Thursdays Meeting

Rosemary Wilman managed to enchant us with images all with an originality and visual impact from well known locations that we have seen before such as Santorini, Harris and  Yellowstone. Also images from less familiar locations such as Amritsar and Washington made her talk “About Time and More” an inspiration and lesson in image quality from one of the loyal followers of our club.

Certificates for the Beginners and Intermediate PDI competition were handed out and here is one of the winning images from Corinne Noyalet:

Notable Results

We congratulate Andrew Coe in getting his LRPS.


It is now certain we will finish top of the SCPF Print League first division even though we were 8th in the 8th round. Well done our participants: Ann McDonald, Ross Laney, Mike Davison, George Atkins, Janey Devine, Pete Bamforth, Pietro Rocchiccioli, and Jeanne Sutherland.

We are handing back our trophy for first place in the PDI league that we won last year, as we now are not in the running for the top positions.
