Roundup of club activities during June/July 2019
6 June - A review of the images taken at the Table-top evening held in April. It was fascinating to see the varied ways each member tackled certain subjects and the level of creativity achieved in producing images from what was a jumble of items on the tables at the time, none more so than that of a metal grasshopper or a small bust!
During the second half of the evening Peter Jillians spoke about how he gained his LRPS accreditation and showed us his panel of images. It was interesting and informative to learn how Peter had set about it and where he had sought advice. The result was a well-balanced, beautifully controlled and printed set of pictures.

20 June - There was a good turnout of members for our outside visit: an evening walk along the banks of the River Wey from Shalford to Farncombe lock. The tranquility of the river on a reasonably warm summer evening, broken occasionally by passing walkers, cyclists, kayakers and canal boats, provided plenty of photo opportunities. We ended the evening in the usual manner for weary photographers with welcome refreshments at a local hostelry!
7 July - An interesting visit to the Coultershaw Wharf and Beam Pump in West Sussex. Despite light drizzle for most of the morning we were inside most of the time.There were excellent displays regarding the history and working details of the equipment which a former Lord Egremont had installed to provide water for the population of Petworth. The volunteers on duty had excellent knowledge regarding the project, and with which they have been very involved during the restoration project. We were able to watch the equipment started up and running. It was possible to explore the site and view both the mill pond and Archimedes screw which supplies green electricity to the National Grid. Some of the money thus earned is given back to the project by the current Lord Egremont in order to restore the equipment and maintain the site.
Hope you all have a good summer break and lookng forward to seeing you, and new prospective members, at the start of the new season on 19 September.
