Junior Club Competition Winners Aug 2018

Congratulations to Anneke Preto from Southern Suburbs Camera Club

She is our August winner with her image “Top Three”

I took this photo in February at Turffontein racecourse.

I stood looking down from the grandstand as the first race started. I realised immediately that where I stood I would not be able to capture these magnificent thoroughbreds in full gallop. I needed to get much closer to truly capture the bright colours of the jockey’s attire, and the energy, power, determination of the horses themselves.

The the top three horses were running their own race, they had broken away from the pack. It became a race to be the leader, the winner ….. I stood next to the track and felt the thundering hooves as the front runners bore towards me, – in full gallop as I pressed the shutter,……..

The top three, – they were all winners in the end in my photo



Our 1st runner-up is Penny Foynn from Knysna Photographic Society with “Volcanoes at dawn”
