Re: Ideas for photoshoots

The Bures Dragon is impressive and if the Chapel is open I believe that is really interesting too. Great suggestions, thanks. Best wishes ...

An aspect of photography I simply had not appreciated and was clearly unaware of the complexity. Lisa was right, let's just start with the moon and see how it goes !!! Ed, conscious y...

Re: March Meeting

The 3 shots I had for this evenings meeting -

The street lamp most will have seen before.
The sun dial was captured on an Autumn day out to Aldeburgh
The tree image was taken in the walnut orchard close to my home in Boxted - again as part of my course.

Will stay in touch.
