HOS Millennium Photo Competition
The HOS Millennium Photo Competition was held during the 2000 Autumn Meeting at Wellesbourne.  

We only include the First Prize winners here, but to see a larger version of a picture, just click your mouse on the individual 'thumb-nail'. 

It is unfortunate that, with the limits on screen resolution and file sizes, the resulting images cannot do full justice to the clarity, colours and brilliance of the original pictures.
