CCP Photo Comp July 2022 - This month's comp is closed please refer to current month's theme

We are well into winter so what better way to celebrate then to make it our next photo competition theme.

Winter doesn’t mean we have to stay indoors - though some days it certainly helps. Either way there are so many beautiful things to see and photograph.

What do you do in winter? How do we feel in winter? How do you keep warm? What are the visual marvels of this season?

Pull on your woolly gloves and find us some warming images.
