Orkney U3A Photo Group One - June 2022

by Tim Wright - 20:31 on 14 June 2022

Twelve of us met at the Sands of Wright to walk around Hoxa Head. Two of the party decided to remain at the Sands and photograph the Camper Vans while the rest set off in cars to Hoxa. Unfortunately on arrival rain set in despite the dry forecast. After 20 mins it eased and off we went up the path. Lots of Marsh Orcids to photograph plus Arctic Terns, Ring Plovers and Redshanks on fence posts. As we got to the head the rain became heavier and one car group turned back while the other four photographers went into the various old wartime structures keeping dry and the shutters active. They returned along the cliff when the rain eased off and finally the sun made an appearance. Heading back to the Sands for a cup of tea this group were distracted by the Moorhen's nest with chicks in that is alongside the road, with mother skulking in the background.

At the Sands the photos from Stronsay were perused. The blue Byre Doors were a popular subject but the sunny weather really made the colours come alive. Best image was Sally's Spray photo along the cliffs by the Vat of Kirbister with a photo bombing Fulmar.

The project "Curves" showed Curves from Swan Necks to Pythons and lots in between. Curved church ceilings seemed to be a popular choice but York City Walls walk was a fine curve indeed.

The next meeting will be 13th July at 2pm in St Mary's in Holm.

The Project will be "Yellow ".
