Hi Folks, Spring has sprung! It has been fairly still but I feel theWesterlies are soon to be upon us.
This will be held at the St Johns building, Monday 10th October, 7pm for 7.15pm.
Our monthly speaker could not make it so we will have an inhouse night, along with the judge’s comment on our Environmental Portraits.
The set subject is “Contradictions”, a little tricky but this can set imaginations going.
The images need to be in by the evening of the meeting. Please be aware of the new sizing requirements.
The following month’s subject is “ Rust’.
Fourteen of us ventured into the Southwest in mid September. The bad weather did not occur and we had two great days.
First stop was a necessary coffee in Makarora and then on to Blue Pools and then the Gates of Haast. The river was still high from the previous rain. We had a short lunch stop in Haast before driving down to Jackson Bay.
Some went down to the shoreline and the wharf and some among the craypots and rusty stuff.
Saturday night was enjoyed at the the Haast Pub; a noisy night as the Allblacks- Pumas game was on.
Next day we went north to Ships Creek and the onto the Salmon farm for lunch. We spent a while at Bruce Bay; huge amounts of driftwood/debris there. Then home with a short stop at the whitebait shop at Waita river.
Great time had by all! Images from the weekend are being submitted through Casual submissions .
Hopefully we shall have more trips. The committee are asking members for suggestionsfor day trips and 2-3 day expeditions. Any ideas? We shall shall try and organise a day trip before the end of the year.
