Photo Task: 23rd March to 23rd April

Spring is in the Air

Note the slight change of rules and duration for this photo task that Eamon O’Daly of The Outdoor Studio (www.outdoorstudio.ie) has kindly offered to judge for us. There is a limit of three images, instead of the usual seven, and they should be high resolution images. Please don’t send any photos to the usual email address as they will be too large and might not be received. Joe will advise nearer the date how to submit the images.

Wishing everyone a good eye, imagination, skills old and new plus plenty of fun and cunning.
