Many thanks to everyone who entered photos, and to voters, both online and at the Christmas Lunch, who spent time selecting the winning photos.  Without all of these there wouldn’t be a competition.

Whether you were an entrant, a voter, or simply enjoyed looking at the photos I’m sure you appreciated the competition and hope that you have been inspired to enter photos in next year's competition, which will be starting early in 2020.
