The Photography Society share some photos from their latest competition
Every month the Photography Society hold contests to celebrate the vast array of talent amongst our members. As Autumn approaches, instead of documenting the world settling in for Winter, the theme was ‘new beginnings’ to welcome in the new academic year. There were two winners: one selected by the committee and one picked by the society members.
Matthew Cheung’s photograph, chosen by the committee, was taken by the ravine behind his school in Toronto, Canada. It was taken on the first week of Spring, just as many of the plants and flowers were beginning to bloom again; the budding flowers in this photo are called Scilla and tend to bloom into a beautiful bluish-purple every year.

Boris Urumov, who won the Society Award, told us his photograph was taken in a small village called Emona, at the very end of the Balkan Mountains where they meet the Black Sea. For Boris, this symbolised not only the beginning of a new day but the start of our world as everything we know is made of star dust.
