The Swindon Club tried turning the lights off in the hall, but then we couldn't find where someone had put the camera :-
cause it was too dark. Very Happy Very Happy

You had to be at the show to fully enjoy the splendour of all the trees. oh, and to catch up with all the old friends there.

Mark, that's a lovely photo of the Certificate, maybe we should have turned off the lights after all. Smile

Is it actually possible to break one's own record?

But seriously, despite my late arrival on account of Swindon's all too obvious love-affair with traffic roundabouts and no street signs, I was hugely impressed with this show. Billed to me as a "local club show" it knocked spots off some of the larger "national" shows I have attended in terms of quality of tree and quality of display. No single tree or display was less outstanding than the others. There was also a good mix, as someone has said already, of trees and traders, and a wonderful atmosphere. I wondered beforehand why I had never been before and now I am determined to return next year with more time to spend wandering about.

Regards
the formerly irate Glaswegian bird in the carpark who is now overwhelmingly gobsmacked by the sheer breathtaking quality of the Swindon show.

btw the bicycle journey breakdown was Bristol to Swindon (outskirts thereof) - 40 miles in about two and a half hours. Swindon outskirts to venue - 5 miles in about erm... two hours, three phone calls to Harleyrider and a detour round about 100 roundabouts. Or was it the same one 100 times? And please note "that" phone call was only 45 seconds.

Really sorry I missed you. You are not alone, I must have gone 'round' that magic roundabout 60 times, and what bright-spark ever decided to name it as such?

Got home 40 minutes quicker than I got there. Rolling Eyes

Catch you later in the year Fiona.

Glad to hear the local also get lost in Swindon. I was very temporally mislocated when I drove through there a few years ago.

Looked like a good show.

Ok, here's a direct link to my Swindon 2011 album on Photobucket. I decided it's easier and quicker to do it this way rather than resize 75 pics one by one so they fit this screen. Please feel free to copy and use any you want.
My apologies to the owners of the trees for the poor quality in some of the pics. If I stood to far away the image went yellow, if I got too close I got a nasty shadow from the flash. Typically, the ideal distance was usually occupied by person or persons unknown trying to view the trees.

Shohin exhibit photos from 2011, 9th Swindon 'Winter Image' Show

Post  Mark Cooper on Mon Feb 21, 2011 11:21 pm

So, as promised, here are a few photos of the Shohin exhibits :-

First, two photos which represent about two thirds of John Armitage's extensive shohin display, all of which won the "Best Shohin Display" award :-

White Pine (and a Cotoneaster , I think)



Itoigawa, Potentilla, Chinese Elm (yellow pot), and Zelkova far right :-



Next, a Shohin Berberis (grown from nursery stock by the owners) used as an "accent" plant as part of a larger display :-



Red Pine awarded the "Best Shohin"" trophy, with Primula accent plant :-



The full Shohin display of which the above Red Pine was part ("modesty forbids" that I identify the owners !) :
Starting from the top, and then left to right : White Pine "Zuisho", Pyracantha (yellow pot) and Trident Maple, Broom style Zelkova and Star Jasmine, and far right, Red Pine :-



Further pictures of the other exhibits to come later. Mark

That is a top notch shohin display. Really works well and I love that yellow pot.

PS Congratulations on the correct white balance in the photos too. ThumbsUp

That rocks!!! I am crazy about Bob B´s mini-Tokonoma. It is so well done. And there are so many good Shohin on display - including some I guess is Mark and Ritas. I think there really is a good bonsai (shohin or not) community there and the Swindon´s must be happy to house this event. Good quality. Thanks for sharing.
Congratulations all who have taken part. Envy, envy, envy ... Very Happy
And, again, great photos Mark.

Morten

Post  Bob Bailey on Wed Feb 23, 2011 6:52 am

Hi Morten
Thank you for your kind comments on my mini-tokonoma,because of the weight it is a struggle to get to shows ,but worth the effort when it is set up.

The amount and quality of the Shohin/Mame displays at this years show was amazing especialy the displays of Mark and Ritta and John Armatage and was something I think you would have really enjoyed.
I would welcome your thoughts and others on the Itogawa in the ox-blood glazed pot,does it work? I am still unsure.I think possibly you can get away with it with Shohin/Mame, but would it work with larger evergreens?
Regards Bob
