Held for the second time at Hebden Bridge Town Hall, Hebden Bridge Camera Club’s 2014 exhibition showcased 60 prints along with a selection of digital images from the club’s 40 members and was again very successful with a constant stream of visitors over eight days.
Opened by the Mayor of Hebden Royd Coun Jonathan Timbers, each year the club asks visitors to vote for their top three prints and this year exceeded all expectations with 1120 voting slips completed.
Coun Timbers said: “Hebden Bridge Camera Club has put on another strong exhibition this year.
“The club has given pleasure to enthusiastic amateurs as well as nurtured some extraordinary talents. There are some striking photos of the area, but also images from around the world.”
The print receiving the highest voting score was ‘Frosty Morn’ by Philip Dean, a stunning winter scene taken at Clough Foot, Cragg Vale.
Second place went to Jim Strom with his ‘Juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker’, taken in Heptonstall.
Third place went to Simon Garvey with his ‘Sunrise and Moonset’, taken at Lone Pine, California.
The club thanks all who voted and the Town Hall Association for hosting the exhibition.
The new 2015 Hebden Bridge Calendar, showing local scenes (including ‘Frosty Morn’) all taken by club members is available, priced £4.99, from local retailers as well as the Tourist Information Centre and Post Office in Hebden Bridge.
The club meets from September to April on Wednesday evenings at the Masonic Hall, Hangingroyd Lane, Hebden Bridge at 7.45 p.m.
New members are always welcome to the club, and will receive a warm reception.
