PICTURE GALLERY: Photographers capture nature in competition

The Eastbourne Photographic Society held the John Stanley Memorial Challenge for the best photograph depicting the beauty of nature.

The guest adjudicator, artist and gallery owner Nigel Greaves, set the subject of the challenge a year ago.

The overall winner was Peter Robinson with his magnificent photograph of a panoramic view across unspoilt countryside flanked by a field of poppies.

Chairman Martin Heaps said this was one of the society’s most important competitions and members think they made it quite difficult for Nigel to choose just one photograph.
