|Clevedon Pier visit led by Caroline Wright - 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."

|Photographing Warblers - led by David Wilkinson - 2 & 3 June 2022|
|Langford Lakes - photos by Caroline Wright & Dave Gray|
|Saturday 28 May 2022.10 members met at Langford Lakes this morning 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.
|West Woods - photos by Robert Harvey & Jen Skjoldbro|
|Sunday 1 May 2022 West Woods is a must visit place for the bluebells, and the wood quickly becomes an ocean of bluebells. One of the DCC members brought a special visitor named Berty as a model which made it fun and nice change (and challenge to photograph) to your normal bluebell pictures. It did require lots of treats! The members enjoyed catching up over warm tea at Food Gallery once again.|
|Savernake Forest - photos by Dave Eagle & Jen Skjoldbro|
|Sunday 10 April 2022 Led by Dave Eagle and Gerald Clarke. An early morning in Savernake Forest, one of our members Dave Eagle, showed the rest of us some of the majestic trees that lives in the forest, that he often photographs. Dave also offered advise on how to best photograph these majestic’s, and to make it all better, we were fortune to have a little mist, which gives woodland photography that little extra. The members enjoyed catching up over warm tea at Food Gallery.|
|Lacock - photos by Bridget Codrington, Dave Eagle & Jen Skjoldbro|
|Sunday 20 March 2022 Led by Bridget Codrington , Lynda Croft and Jennifer Skjoldbro to some hidden gems in the picturesque village of Lacock. We were lucky again with the weather when we went to Lacock for our next outing; blue sky with not a cloud in sight. The Lacock Abbey looked gorgeous with the spring blue sky. The village had Easter decorations up and the DCC members enjoyed a nice warm cup of tea at the Stables Café.|
|Dorset Coast - photos by Jen Skjoldbro, Heidi Massey & Dave Gray|
|5 February 2022 The clubs second outing and what more beautiful place could we ask for other than Lulworth Cove with the recently re-opened Fossil Forest. The weather was on our side, albeit a little windy, we were able to enjoy our lunch in the sun. Dave Gray took us to the Fossil Forest and to Kimmeridge Bay, both carefully planned so the tide would not catch us out.|
|Bradford on Avon - photos by Dave Eagle, Caroline Wright & Jen Skjoldbro|
|23 January 2022 The clubs first outing of the year, which was also the first outing after 2 years due to the pandemic. It was an amazing day out and Bradford-on Avon is a great place for photography with lots of opportunities and if you are lucky, you might see the famous resident of Bradford-on-Avon, the one and only Mr. Kingfisher|
