UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHS

take by Pat Spencer in summer 2014

ps

Pat Spencer is a deep-sea diver and showed us her fabulous pictures taken off Trondheim in Norway, diving near the 2WW wrecks of the Frankenwald and the Wilheim.

These are taken more than 20 metres down and one or two show coral growing in this cold water.

Photography Group

We are positively not “Techies”. Our aims are simple – Learn – Share - Gain Confidence – Satisfy –
Amuse and Enjoy - we learn through doing and the informal exchange of knowledge and experience. 
Level of expertise and sophistication of equipment are far less important than 
an open mind and a good eye for a picture.

 

Meetings are monthly and each is based on an aspect of photography with a practical session or a review
of member pictures - forthcoming topics include: Summer Landscapes, Holiday Snaps! and Motion & Movement.

 

Occasional photostrolls take us into the surrounding countryside, looking for opportunities which may 
relate to the time of year or merely the myriad of subjects arising from a leisurely stroll.
Typically a couple of miles walk then a pub lunch provide ample opportunity for sharing knowledge and swopping ideas.

 

Whether you're a happy snapper or a more serious photographer, you’ll be welcome to join
us and share your experiences with an interesting and amusing  group of like-minded people.
