VETERAN Maybole photo­grapher Neil Campbell has pulled off a double win at Girvan Camera Club, with triumphs in both the prints and projected images in the Leading Lines competition.

Commenting on Neil’s picture, Tracks in the Snow (seen above), last week, competition judge Finlay Rankin, from Kilmarnock, complimented him on seeing a picture which others would have walked past.

Neil, who is one of the older members of Girvan Camera Club, declared himself “delighted” at 
having won both competitions.

Andy McAlpine, vice president of the club, said: “Neil has made the transition from slides to digital images with considerable ease.

“He takes a great picture, but these two pictures (above and left) are quite stunning. He did well to win both sections against some really tough competition.”
