Shire Cruisers Photographic Competition 2014
2014 brought us a superb collection of entries. Here are the winners and runners up. A number of entrants also very kindly did us a blog, which tells us (some of...) what customers really do. I've put links to them.
Enter the 2015 competition - and maybe win £50! Can you do us a front cover for the brochure (landscape format)?

About the judge
James Laws is a professional
lighting designer, based in Suffolk. He specialises in landscape and
performance photography. He has known Shire Cruisers for many years,
as he is the elder brother of Susan Stevens. One of his pictures is
on the right.
"This year's pictures showed the widest variety of waterways and countryside or townscape. Charlotte Smith was the winner because of the way the image shows the sheer pleasure of a peaceful canal holiday. The geese were well-positioned too!
We are awarding a special portfolio prize to Brian Shaw. An enormous number of well-taken images showed the progress of a party in two boats and their great enjoyment of the whole adventure.
The runners up show the canals in rain, sunshine and morning mist.
Next year it would be good to see some more pictures of holidaymakers. Cath Locke and Steph Green clearly had a good time. Over to you!"
The winner is:
Charlotte came with her family in September. Here they are just above Old Royd Lock No. 17.
