PHOTOGRAPHY - GROUP ONE

by Tim Wright - 11:01 on 22 February 2018

At last, a  splendid day for photography and eleven of us met at the Pier Head in Stromness for 90 mins of clicking. The sun shone and the wind was almost non existent. The reflections were magnificent and the colours of the boats accentuated by the bright conditions. What more could a photographer want. A happy bunch then decanted to the Standing Stones for tea and a mound of cakes that were demolished rapidly.

"Night Photos " was the project for the month and everyone had had a go. St Magnus Cathedral was the most popular subject alongside a variety of other Orkney street and harbour scenes. However we had some lovely Aurora photos, an Enchanted Forest, the moon and even a photo of the International Space Station. The latter was remarkable as it was travelling at 17000 mph so obviously needed a very fast shutter speed! Thanks to all who contributed.

Recent photos was the replacement for the lack of pictures taken at the previous meeting. These featured the leader's search for his roots to some photos from last summer of butterflies and flowers. All in all a great variety showing that the participants were out and about with their cameras on a regular basis.

There was discussion about how the group was going to forward over the next year and I will write to you separately concerning this.
