A first for our Society, 9 March saw a joint competition with Stowarzyzenie FOTSPOT a photography group in Poznan, Poland. Each club had selected twenty images on the topic 'Exoticism'. The BPS images were judged by two Polish judges nominated by FOTSPOT while the FOTSPOT images were judged by a judge nominated by BPS. These operations were carried out separately and the results revealed at our meetings on Thursday.
We started March with a very interesting training evening on 2nd entitled 'How to Capture Birds'. Our speaker was Michael Myers, a member whose bird images have impressed club members and judges alike.
On Thursday 23 February we were treated to a twinkling talk on photographing the night sky by David Bishop from the Bradford Astronomical Society.
A whole new universe was opened up as he explained how to get images of distant objects - double stars, galaxies and nebulae many of which are not visible to the naked eye. Also 'nearby' objects like the moon, eclipses, transits of the sun and amazing alignments of planets were all shown.
