Capture Oakville is Oakville Camera Club’s photography competition, which receives 100’s of eateries every year. This year Robert Ratcliffe placed first and received the $1,000 grand prize.

Mr. Ratcliffe did a great job with his entry What Lies Ahead. Due to its popularity with photographers, the Capture Black and White is a tough category to start with. Rising above that with the winning entry is an extraordinary accomplishment!
