    What's Happening    (updated 13/06/2019)

  Bradford Abbas Shield 2018:   A great 'Shadows' effort by our members; we ended up ahead of Yeovil and Wincanton, just one point behind Shaftsbury, and 8 points behind the winners Sherbourne Bradford Abbas. Congratulations to them. Congratulations as well to all whose photographs made up our entry - and thanks to all members who submitted images and gave us so many great photos to select our final 10 from. (Click on any image in the slideshow to see it enlarged).
Stop Press:- the topic for the 2019 Bradford Abbas Shield competition has been announced .... "People at Work".

  July 3rd:   Our last meeting of the season and as usual we have a photoshoot out and about ending with a drink and conversation at a local hostelry. This year we are going to the village of Montacute. Meet at the car park opposite the entrance to Montacute House and aim for a 6-45pm start to make the most of the light. There's lots of interest in the village itself, or if you'd like some views you could try the Ladies Walk, the NT Avenues Walk or some of the NT Layers Walk taking in St Michael's Hill and tower (short cut on to this section from the church) - click any of the links for details. We'll conclude at the Kings Head Inn when the light fades.

  August 28th:   Yes, our 'September' meeting and our first meeting of the 2019/20 season is on August 28th. There's no meeting on September 4th while we all get ready for our annual 'Photoday' exhibition in South Petherton on Saturday September 7th. Our challenge for this meeting, by way of kick-starting our entries for the Bradford Abbas Shield (see above), is 'People at Work'.

An outline of our programme for the whole 2018/19 season is available here (opens in a pop-up window).

    Monthly Photo Challenges

Each month the club members are set a photo challenge to produce digital images on a set topic. The images are then reviewed at a subsequent club night and voted on to select the winner (who gets a round of applause and our heartfelt admiration).
