Fallen Flower

This month's Photo of the Month is the beautiful 'Fallen Flower', submitted by Scrumph. Congratulations!

Watch a Showcase of the winning Photos!

This month has been an incredibly good one for the Photographers. With Tav back at the helm and with Rich and Aurora having joined her as group moderators, there was a rush of new energy, and the group hadn't been as busy in a long time.

Rich suggested we run a 'Photo of the Month' competition within the group, and the winner is Scrumph's 'Fallen Flower', shown above. We'll be running PotM every month from now on, and the competition is open to all participating Photographers members. If you'd like to join us, details of the group are at the bottom of this column.

Well done to everyone who has had a photo applied to an Edited Guide Entry this month, particularly to AlexAshman who has had three photos accepted in his first month as a member. Here are the winning photos:
