YPS Project Night - "Water"

Last night was the first of our themed Project Nights of the current season and as usual, we were treated to some spectacular images with 20 members interpreting the theme of "Water" in different ways.

In all, 117 images were submitted with members commenting on why and how they took the image and answering questions posed by other members.

Scarborough sea front proved particularly popular with quite a few images presented with waves crashing over the sea wall...
