Intermediate Cup 2014

This year's Intermediate Cup had the subject "Reflections". The competition was judged by competition sponsor Jim Rowell with help from Dave Cook. Jim and Dave announced the top three winning places, along with two more photos that were just outside the winning positions.
Some great photos were produced for the competition. First place was a fabulous photo of a young child's wellies reflected in a puddle, taken by Stuart March. Stuart also had one of the two "highly commended"!
Second place was taken by Barry Stone, with third going to Mike Hignell.
Well done to all who took part in what was a particularly strong Intermediate Cup.
