Sunday 11th March - Felbrigg Hall and Cromer

We struck lucky with the weather again.  Clear blue sky all day - perfect for our Club day out at Felbrigg Hall.  After a quick coffee, we divided into two groups; one explored the Hall's interior and the other explored the parkland and woods.

Picnic lunch was the order of the day, with plenty of pork pies on the menu!  Following lunch, a gentle stroll around the walled and woodland gardens revealed daffodils and camellias in full bloom - the perfect opportunity for practising hyperfocal distance shots.

We then moved on to Cromer and spent some time taking long exposure shots on the beach - too long as it turned out because the fish and chip shops had just closed as we got back into town!  Not to be beaten we managed to track down an excellent Indian restaurant.  It was a long day but hopefully everyone enjoyed themselves and managed to come away with a few good images.

28th February - Print Competition Round 2

We had a very well attended competition evening with nearly 40 of us, including 3 guests, enjoying the 41 prints on display.  The theme for the evening was 'Low Light' and there were some unusual interpretations of the theme.  Many thanks go to our judge, Jeff White, who did an excellent job reviewing each image and offering helpful, constructive criticism.

These are the top scoring images:
