This week, our Camera Club had ‘a member’s evening’. As it was early in the new winter season, we were asked to produce short slide shows showing what we had been up to during the summer. Happily, there were more than enough presentations, so mine was not required. Just as well really, since it wasn’t very imaginative. Having gone to the trouble to produce it though, I thought that I might as well publish it as a blog post.
Here are a few of the places that I have snapped this summer.
To me, summer starts in May. So here are a few snaps taken between May and September. They’re not my best photos from this summer. They’re just a few random snaps pulled from my Lightroom archive showing some of the places that I have visited.
My wife and I went to Cyprus for a week. It rained non stop for 24 hours while we were there, but I still managed a few snaps. Here is one of Archbishop Makarios, way up in the clouds in the Trudos Mountains.
In mid May, we visited friends in Nottingham, and whilst there we went to the Derwent Valley, where the Dam Busters practised. This is a stitched panorama of the reservoir that they used for practise.
We also took a stroll by the River Trent.
In June, we tried Greece for a coach tour. The weather was better than Cyprus, but not always great. I also had a fall and damaged my camera on the first day. Elastoplast held it together for the rest of the holiday.
We saw the sun. (this was at Volos)
Saw some misty mornings over the water. (Cleddau Estuary)
That was some of our summer.
I hope that I will soon be able to start posting a little more frequently. Please keep an eye open.
