The Art of Composite Photography 8th July

One of the benefits of meetings via Zoom is that we can have “visits” from speakers that we would never be able to invite to physical meetings.We are very fortunate to be able to see award winning photographers Robert & Sharon Prenton Jones this coming Thursday (8th July) – a meeting not to be missed. Β “doors open” 7:30 pm for 8 pm start. Guests and potential new members welcome. Please email chair@morecambecameraclub.co.uk for more details 😊

Sunderland Point

 Tonight (Thursday 27th May) we have our first summer outdoor meeting ar Sunderland Point. The weather forecast is looking ok 🀞
Meet by the toilet block at the far end of the causeway at 7:30 pm. The causeway should be clear until about 11:30 pm – so more than enough time for us.

We’ll make our way from the car park to Old Hall. At that point we may separate, with those who have stout footwear and are happy to walk round the point on the rocky shoreline continuing, while others return to The Lane. We’ll probably all meet up at Sambo’s Grave and the Horizon Line Chamber.

It would be great if we knew who was intending to come along – se if you are coming, please email morecambecameraclub@gmail.com (preferably before 6pm.

Please can anyone who won trophies last year bring them back tonight, so they can be engraved ready for their new owners πŸ˜€ πŸ†Thanks, see you all tonight πŸ˜€

Sunderland point outing 🏝

Thursday 27th May
Our summer programme kicks off with an outdoor evening, meeting at the car parking area by the toilets at Sunderland Point at 7:30. There will probably be two options:

  • walking around the point to the Horizon Line Chamber and back down the Lane – for this you will need stout footware (the path ends at the Hall and the route continues on rocky beach
  • walking to the Hall, then back to walk along the Lane, perhaps meeting others near the “Horizon Line Chamber” and Sambo’s Grave

The weather forecast looks promising (but that can change) – Confirmation on Wednesday or Thursday. Also, it would be good if you could let us know if you areΒ planning to come along.

Low tide next ThursdayΒ is at about 7:30 pm. – so we have 4 hours to get back across the causeway – I don’t think any of us will want to stay that long πŸ™‚

As always new and old members welcome 😊 Hope to see you there.
