Congratulations to Dries Fourie from Vereeniging Photographic Society!
He is our January winner with his image “Pure Bull Power”
A harvest festival in the USA is an annual celebration that occurs around the time of the main harvest of a given region. It typically features feasting with foods that are drawn from crops that come to maturity around the time of the festival. Eating, contests and music are common features.
I took this picture at the New Hampshire Festival, the ‘Ox team pulling contest’. I had to work my way right into the arena and was a couple of meters away from the oxen. The track officials removed me from there but it was fine, my pictures were already taken!
Our 1st runner-up is Martin Barber from Southern Suburbs Camera Club with his image “Raining at the station”
Our 2nd runner-up is Koot Marais from Bloemfontein Kameraklub with his image “Lost in my dreams”
Thank you to the judges. They were:
Kim Stevens – Cape Town Photographic Society
Johann van der Walt – Sandton Photographic Society
Charlaine Gerber – Witbank Photo Club
