We are surrounded by water in Huntingdonshire so it’s no surprise The Hunts Post 2015 Photo Competition is awash with pictures featuring the wet stuff.

The River Great Ouse features in a number of entries, which now total more than 450, and the district’s many lakes are also popular spots for stunning snaps. There are also some more abstract water-based images, and others depicting the area’s rich supply of wildlife.

The competition, organised in partnership with St Neots and District Camera Club, has four sections, two for juniors and one for adults. There’s also a wildlife category, sponsored by the Huntingdonshire local group of the Wildlife Trust.

Prizes are up for grabs and the winners will be revealed at the camera club’s annual exhibition, which this year is at the Priory Centre, St Neots, on Saturday, March 28.

Everyone’s entries will be on display at the exhibition, alongside photos by club members and a Wildlife Trust stand.
