Meeting showcases great images from all over the world

Morpeth Camera Club

On Tuesday, December 9, members were treated to the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) International Images for Screen Exhibition 2014.

The RPS invited entries from the 11,000 worldwide membership and 815 photographers from 51 countries responded, entering 5,035 images in total. From that entry, the exhibition of 488 was selected to view on the night.

IT specialist Mark Harrison presented the stunning pictures – the first selection being from the Open Creative Section.

Creative images of abstract flying machines, skyscrapers through the clouds, mirror images and ethereal images of characters in masks and historical costumes were included in this spectacular selection of photographs.

The Open Traditional section included sharp blue images of icebergs, sparring polar bears, horses in snow, hoare frosted trees, dusty ranching scenes, golden scenes of camel trains and desert sand dunes, misty lakesides at dawn, outstanding oriental monochromes, Croatian grassland pastures and a vibrant Atacama sunset.

The Nature category followed and there were many striking images such as snow monkeys at play, humming birds, apes and grizzly bears, hyena pups, fungi, vultures, bee eaters spiders and an amazing selection of colourful butterflies,

Vince Rooker, Life President of the club, showed his admiration for all the photographs that had been submitted and hoped members had been as inspired by the presentation as he had been.
