Our first meeting of the season was on Wednesday 6th September and was very well attended in our new home in the Quaker Meeting House in Keswick. Members enjoyed a presentation by the Chairman on African wildlife and a number of members showed their winning images from last season’s competitions and explained how they took the shots. A report will appear in the Keswick Reminder on Thursday 14th September.
We were extremely pleased to hear the outcomes of the Photographic Society of America international interclub competitions which came out during our summer break. The Society came top of their league in the Nature section and second in the open projected image section. But much more notable was that Carmen Norman’s photo titled The Curtsy was judged as the best image overall from all 130 clubs participating in the open projected image section and Alan Walker’s Kingfisher image was judged the best image overall from the 40 clubs that participated in the Nature section. Congratulations to both of them for their outstanding achievement.
