Re: March Meeting

The 3 shots I had for this evenings meeting -

The street lamp most will have seen before.
The sun dial was captured on an Autumn day out to Aldeburgh
The tree image was taken in the walnut orchard close to my home in Boxted - again as part of my course.

Will stay in touch.

Best wishes

Re: March Meeting

Michele - All 3 are super shots but the shadowy family image is great.

Phil - wonderful images and I agree with Robert the shot of Corinne is superb.
