Out & About with the Club  
During the summer break the club is still very active. Members have been visiting a variety of places to enjoy taking photographs together & visiting new places.
The latest trip was to Clevedon Pier to photograph the Sunset 0n 30 June.
 "A small group of 3 went to Clevedon Pier on Thursday evening. During June and July the sun sets at the end of the pier, so a trip was planned to coincide with the high tide last week and the best day according to the weather forecast was Thursday. We arrived at Clevedon and watched bands of heavy rain roll in from the direction of Wales and it seemed that photography was not on the cards until 30 minutes before sunset there was a break in the rain and clouds as we all rushed to get out our cameras set up and we were treated to amazing light and colours as the sun set."

10 members met up to photograph the wildlife, birds and invertebrates found at this Wiltshire Wildlife Trust site near Wylye. We were guided by our very own Tim Tapley who shared not only his extensive knowledge of the species found there, but also how to best photograph them. He spent much of the morning helping us to explore the small bugs and insects found on the main path that runs through the site. With his help we found an array of small insects that we would usually have walked past. It was a fantastic experience and I for one have certainly discovered a whole new view of wildlife. We finished the visit with a trip to the Kingfisher Cafe for lunch and cakes.CW
