PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP

by Tim Wright - 21:50 on 26 October 2011

Six of us met at Westbank after a late change due to a poor weather forecast. As to be expected, with moments to go the weather cleared and one member who missed the late call off email and phone had an interesting afternoon taking photos of Rendal and the Doo Cot. The rest of us had a viewing of the excellent CD of photos put together by Sally for the Edinburgh Visit plus pictures of the actual visit activities and a birds eye view of lots of the sites visited from Tim. Tea and cakes were taken and a marvellous variety of Autumnal/Harvest photos viewed. Standouts were Steve's "Misty Haystacks", Sally's "Jam Making", Bunty's "Three Legged Chair War Memorial", Judy's "Windmill" and Margaret's "Dying Fungus ".
The next meeting will be on 23rd Nov at 1.30pm at the Rendal Doocot. There is not a lot of space there so share cars if you can. Thence to ? Tingwall, and Woodwick followed by tea. Hopefully the weather will be ok but check your emails the night before just in case
The project is "A photo suitable for a Christmas Card". This can be anything you like from people, pets, views etc. You can add in script if you want but you don't have to present them as as fully finished cards. I will see if I can find some examples in my Archives.

Tim did not mention his own superb slideshow - a selection of aerial shots of sea and land scapes taken in Orkney when a passenger in his friend's glider! We "travelled" from Scapa Beach to Skara Brae, taking in Kirkwall airport, lochs and brochs and on to Hoy and Westbank en route.
Thank you too to Phyllida for the cakes.
Sal
