Thursday 1 September saw the first meeting of the new session. An impressive fourteen members altogether showed their work. So, with most submitting ten photographs, commentary on each was necessarily brief. It is always fascinating to hear the story behind an image. Some seriously stunning work was on show and we will no doubt see many of these images again in our competitions.
Treasurer Mathew was gainfully employed taking subscriptions with his impressive pre-printed receipts.
Along with a nice catch-up chat, it was a great start to the 2016-17 year!
Due to a variety of reasons, the number of members and spouses who went on the trip reduced to only seven. Then because of the weather, the two island trip was amended to be only land on one (Health and Safety - slippy causeway).
Still that did not deter us from getting some fantastic shots of the birds and a few seals from a distance. Paul and Graeme have already posted some images on our Facebook page.
By gum those Terns are vicious little birds protecting their nest.
A gorgeous evening on Thursday 12th of May was spent by four teams of BPS members indulging in a photographic Treasure Hunt. Each allocated a colour, the challenge was to was to present a set of five images with that colour as their theme.
Don Crabtree acted as judge and he had a difficult task with a similar standard offered by all the sets. It was encouraging that Don considered that no set was complete rubbish - but slightly surprising since the whole exercise took about 90 minutes from finding suitable subjects to presenting the finished set complete with any desired post-processing.
