Photography Group 1 - Oct 2018

by Tom Nimmo - 20:26 on 24 October 2018

10 photographers drove through the greyness, wind and rain to their U3A photo group meet at St. Margaret’s Hope.

They drove home once more through the greyness, wind and rain.

In between they had an excellent outing in “The Hope” finding the 16 listed items on Tom’s list. Their photography was bracketed by coffee and cakes at Robertson’s and lunch at The Sands in Burray.

The weather stayed dry as they wandered between Front Road and Back Road ticking off the things on their lists. Green doors, crow stepped gables and corrugations were captured as the sun came out and blue sky appeared. Concentration and determination were etched on the faces of the group as they worked hard to complete their task which was voted a success by all.

After lunch, photos from previous trips to Eday, Honeysgeo and Newark were viewed. The Eday submarine once again surfaced among the images. An excellent capture of a Sandmartin at Honeysgeo was admired as was an image of a somewhat camp seal that waved half-heartedly to the camera. Newark provided a selection of Natural History images including Dunlin, a seal, a turnstone, black backed gulls and 2 sanderling along with seaviews and views of Copinsay.

Autumn was last month’s theme and its bright colours of reds and gold and yellows and lime greens  were shown in images of leaves and trees from across the whole of Britain. Blackberries and rosehips as well as a huge variety of squashes of all shapes sizes and colours added to the Autumn colourfest. Yellow hosta leaves and a cute squirrel tucking into its nutty dinner were also admired.

As always, a great variety of images from many viewpoints was on offer.

The next meeting is to be at The Highland Park Distillery and Tim will convey more details about this soon.

 The theme this month is “Fruit and Vegetables”
