Summer shoot 6: Thursday 24 August 2017

Bristol Suspension Bridge

Summer shoot 5: Thursday 10 August 2017

At last, a decent evening weather-wise!  Eight of us parked up near West Kennet Long Barrow and took the walk up the hill to the Barrow with views over Silbury Hill.  There were plenty of swallows flying around and inside the cave - though not sure anyone was quick enough to photograph them! One member's drone kept an eye on us .....  while we found our own way to capture the spirit of the place; for two of us that meant just sitting and enjoying the environment on a calm evening and that's allowed too!

Summer shoot 4: Thursday 27 July 2017

Nine members met up in Victoria Park, Bath, on yet another grey summer evening.  Nonetheless we had a go, particularly taking photographic inspiration from the buildings around the Royal Crescent.  We certainly found inspiration in a couple of local bars afterwards!

Summer shoot 3: Sunday 16 July 2017


6 members plus two honorary ones met on a warm afternoon to enjoy the delights of Iford Manor Gardens.  This small and steeply sloping Italianate garden, with Manor and cloisters, lies adjacent to the River Frome, near Westwood.  We sought images of sculptures, butterflies, flowers and anything else that caught our eyes before settling down to afternoon tea! And yes, there was cake....

Summer Shoot 2: Thursday 13 July 2017

Six of us found our way to the Avoncliffe Aqueduct for yet another evening of dull skies though it improved as time went on. There was very little canal boat activity but there were lots of runners and cyclists along the tow-path making multi-use a little tricky. Our challenges were to find images for the subjects rustic charm, reflection, woodland and red.  Not sure how far we got with those but it was good to catch up, especially over a drink outside the Cross Guns afterwards!
