Image of the Month Winner

April's Theme - Weather

Over 30 images were submitted by our members for this month's theme of 'Weather'. There was a diverse set of interpretations for the theme, covering many types of weather phenomena: lightning, frost, snow, mist and clouds - a bit like a nightmare weather forecast. Of all the photos shown at the meeting the members' favourite was 'Thunder Coming' by Davaid Kallmeier - a stunning contrast of bright flowers against a glowering sky.

Not surprisingly, as the Image of the Month photos had to be taken since the last meeting, there was a Spring theme to some of them. Lambs, blossom and buds all featured. The photo voted as the Image of the Month was David Kallmeier's 'Wolfhamcote' that captured the essence of a Spring day.

Capturing motion in a still photograph appears to be an oxymoron - motion can show as blurring and many photographers go to great lengths to avoid it. But blurring can be used to artistic effect to portray motion in an image, giving it a feel of dynamism.

For May's meeting our members are faced with the challenge of showing motion in whatever way they wish (but not videos - we're a stills-only club).

Check back after next month's meeting (16th May) to see what moving pictures the members produced.
