Junior Club Competition Winners March 2021

Westville Camera Club Jurgen Huse Holding On

Jürgen Huse from Westville Camera Club is our March winner!

Jürgen, congratulations on your winning image – Holding On


Jürgen says:

I reside in Kloof, Durban. Having a swimming pool with a pump that packed up some time ago, I let mother nature convert it into a wildlife habitat with the most amazing living organisms.

The painted reed frogs were no exception and every evening I would hear their melodious but piercing whistles calling me. One rainy evening in December, the frogs were just clinging onto the creeping foxglove and canary creeper in the most acrobatic comical ways, and I clicked away with my Nikon D500 and vintage Nikon 70-180mm (f 4.5-5.6) d micro lens. Settings were 1/250 sec, F16, ISO 800, focal length 135mm, with flash and assist lighting.


Our 1st runner-up is Jessica Nitschke from Cape Town Photographic Society – The Journey Home
