Club Photography Competition-13/10/2016

13/10/2016:
We held our very first Club Photography Competition tonight at the Aberdour in Dumfries.

Thank you to all members who entered photographs for the Competition, and to all who came along on the night.

Gordon Rae, Gordon Rae Photography and multi award winning wildlife photographer, very kindly judged the entries and entertained us with an interesting and knowledgeable presentation. His stunning selection of wildlife photographs included birds and squirrels in our local area, Pine Martens and mountain hares in the Highlands of Scotland, and grizzly bears in Alaska. A big thank you to Gordon for a super evening.

Many thanks to Gordon for judging the competition.
