Photography (Digital) – October meeting

The topic ‘Close ups/Macro’ was a challenge, a challenge to which the members rose splendidly; it also caused instructive discussion. On November 18th the topic will be ‘Mist/Fog’ – a number of mornings recently have offered a good opportunity to those who rise early!  No doubt there’ll be more. The December meeting is ‘Christmas lunch’ […]

Drawing and Painting for Pleasure

Bird Watching (Monday) – October & November meetings
