    Photoday 2016

Pictured: Some of the contributors to our annual photo exhibition on South Petherton's carnival day.

Nineteen members exhibited over 300 images. The exhibition drew many complimentary remarks at the time and later about both the range of subjects on display and on the high standard of the images.

Up-coming programme

Some of Brian's fantastic gallery can be seen at - enjoy! The monthly challenge for this meeting is Wet lands ...... which can be interpreted as actual wetlands, or simply just as lands which are wet - it's entirely up to you.
