Here’s the winning picture in the first-ever Echo Camera Club photo competition, in association with Castle Cameras.

Dan Sands’ picture of bluebells at Abbott Street Copse, Pamphill, was voted the winner by members of the Facebook group after it received the most number of likes.

Ten photographs were shortlisted for the monthly competition which invited members to submit images with a ‘Spring’ theme.

Dan has won a £50 voucher for Castle Cameras.

A new competition for May has launched and this month’s theme is ‘The Natural World’.

Anyone in the Dorset area with an interest in photography is welcome to join the Camera Club on Facebook.
