• Summer Outdoor Photo Shoot

    Our venue for this summer's outdoor photo shoot on the 14th May was Chichester Canal. This session attracted eight members who gathered at the canal trust headquarters by the canal basin in Chichester to enjoy an afternoon's photography in glorious sunshine. We were welcomed there by trust representative Dudley Pound who had arranged for us to travel up and down the canal on one of the two passenger boats.

    Some members decided to travel on the "Kingfisher" and photograph from the boat on the journey down to Hunston, whilst others walked down there to photograph from the tow path and bridge. On the return journey we passed the trust's other passenger boat "Richmond" along with smaller craft including canoes and a rowing boat.

    As well as the favourable lighting conditions brought about by the warm sunshine, photo opportunities were enhanced by the appearance of the local wildlife as well as distant views of Chichester Cathedral.

    Following this most enjoyable afternoon, we gathered together a week later at St Wilfrid's Church Hall on the 21st May to view and discuss our photographic efforts from the 14th. On this occasion we were joined by Dudley and Malcolm from the Canal Trust who were most interested to see all the pictures taken and were pleased to take away a selection of images on a USB stick to use for promoting the trust's boating services.
