Synopsis of 13th January’s meeting

After welcoming a new member (Sue S)- Roger, our Chair gave an update covering current news and upcoming events. Roger told us that one of our members, Barbara Wilkinson, sadly passed away last week. Then C&HVPS kicked off the New Year with a wonderful evening of landscape photography by our own member (for many years) Stephen Elliott.  A master of sunrises and sunsets, and unperturbed by the rain “siling it down“, Stephen gave us an authoritative and instructive illustration of how to manage the light to capture stunning images of North Wales, Anglesey and the Lake District.

2021 YearBook A final reminder that each C&HVPS paid-up member for 2021 is invited to submit a single image for the 2021 YearBook.  It could be one of the photos selected for the annual exhibition, or it could be some other image.  The only constraint is that it should have been taken between 1st January and 31st December 2021.  So if you haven’t already done so, please send your photos to Roger by 16th January 2022.

February Meeting Our next meeting – on 10th February – will be the Society’s AGM. Followed by images that our new Chair – Keith Brown FRPS – will show to entertain us.  It’s too early to say whether we’ll be able to meet face-to-face or have to continue on Zoom.  In the meantime, we are asking for members to consider taking an active role in the running of the Society. Our Chair will be asking for nominations in the near future.  

Here’s a synopsis of Roger’s opening presentation, covering club news and upcoming events:
