Saturday 18th July - Great Witchingham International Horse Trials

This was our last club event of the season and we were not disappointed ... fantastic weather and a wonderful venue provided us with plenty of photographic opportunities - horses, people and dogs everywhere you looked!

15 members + 3 guests enjoyed the day - many of us totally exhausted and sunburnt but still happy at the end of the day!

Tuesday 14th July - AGM and Presentation of Awards

A very good turnout for our AGM which was followed by the presentation of awards to the club members who had either done well in the Photographer of the Year Competitions or had success in the Image of the Year Competitions.

We then watched an AV of the highest scoring images from the various competitions throughout the year which Robin Orrow had compiled for the club - what an amazing collection of really high quality images - well done everyone!

To round off the evening we had a buffet plus drinks which seemed to be appreciated judging by the speed it disappeared!

See below for some of the award winners:

7th July - Barbie Lindsay 'Creative Photography'

This was our last proper meeting of the year and Barbie Lindsay made sure we went out with a bang not a whimper.  Her presentation was titled 'Creative Photography' and the images and stories she shared with us demonstrated many creative approaches.  Not all the images appealed to everyone, but no-one can deny the technical skills and vision that Barbie uses to create her award-winning images.  A thought-provoking evening - thanks, Barbie .
