    Thank you Ian for posting the link to these wonderful images, they might just might inspire me to have another go at landscapes.

    The winners are all pictures which have novelty; the wide vista of Ullswater with the tiny boat, the eerie castle, the mono tele- view of the transporter bridge and, perhaps the most novel, a view of a landscape through a mirror. Or is it novel? At one time it was the way you were supposed to view a landscape.

    We all take landscapes but few seem appreciated. I gave a landscape my “win” in the comp. I judged last week at Nantwich. I have found out since that it is in their exhibition at the Museum. (I didn’t go before because I felt it might prejudice my judgement). It is the one by Alma Sankey called something like “Three men and their boats” . I judged them as PDIs and she loves using textured paper  and it takes the sparkle off the print a bit but I was really captured by that picture. I could smell the sea and hear it slapping the boat sides, and the wind smacking the sails.
