Field Trip Orton Bradley Park

Field Trip Orton Bradley Park

The last field trip of the year was at Orton Bradley Park, not far away from Christchurch. We had to wait until lambing season was over to be able to use the tracks, but I think most people did not get far anyway. There were heaps of photo opportunities, and I think we all had a great day out.

Some images from the trip:

PSNZ Judging workshop and inhouse judging night

Another eventful week and weekend lies behind us. It was all about assessing images and how to do it. First we had another round of inhouse judging on Tuesday night (club evening), following for some of us (actually, quite a lot of us) this weekend with a full-on PSNZ Judging Workshop weekend.

I think the workshop was very successful in driving home some key messages, and it gave us a renewed appreciation of what the judges do for our club when they assess our images. Well done, Bruce and Shona, I think you did a great job!

Eventful week

Eventful week

This week is full of events for the club. We already had our Midwinter Brunch last Sunday after a lovely Sunrise trip to Godley Head. Tuesday was club night with the presentation of the 3rd Open Club Competition results (thank you Julia Home for assessing over 100 images for us!), the awarded images are in the Gallery section here: https://www.newbrightonphotoclub.org.nz/galleries/gallery/3rd-open-2019/

Next Sunday is another Field Trip in the CBD area, details to be announced.

Stay warm!

Field Trip ‘Autumn Colors’ – Botanical Garden Christchurch

Field Trip ‘Autumn Colors’ – Botanical Garden Christchurch

We had a wonderful field trip day in the Botanical Garden, and some managed to get up early’o’clock for the sunrise. Those who did were rewarded with a glorious sunrise (all my pictures, sorry, it’s easier than to ask people to provide images).

about 6:45am at the Victoria Lake

But that was not all the gardens had to offer, the members had a great time taking pictures of autumn colors as much wide angle or macro as needed. some busy bees or birds were also welcomed subjects. Great day with a good turnout!

Next Tuesday is judging of the 2nd Open, see you in the club!
