Bird images help cam­era club swoop to suc­cess

Macclesfield Express - - WORLD BOOK DAY - RHI­AN­NON MCDOWALL

THESE pow­er­ful pic­tures of a great grey owl and African fish ea­gle have earned plau­dits for town pho­tog­ra­phers.

The im­pres­sive pic­tures, cap­tured by Steve Gresty and Conor Mol­loy, are just two of many sub­mit­ted to the Lan­cashire and Cheshire Pho­to­graphic Union’s an­nual com­pe­ti­tion by mem­bers of Mac­cles­field Cam­era Club.

The club as a whole fin­ished sev­enth out of 44 clubs which en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion, held at Low­ton.

Club pres­i­dent Conor Mol­loy said a con­sis­tently good set of colour, mono­chrome and na­ture images helped the club fin­ish high up the ta­ble.

He said: “Our club con­tin­ues to go from strength to strength, the mem­bers are pro­duc­ing ex­cel­lent qual­ity work that stacks up well with what is on of­fer in our re­gion.

“Our aim is to keep im­prov­ing our po­si­tion in the years to come and at­tract even more pho­tog­ra­phers from around Mac­cles­field”.

The club meets on Mon- day nights from 8pm un­til 10pm up­stairs at Mac­cles­field Li­brary.
