mind.
The calf was being rescued and my daughter nursed it back to health. She has now returned there,
ten years on, to manage the station with her fiance.

Postcard From Padstow by Peter Lawrance

Both have personal reasons for being amongst my favourite pictures ever.
I have used one in a POTY before so can replace this if not suitable.
Postcard from Padstow shows a snapshot of the slipway in Padstow Harbour.
I have been going there for nearly sixty years and with a few cosmetic exceptions
it is still the same place as it was all those years ago. There is always something happening.

===============================8<—————————————-
Rocamadour by Alan Cook


This shot is a favourite as it was the first view on arriving at this medieval village in the Dordogne in 2015..
Not the finest of photography but it is the memory that counts.

Thirst Quenching by Alan Cook


water hole at voi lodge Tsavo west Kenya . this is my first safari and to be able to get a shot like this
although not the finest of quality in 1986 this was from a negative home processed and scanned
taken with my Minolta x300 with a £30.00 28mm lens the cost of a safari didn’t leave money for
quality equipment.
