This gloriously evocative picture of a Suffolk coastal cottage at sunrise proved to be the favourite of visitors to the recent annual exhibition of Diss & District Camera Club.

The annual exhibition was held at St Mary’s Church in Diss on September 27-29 and again proved to be very well attended by several hundred people over the three days.

Some 15 exhibitors were each showing six pictures. Visitors voted for their favourite image, and the winning image was “Struck” by Nick Seaman.

Taken in late September 2017 at Shingle Street, a small coastal hamlet, at the mouth of Orford Ness, eight miles south west of Woodbridge, the building in the striking photo is a derelict cottage, illuminated by the rays of the rising sun.

Club publicity officer John Hutton said: “It was a completely open subject for the exhibitors people could submit whatever they wanted but the six images they displayed had to be on a single theme.”

The exhibition’s raffle was won by Mick in Diss and he chose Lee Acaster’s image entitled “Diorama” for his prize. It is a moody black and white image taken in London’s Canary Wharf.

The club, which currently has 35 members, is open to anyone with an interest in photography and is always on the look out for new members.

They recently also held an Open Evening at the Grasmere Club in Diss that was also well attended with some potential new members.

Anyone interested in joining the club should go along to any of their meetings, the next is on October 16. Potential new members should contact the club first, as two separate activities are planned for that evening. Full details at disscamera.org.uk
