    WALES   is really photogenic and very beautiful from one end to the other—but Switzerland   wow—if ever you can get on the Swiss railways   thats a treat of a lifetime.

    I agree with both of you. I thought Margaret was an excellent speaker and a talented photographer. She demonstrated who we can take an ordinary photo and turn it into a masterpiece just as photographers did 100 years ago with the technology they had then. She certainly had plenty of energy and enthusiasm.

    I visited  Wales last year and I’d forgotten how beautiful it was. I’ve been lucky enough to visit Iceland, but I think Wales is just as beautiful and has more a lot trees! I’m told the Swiss trains are very reliable, but then they don’t go very fast.

    PETER If ever you take a run around on the Swiss train system you will not want speed. The scenery is magic to behold. There is one run through the Gottard Pass where the train is high up through mountain tunnels   and spirals to get to the bottom. There is one which tunnels through a mountain  –could be Eiger and near the top -and from  a  station platform inside the mountain  there  is a panoramic window  looking out over the mountains and glaciers etc. Some trains are all panoramic windows. There are more train departure and arrivals  in  Zurich station than anywhere in Europe as it links Germany and France-Italy. We went up Mount Rigi on a train and came down by cable car. Wish I had a digital camera then–Wales is beautiful–Switzerland   is out of this world. Lake Lucerne is majestic–make it your next trip Peter.

    Thanks Ken. I’ll note it in my little black book. I hear that Austria is just as beautiful.

    I thought Margaret was wonderful and quite inspiring.  It shows how important spotting the shot and having a good eye is. I was gutted to have missed the first half due to wrestling with my printer and the Christmas cards.  Hopefully I will be able to catch a full presentation by her another time.  Never been to Switzerland but it is on my bucket list.
