Tangahua Lions Lodge Day-trip

The trip to the Tangihua Lodge was enjoyed by the members who attended.  The weather was kind, and some interesting images were captured. What a great asset this place is.

Tutukaka Outing

On Saturday 30th July, ten Camera Club members headed to Tutukaka, but as it was very wet underfoot, the trip out to the Lighthouse was postponed, but armed with a Challenge (thank you Donna), all found plenty to photograph in and around the marina area. The results of the Challenge will be displayed on the August 18th Club night.
One person was very pleased that the inclement weather had her wearing a rain jacket when she was annointed from above while standing for too long under some nesting Herons.  A photo op missed.

Final Fling

Lots of fun at the Town Basin - thanks to Christine for setting the photographic scavenger hunt. It started off wet, but turned into a lovely evening. The Hunt was supposed to take 40 min. but ended up taking 1½ hours! ending just on dark, which was ideal for visiting the Christmas lights in Memorial Drive, then a welcome cuppa at Rose's. Thank you Rose. Merry Christmas all!

Macro Photography

Check out the new link to Johan J.Ingles-Le Nobel's web page on Macro and Extreme Macro photography. Well worth a look.  (In LINKS tab.)
