Governors Bay Walk

Ten Club members started from the Allandale Reserve and with cameras at the ready and proceeded along the Foreshore Road Walkway on Sunday 21st May.  Originally built in 1857 this bridleway later became the the main road but now provides a 3.5km coastal walkway with great views down the harbour and interesting features along the way.

The group had lunch at the Governors Bay Hotel and returned to Allandale along the same route in the afternoon snapping under brighter conditions with different lighting effects.

Tekapo Field Trip 

The Club had a field trip to Lake Tekapo on the weekend of 25-25 March 2017 at which 22 members and partners attended.  Three houses were booked and all met for a BYO dinner at one of them on the Friday night.  A wide range of photographs were taken, needless to say, The Church of the Good Shepherd, the night sky, the lake and the surrounding countryside.

The Club usually has a number of field trips during the year and these prove invaluable for getting to know each other, trying out new photography techniques and learning from each other in a different environment.
