IF THESE pictures don’t get you in the mood for summer then nothing will.

Our fantastic camera club members have done themselves proud yet again with an amazing array of images submitted for this month’s competition.

Argus picture editor Allan Hutchings said: “I picked the nice colour pictures this time and the nice contrasts.

“The winner I decided to go for is the silhouettes against the sunset by Karen Clarke.

Cow parsley is a very common plant, which is what it looks like. It’s everywhere.

“But shot against the setting sun makes it. She has obscured the sun with the silhouettes, which adds to the feeling of warmth.

“It’s the primary colours that we went for this time.

“I like the reflections picture of Hove Lagoon by David Ashdown. That works very well and I loved it.

“David Hunt captured a bee in mid flight, which is very nice as well.

“All of these are very different images.

“I always like looking at other people’s images because everybody has a different take on what they see.

“The camera club members are very good at finding a different take on what they see so it was great to look at what they sent in.”

The theme we are looking for in June is “action” – and you could win a £50 prize.

This is a very broad term and we invite our camera club members to make of it what they will. We are sure they will achieve great results as always.

Argus editor Arron Hendy said: “Ever since we launched our camera club it has been inspiring to see so many great pictures being created of our wonderful county.

“It just shows how you can go out with your phone or a top grade Nikon and get some truly lovely images.

“Anyone can join so please get involved.”
