PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP 1 OCTOBER

by Tim Wright - 20:22 on 16 October 2013

Eight of us met at Yesnaby in overcast conditions but not as wet as the Bird walk from the morning. It stayed dry and we were able to walk down along the edge of the cliffs as the  wind was off shore . There was no swell and it was possible to see into the many caves peppering the cliffs. Then up to the cairn and along to Yesnaby Castle,never before seen by one Orcadian member. Tea was taken at the Merkister with some small cakes.
We viewed the photos of Wideford Hill and the Wireless Museum. A couple of photos of Wideford Hill in mist reminded us why we went to the Wireless Museum . Lots of interesting photos from the Museum including  a radio system for use  in church for the deaf from days gone by, as well as many pictures of old Horn radio loudspeakers.
"Brown " produced all sorts from Brown Bears in Alaska to Autumnal trees on the Volga ! What a long way our members need to go to get their photos. Ray had a lovely crisp feather while Sally had a dried up Angelica and Yvonne a rabbit taken in haste .Great photos all around by everyone.
The next meeting is at Newark in Deerness by the pier at 1pm on Wednesday 27th November. The subject is "Something beginning with A". I will be in Australia (begins with "A" so my contribution may be seen later)next time, so Barbra Todd will be coordinating events until I return.
See you nearer Christmas,
Tim
