Photography group update

October our third outing to Washington Wild Fowl trust went very well after a wet start, our normal good weather returned.

November we decided on Castle Eden Dene to shoot some autumn pictures, and again we got off to a damp start before some decent weather returned.

December and January no outings but we did have a meeting to sort out some pictures for the proposed Seaham U3A calendar.

February a sparkling day but freezing cold, never the less Newcastle and Gateshead key side provided us with some very good pictures.

March the Hawthorn Dene snowdrops were the subject for our cameras this month and as usual they offered a stunning sight.

April’s visit was our worst weather experience so far dull and with a bitter wind off the sea, sensible people would have gone home but we still managed to get some interesting pictures.

May Causey Arch was the scene of our latest outing, and after coffee, bacon sandwiches and scones in the little cafe, we headed down into the valley to photograph the oldest surviving railway bridge in the world.  The Tanfield Railway also claims to be the oldest railway in the world running for some six miles, as we were leaving the twelve thirty from Tanfield appeared just for our cameras.

Introducing the Digital Photography group

Leader:  Brian Angus

We are currently meeting on the first Monday of the month at 10.30 am for photography outings, and then again on the third Monday to review the results.

Our first meeting was in August 2012 at Noses Point where everyone took some very good pictures of the wild flowers, which I have to say were beautiful, as was the weather.  On the third Monday we met at a member’s house to see the results.  Congratulations were offered on the very good work produced and gentle constructive comments made on possible improvements.  For our September outing we travelled all the way to the terrace green and the beach and have yet to review the results.   Once again we were blessed with sparkling weather.

Photography is all about pictures not equipment; cameras don’t need to be expensive, any camera will do.  Modern digital cameras are extremely efficient and will reliably produce perfect pictures – you just have to know where to point them.  That’s my job, so why not give it a go!
