Photo of the Month October 2021 Results

Welcome to the StormHour Photo of the Month competition.

The competition is run in conjunction with The Royal Meteorological Society who are kindly offering their Welcome Pack including Tote bag plus 12 months free membership to The Royal Meteorological Society (*although it is possible to win the competition multiple times each year, unfortunately, we can only offer the prize once in any 12 month period)

As always the final decision is very subjective and a difficult choice has to be made from so many great entries.

Thank you to Mark @StormHourMark and @RMetS for judging and we hope you enjoy their choice and the best of the rest beneath.

Thank you for all your entries as ever 🙂
