June 2106

The competition subject for the June meeting of the Stamford Photographic Society was the ‘Best Landscape Cup’.  This was an opportunity for members to display large prints of the favourite landscape images. Subjects from around the world included sunsets from Myanmar, Italy and Icelandic mountains.

Gordon Brown won the individual competition with his image of the Nun’s Cross deserted farm house on the Malvern Way in a remote part of Dartmoor.
