The 2016-17 programme at the Ribblesdale Camera Club has to be the most interesting to date.
The club is now into its fourth week of the new season and members were invited to show their submissions.
Almost all pictures from the North West were on the theme of the countryside and farming and provided the backdrop for an enjoyable evening. This was followed by the Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union folio. These were very high quality prints, with many featuring wildlife and of high standard as would be expected from an area which includes not only Lancashire and Cheshire, but also Manchester and Liverpool. There were two prints from Ribblesdale selected, both from Chairman Steve Proctor, "Sparrowhawk and Kill" and "Idol".
At the next meeting, members will be asked to show three related prints or projections, for discussion with no judging. The following week will be competition for digital projections with an invited judge. The rest of the season will feature regular talks from invited lecturers.
Meetings are at Grindleton Pavillion at 7:30pm on any Tuesday between now and the beginning of May. Potential new members may try a few evenings before deciding to join.
