A Few Words From Our Chairman

Thank you for visiting our website. Here you will find full details of our Programme, a large selection of images from our members as well as a weekly blog report of our meetings. We meet at Whitchurch-on-Thames Village Hall every Wednesday evening at 8.00 pm from September to June and additional Practical Group Meetings take place on Thursday evenings.

This season’s Programme includes our usual regular competitions for colour prints, monochrome prints and digital projected images and we also take part in a number of competitions against other Camera Clubs in the Chilterns Association.

In addition to this, I have booked some top level speakers who are experts in their field of photography. We will be learning about the development of mirrorless cameras, the world of drone photography and also abandoned and derelict historic buildings amongst many other photographic subjects.  As well as that, we will be transported to many exotic locations as the season progresses and we will be viewing some of the finest Natural History photography currently available.

Many of our own Club members will also feature throughout the season with a wonderful varied selection of presentations and we also offer help and guidance for all photographers at our Practical Photography Group meetings.

It all looks very exciting and, provided we have no further problems with the virus pandemic, is set to further enhance our reputation as one of the leading Camera Clubs in the area.  I hope you will enjoy all there is on offer during 2020-21.

Italy, Exploring Venice and Sicily plus Travels From Vancouver, The Rockies To Vancouver Island

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

What a superb evening we had on 12th Feb! Two of our members – Eric Needs and David Belcher took us away from the storms presently sweeping the country to Italy and Canada respectively.

In the first half Eric took us first of all to the warmth and sunshine of Sicily (what a change from here at the moment!). Beautiful sun-drenched scenes of countryside, coast and towns. Whitewashed buildings – and of course the spectre of volcanic activity! He gave us a geographical overview, so we were able to see the fault lines in the earth’s crust and where the area’s active volcanos are. We also learned much about Sicily’s turbulent history from its ancient Greek and Roman buildings onwards which illustrate Sicily’s strategic position in the Mediterranean. What superb scenery all over the island though!  Then it was up through Italy to the beautiful city of Venice with its canals and fine buildings. Good to see images of places like St Mark’s Square before the recent flooding! The visit also took us across the water to colourful Burano with its narrow canals and brightly painted houses.

Then in the second half David whisked us over the Atlantic and North America to Vancouver. Here we saw the fine buildings old and new in this bustling city – and then there was its coastline– the busy port itself with both cargo and cruise ships as well as the coastal scenery on Vancouver Island. And not to forget the seaplanes taking tourists around the area.  David also took us inland to the surrounding mountains where we experienced snow – with some challenging driving conditions - and yes – there was the wildlife too - including of course bears!

Very difficult to encapsulate all we saw and experienced this evening in a few lines – but it was great to (virtually) visit two such different places – thank you so much Eric and David. We hope to see more of your travels in the not-too-distant future!
