At half time 8 of our 10 images had been held back for consideration for top scores, but it wasn’t enough; Holmes Chapel won by 3 marks.

Someone remarked that Crewe and Leek appear on the trophy more times than anyone else but it wasn’t to be this year, Leek trailed us by 10 marks. Holmes Chapel had some excellent landscapes and all their images scored well.

Our marks were:

Howzat by Ray Hill 18, Venetian Blizzard by Peter Robinson 19, The Gumshoe by Dolores Williams 19, My Giddy Aunt 18, Roosting Common Blue Butterfly by Paul Hill 18, Official Photographer by Bob Brown 16, Lioness with Warthog 20, The Look by Dave Barton 18, Hyena and Cub 19, Snowdon Waterfall by Paul Hill 15
