Our fist evening of the new season was a great success with a very high attendance and some new faces too! They heard two talks by members. Paul Hill gave his long-awaited presentation on macro photography, eagerly anticipated because we all know the high the quality of his work. He included a discussion of the image above, which we all greatly enjoyed a while back, and how sad it is that it doesn’t readily fall into any competition category. Too indistinct for “Nature” but too descriptive to be recognised as an artistic creation for the “Open” section.

In the second half of the evening Wallace Baxter took us on a (very calm) North Sea boat trip to watch the remarkable site of Gannets plunging into the waters like white arrows, gulping fish like, well, Gannets!
