Photographic exhibition

I had the privilege of manning the Gallery again this afternoon which gave me the opportunity to view the new exhibition for April.

Colin Preston is a photographer based on the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border and several of his photographs in his exhibition are of local scenes - One of the first things that was very noticeable was the stunning colours in these striking landscapes.

This is Colin's first ever exhibition, I hope it won't be his last and I wish him every success as he continues with his photographic journey
