Summer Event One - Bluebells @ Clumber Park

An arty one to get started...

I have just sat down with a beer and transferred my photo's to the computer and so thought that I would create the report for tonights event....

After watching the rain pour down today I was sat feeling sorry for our Programme Secretary, Ray, after organising the get together and enthusing so much about it, it was looking as though it would be cancelled due to the weather. Luckily in the afternoon it started to brighten and the rain stayed off for the rest of the night.

It was good to see some familiar faces, including that of Mr Janaszek who joined us for the night. After a quick chat we all headed, mostly in our own separate ways to make the most of the light and the wonderful subject, Bluebells. Trying our best not to disturb the bluebells there was an extreme amount of weaving, some strange/extreme camera angles to get the shots and the light stayed pretty much ok until everyone had finished.

We then headed down to the lake for some more photo's to finish the night off, although by then the light had pretty much gone. Hopefully there was enough light for James' photo of the rat to come out ok :-)

All in all I think everyone had a good time, shame that the pub visit didn't come to fruition although the tipple of whiskey from Mr Staley certainly went down a treat! - Oh - and thank you to the RAF for the flypasts by the AWACS!

Here's one I took earlier!

Night all...
