The images in this gallery are the highest scoring images submitted by Solihull into the recent 3Ss Contest. This annual 3-way contest puts our society up against the best images from Sheffield and Shillington. Each club submitted 20 digital files which were mixed up and the clubs are not identified. Three independent judges reviewed the images and gave points to each. Steve Clifford was the judge for the Solihull leg held on 27th November 2018.
