Thank you to so many of you for coming along to the six Make your Way photography walks as part of the Clyde and Avon Valley Festival in May. We covered all five areas of Carluke, Glassford, Lanark (twice!), Larkhall and Stonehouse, and the idea was to look at these familiar trails in a different way through looking for themes to photograph.

The themes could be anything at all (as you will see below) from "the colour yellow" to "curves" to "neglect". It is a great way to newly explore trails we walk every day. Every new theme you look for naturally leads you to look around and explore the familiar landscape more intimately. We combined this with some new techniques and tips for framing photographs and using the manual settings on the camera to achieve different results. The most important thing was to have fun of course!

I encouraged everybody to put together a mini-portfolio of around ten photographs within one theme. Often themed photographs become stronger when displayed together. On the walks we spoke about putting multiple photographs together for display. Here are some of the best images of yours from the walks.
