Knutsford photographers capture those key moments in sport – Knutsford Guardian

NEARLY everyone likes to capture that crucial moment at a sporting event when the complete story is told.

This week we challenged members of Knutsford Photographic Society to come up with some memorable images that really capture that sporting moment.

From the action at a school sports day to a professional golfer putting at the Open KPS, members have captured them all.
