Herewith the results of the photographic competition that took place during the weekend that the Cape Town Photographic Society spent in Stanford in celebration of their 125th anniversary.
Richard Goldschmidt’s photograph of the Kleinrivier is a great shot of one, if not THE gem, of Stanford’s tourist assets. The magical weaving of water, sky and mountains makes for a worthy winner. Richard’s prize is two nights for 6 at Eagleyes Guest House.
Pat Scott’s entry of 5 (or 6, or 7?) different birds in one photograph illustrates the richness of Stanford’s Avian bounty. She wins the wonderful book Portrait of a Village by Stanford’s own Annalize Mouton. Hopefully its contents will draw Pat back to Stanford in due course.
The third prize goes to Kim Stevens for her a lovely study of lines taken of the Mosaic Farm Jetty. A case of Stanford Wineries best will I am sure help cement an ongoing relation between Stanford & Kim.
The weekend was enjoyed by all by all the photographers. Amongst many highlights, they were treated to a preview of local birdlife photographer Richard Masson’s soon to be released book, “A hundred Birds in my Stanford garden”. This book is a wonderful example of birding Stanford style and is an invitation to all birders to visit our area to see the ± 150 other species recorded in our area.
Eagleyes are putting together a special weekend to host at least four teams of four to enter S A Birdings big day on 27th November 2015. More on this later.
