AN open photography competition hosted by a Black Isle camera club produced plenty of head-turning images to keep a judge busy picking out his top shots.

Cromarty Camera Club, which meets every Thursday in the Victoria Hall, attracted 51 entries for its open digital competition, which was judged by John Ashford from Nairn.

The top images chosen were: 1 Swans Head by Alistair Meldrum; 2 Crowning Glory by Nora Watson; 3 Boat House by Stuart Duncan and 4 Baby Bird by Mairi Macaulay.

The next competition on November 28 is another digital competition on the subject of water to be judged by Owen Cochrane from Inverness.

The club meets every Thursday in the Victoria Hall in Cromarty at 7.30pm. Visitors are welcome to go along.

It is the only camera club on the Black Isle with members are drawn from as far afield as Inverness, Dingwall and Muir of Ord, as well as Fortrose, Avoch, Munlochy and Culbokie.

The syllabus includes monthly training sessions, competitions, members' presentations, and guest speakers. The club has its own equipment including a laptop computer and digital projector to enable it to stay up to date, project images and train members in digital photography.
