WINTERINGHAM CAMERA CLUB
MONTHLY REPORT - OCTOBER 2018
On 10 October we were fortunate to have a return visit from globe-trotter Paul Aspden, who gave us two very informative talks which were very well received. Thank you, Paul.
The first talk was about his trip to Chernobyl, which was once a thriving, modern town. Now, following the nuclear disaster in 1986, it is a ruin. Because Paul was taking his photographs in March, with low, grey skies and deep snow on the ground, the sense of the devastation was very evident, and the resulting pictures stark and dramatic.
In contrast, Paul's journey to the red heart of Australia was vivid and dazzlingly bright, but was also full of contrasts. The beginning of his journey was on Fraser Island, a large and tree-filled area formed from compacted sand. The main focus of the trip was based in Alice Springs and the surrounding area - hot, hot, hot! Apart from the town itself, emptiness as far as the eye could see: just flat, red earth interrupted surprisingly by the occasional mountain range and of course Ayers Rock, with it's fantastic rock formations.
The photo slot this month was Flight, and thanks are due to Paul for judging the entries. Here are the winners:
First Dancing Flight: Eliot's Petrels Alice Nunn
Second Getting Ready for Flight Alan Kitchen
Third Long-Haul Flight - Albatross Alice Nunn
Highly Commended Gannets Galore Margaret Knowles
The next meeting is 14 November, when the speakers will be Ann Taylor and Suzanne Kripgans, who will talk to us about The Florist's Art. The photo slot is Shadows.
New members are always welcome on the second Wednesday of each month, 7:30pm in Winteringham Village Hall No experience necessary!
