    Nature is a fascinating subject brought to live by those who have the time, knowledge and skill give us incites into the world in which we live. Our judge for this year's nature competition will be Sarah Kelman ARPS who is giving a presentation on Nature photography at Hitchin Camera club in November, so hopefully that will give us an incite as to what's going to be well recieved.

    If you'd like to learn more about competitions have a look at the different articles under the Club Competitions menu above. You'll find the definition of Natural History here.

    Don't forget

    We always end the year with a fun event, and the 2018-2019 season will be no exception.

    For this year's end of season finale we'll be having a knockout competition, where each member submits a number of images. The images are shown against each other in pairs and by show of hands the audience votes for which goes through to the next round until ultimately we have a winner!
