2012 Memorial Trophy – Congratulations to Inn Focus

Well done to Inn Focus for winning the 2012 Memorial Trophy. Here are the full results. Many thanks to Llanelli Photographic Society for doing such a great job of hosting the event. The venue was excellent and the event was very well organised. The judge was Nick Scott FRPS, MPAGB, AFIAP who was ably assisted (and sometimes hurried along ) by his partner, Vanessa Vanessa Slawson FRPS. Thanks also go to David Paskin, Hon. Secretary WPF, Roy Thomas, WPF and especially to Les Loosemore for arranging the event. Pat Reynolds presented the Trophy to Inn Focus.

Heidi has a website!

Hot on the heels of husband Alec, Heidi Stewart is the latest Gwynfa member to open a website. It is full of her lovely photographs so why not pop along and have a look (and maybe leave a comment on her blog). Like Alec, Heidi used the free software available from weebly.com to create the site.

Alec Stewart has a new Website

Alec Stewart AWPF of Gwynfa Camera Club has a new website. Alec says “For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for the natural world. To this day I am constantly amazed at the diversity and beauty that surrounds us every day. A walk along a canal towpath or through woodland becomes an exploration to seek out the fascinating and varied plant and animal life existing in these habitats”.
