Why not come along and support the event. Our two ambassadors, Alan and Lorraine will be there.
A Note from Gavin
Just thought I’d let you know there’s a classic car rally at Coopers of Weston on Trent from 6pm this coming Thursday night. It always presents great photo opportunities. I wonder if you have time to put a last minute post out to the membership please.
I will be there with a rusty XR3i! Also Dave Bell is taking his Deltic (TVR!) and John Orton one of his family of minis!
Located close to Manchester these two locations give an opportunity to see the remains of Industrial Manchester and the new developments based around the old Salford Dock area. We’ll visit Castlefield first to see the canal basin and old mills and warehouses and the move on to Salford Quays staying until duck to get some twilight and evening shots. Around the quays you will find the Lowry, the Imperial War Museum North and Media City, which make outstanding subjects.
Ian Pettit will be coordinating the trip and both he and other members of the society will be there at assist with your images. Please let Ian know if you are planning to attend, so that we don’t miss anyone. The plan is to meet in Castle Square in Melbourne at 10 am and car share where possible.
“How To”, aka “Technical Session” , 8th June 2017
Due to unforeseen circumstances, It will not be possible for me to run the planned session this Thursday night. I have work commitments which mean that I will not be around next Thursday. It is proposed to reschedule the planned session to the 22nd June , subject to us being able to book the Thomas Cook Memorial Hall. Full details shortly.
Don’t forget, this Saturday (June 3rd) at midnight, is the closing date for entries into the 2017 British Wildlife Photography Awards. With a £5,000 top prize and plenty of Canon gear up for grabs, why not give it a go.
You’ve got to be in it, to win it!
