LONG EATON CAMERA CLUB

Members of the Club travelled to the City of Litchfield on the Evening of Monday the 25th of July. After struggling through the road works we arrived in the City only to met with a summer deluge, which lasted for approximately 20minutes. At one stage we were ready give up as the weather was so dismal, eventually the sun came out and the skies turned blue. Litchfield is a beautiful city, with a very ornate cathedral. In the end it was a most enjoyable night. The summer season is drawing to a close rapidly. The club indoor season start Monday the 6th of September at the Womens Institute, Wilne Road, Sawley, door open 19:30.

Summer has been a bit of a washout, but that hasn't stopped members of the camera club visiting distant places. The latest night out was to Comfort, where members took a leisurely walk along the canal, happily snapping points of interest on the way. The walk back was less than pleasurable as the heavens opened and the rain came down and we all got soaked. Although wet, we all had a pleasurable evening. Thanks to all who visited the clubs photographic exhibition at the library.

The weather was beautiful for the Clubs outing to Highfield Park at Nottingham University, the best night of the summer so far, it was almost to hot to take pictures. As well as looking for the ultimate picture to frame, the night out is a good leisurely stroll for the Club members. About sixteen members took part. We will have to wait until the autumn to see some of the photographs.
