Synopsis of C&HVPS meeting 9th April 2015

The unseasonably warm weather and the chance to listen to Karen Frankel give her illustrated ‘Coast to Coast’ presentation packed the hall with members and guests. Indeed it’s a long time since I recall that all of the stacked chairs had been taken from their stands – a sign of the popularity of Karen and her work!

My account of the evening includes a few local images, this time without even a snowflake in sight!

Derwent 79Our Chairman, Jason welcomed everyone and reminded members about the evening we’d recently enjoyed at The Angler’s Rest, Bamford, when a number of members displayed their DPI’s. David Allwood has suggested that the next member’s digital projection evening at The Angler’s Rest could be on May 18th. Please contact David or Jason if you’d like to attend.

Keith reminded members that the next meeting is the time for members to hand in their annual competition prints, along with digital images of each entry. These images should be about 1Mb in size and should be either passed to Keith on a memory stick, or a CD/DVD or email to Keith. If any member has problems resizing the images please contact me (Ian). In the meantime advice on the competition and the rules of the competition are shown at:

Karen Frankel, who lives locally, is a talented professional photographer, and spent 90 minutes speaking to and showing images she took when writing her book entitled Coast to Coast. Having seen the book and listening to Karen’s presentation, I heard a number of members vowing to traverse this beautiful coast to coast walk. But unless you are a seasoned walker, Karen suggested that the walk can be enjoyed by walking different stages at different time of the year.

Keith Brown gave a vote of thanks, remarking how spectacular the evening had been. Keith, using his FRPS skills then briefly outlined how each and every one of Karen’s shots, showed her skill as a truly talented landscape photographer, and that we cannot wait until Karen returns to our club to demonstrate more of her skills.
