Travel Photography with Alan Walker, July 1st 2020

On Wednesday afternoon this week Alan Walker gave a Zoom presentation to members and guests of his talk entitled “Travel photography………getting the best photographically from your holidays”

This was a very informative talk looking at all aspects of taking images on vacation and was, of course, illustrated throughout by a selection of Alan’s ( and I dare say a few of of Julie’s) accomplished photographs. If you weren’t able to make it on Wednesday a video of the presentation can be viewed¬† ¬†below:

Competition with Lancaster Photographic Society, June 26th, 2020

On the evening of Friday 26th June the club dipped its collective toes into the world of virtual inter club competitions. A competition with Lancaster Photographic Society was arranged via Zoom with our judge Bob Givens judging from his home ( or wherever the Starship Enterprise was at the time ) in Northern Ireland.

Each club submitted 30 images with no more than 2 images from any one member. On the night a total of 36 members from the two clubs logged on and were treated to a judging tour de force from Bob of a varied selection of high quality images. There were 6 images which scored 20 points:

Male Blackcap from Lancaster:


Reedling from Lancaster:


Focused from Keswick:


The Luskentyre Ponies from Keswick:


Male Bearded Reedling from Keswick:


And finally Budir Church and Graveyard by David Stephenson from Keswick which won “Best in Show”:


The competition was won by Keswick with scores as below:
