WTMC 2013 Photo competition

The Club’s photo competition was very competitive this year. The judge Grant Newton noted that the standard was higher than in previous years and found it difficult to choose a winner in a number of categories. Despite this the results were dominated by Tony Gazley and Spencer Clubb. Tony won three of the categories with his winning hut and camp life image taken on Mt Hector also winning popular approval with the people’s choice award. Spencer got a big cheer when he won the landscape category with a stunning shot of the moon over the Richardson Range; just reward after being runner up in the previous three categories.

Congratulations also to Mike Phethean who won above bushline (and tied for second place in the people’s choice award) with his vertiginous shot of the Huascaran Range, and Rini Sugianto who won the below bushline category with a beautiful image of McKay Falls on the Milford Track.

Many thanks to Grant for judging again and for all who entered.

The winning photographs are published here and will be published on our website in due course.
