'Photograph of the Season' Winner - Explora Club Competition

After a hard fought final selection, it is with great pleasure that we can now share the winner and runners up of our recent ‘Photograph of the Season’ Explora Club competition, alongside some of the judges other favourites.

The winning image is by Enrique Cordeyro titled 'Searching Deers’, taken during deer hunting season in the Andes pre-mountain range, Patagonia, which captured the imagination of all the judges equally when we saw it.

Here at Westley Richards HQ, we have been impressed by the quantity and calibre of the entries from across the world, and want to once again thank all of those who have contributed. Westley Richards truly does have a global fanbase to be admired.

Enjoy the imagery.

    What a great treat to see my photograph of my grandson patiently waiting for the bobber to disappear below the surface and have the potential to catch a trout with the fishing pole he chose the day before. The Stetson fedora worn backward is now his fishing hat, only on his head when he and I fish.
    Thank you for choosing it as an honorary mention.
