No real rules for this competition but some notes-

1) Photographs should show a Dolomite or a part of a Dolomite.
2) An interesting location is good.
3) An interesting technique is also good, maybe lighting or effects like smoke canisters.
4) They can be taken using anything, phone, instamatic etc.
5) The winner will be asked to supply a .jpg of 1Mb or greater to allow printing.
6) The chosen 10 finalists will be downloaded from Facebook or this forum one week before TDCIR and printed around A5 size for visitor voting on
the day.

Enjoy!

Mike Groom

Hi Mike, Here is my submission for the photo competition.
It shows an I.R. photo of SWK after a hot run.
Its interesting how much heat is at the back of the bonnet and around the front spoiler.
I think it complies with the rules ?

Tony.

Hello TDC members and thank you for a fantastic day today at Millets Farm Centre.
We had a great time walking around looking at all the beautiful cars in the lovely sunshine and in a fantastic venue too.
There was a lot to do and see if you had a family with children etc and it's all In a lovely part of the world in Oxfordshire.
Thank you for putting on a great show of cars with great people to chat with about all things Triumph, oh and it brought back many happy memories of our Dolomite and of course gave us a good excuse for a little run out in our Stag.
Top marks TDC. Many thanks Des and Family. :D

Hi Matt and the Team, Thank you very much for organising today's event. It was really good. The Craft show items / the Farm shop / the Garden Centre were very popular with the Family, so everybody was happy. Just like Hatton Country Park last year. We didn't know that this place existed so thanks to our hosts for sponsoring it.
Same again next year ?
Cheers for now,
Tony.

I make no apologies for the amateur flight path, this was the third only time the device has been out of its box and as for the controls, I'm afraid I graduated well before the 'playstation generation' and the day job prevents me from editing so you'll even see the foliage footage, but here are the two passes I made with the drone:

https://youtu.be/LtBm7KqzJHc

https://youtu.be/iHExAlqxhmA


The first is terminated by low battery automatically returning the device to me, the second by a bush that quite obviously moved into the flight path!

Enjoy!

I liked the way the drone decided to hide in the tree.

Very good footage.
