October 2016

The competition subject for the October meeting of the Stamford Photographic Society was ‘Sporting Life’ and submissions included cricket, horse jumping, triathlon, mud running and cycling.

David Townshend won both the individual and group competitions with his images of the preparation and racing at the Peterborough Rowing Regatta.
