As always the summer provides lots of opportunities to take pictures: with shows – both agricultural and air shows represented on the club Flickr group; events like the 1940s day at Buckfastleigh or the exercising of the hounds at Lopwell; also the upcoming RHS Rosemoor Flower Show or The Sampford Spiney Sheepdog Trials. Plus the nature opportunities are so abundant with flowers and insects everywhere (I had to stand still while someone photographed a horse fly sat on my shirt!), I can certainly recommend the Devon Wildlife Trust reserve at Meeth Quarry as an insect venue (and not just for the horse flies!). All these are just made for those winning shots for next season, which starts with the “Opening Shots” print competition on September 4th – remember it is just one print per member so we need everyone to contribute, I have even “persuaded” Morag to give me an image to print.

Also please keep posting to Flickr and our Facebook group, it is great to see what people are photographing and it makes “borrowing” your ideas so much easier. If you are reading this blog you can see that Paul has been busy uploading some fresh images to the website (just take a quick look to your right and you will see them scroll by).

We have our pre-season committee meeting on August 27th so if there is anything you want us to think about please contact a committee member.

The WCPF Print competition was judged yesterday, here are our results:

A total of 162 which got us 24th place out of 39 clubs (Launceston got 173 for 7th) a good effort for our first outing. The full results are on the WCPF website at Also the WCPF Exec meeting had an agenda items of “judging standards” prompted by a comment by a TCC member after a particular competition last season, I will feed back the discussion to the person who raised the comment first and provide a general update later.
