Well what can I say. Loved it, it has really given me another way to look at things. I know ill never be able to travel the globe but the UK is waiting and I have seen mosit of it and Wales is on our door step and a great place. So looking forward to my next day out.
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.
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.
