This is a very new group. If your interest is visiting venues not too distant from the centre of Peterborough which are considered photogenic, ‘places/building/landscapes’, of course this does not exclude people photography. People often add a great deal of interest to an image. Then come and join us.
We meet up once a month at an agreed place and time, share transport, visit places, get a few images, which we feel are the ‘bee’s knee’s’, have a coffee or lunch, return to base. Then perhaps every three months, or during the winter months, we could meet in a members home and view some of our digital images, talk through why we did something a particular way, invite constructive comments/guidance from the other members.
Very pleased to say we had our inaugural venue meeting today (20 th Nov 2018) at Kings
Dyke, Whittlesea. Meeting up at the Tesco car park in Hampton, three of us, (Tony, Kevin
and myself) journeyed to Kings Dyke. Walked the short distance to spend sometime in the
hide, complements of Tony, who is member and has the necessary key. We ventured on
further, uphill, (difficult for me) downhill, along the flat, with views across several miles of
shrubland, woodland, open areas and ponds. The brick works is very large and amazing,
specially when viewed from a height. The skyline bristles with chimneys and wind turbines,
but to my mind it’s not ‘excessive’ and lends character and interest to the view. The weather
was not great, dull, with little diffusion in the cloud, cold, whilst not being unbearable, when
you’re with like-minded people who enjoy just being away from the rat race enjoying the
countryside taking images. Topped off with coffee and a snack in Costa before heading
What more can you ask?
