From staff reports
Each spring, members of the Photography Club of Beaufort submit their best photos in competition among their peers. This spring, the club is still meeting virtually so judges could be selected from around the world as long as they were available to Zoom on the night of the competition.
The Spring 2021 judges were Rick Rhodes, a commercial photographer from Charleston; Don Wouri, a nature photographer from Columbia; and Joanne Stolte, a landscape and nature photographer from Southern California.
Winners this Spring were:
Novice: Pam Keith for “Ruffled Feathers”
Intermediate: 1. Ruth McCully for “Autumn Sunset in the Smokies” and 2. Jack Beaucaire for “Widgeon Point”
Advanced: 1. (tie) Sophia Schade for “It Tastes Like Chicken” and 1. (tie) Private Thoughts by Rich Matheny and 2. Juergen Thiessen for “Autumn Reflection”
Expert: 1. (tie) Joan Eckhardt for “Feather Afloat” and 1. (tie) Paul Nurnberg for “Blue Eyes”
The club will continue to meet virtually the second Monday of every month at 7 p.m. through Fall 2021, when hopefully life will begin to return to normalcy. For more information, visit www.beaufortphotoclub.com.
