This group has restarted in September 2022, led by Linda McGregor.
All members of TPS are welcome to join the meetings.
The group meets in the clubrooms in Howard Street on the second Saturday morning of the month at 10:30am - 12 noon.
Dates for group meetings in 2023-24 are:
At each meeting there will be a review of the previous month's assignment and resulting images. Members will talk about how they achieved their images, give hints and tips on locations, editing, and any equipment used. This will hopefully help the group advance in their photography.
The next month's assignment will be given and members will discuss how they intend to achieve their assignment.
Nature is a vast and wonderful subject and with a monthly assignment we hope to cover a range of topics including - landscapes, geologic formations, water, plants & fungi, trees, birds, insects. We also hope to use different photography styles and processes in some of the assignments, such as macro photography, nature as art, abstracts and black and white photography. Being outdoors is good for the soul and so hopefully members will enjoy these assignments.
The group will be self-supporting with all members being able to contribute ideas and information.
For further information contact Linda McGregor.

Keith Hildreth notes: Larry, John and I went to Bempton Cliffs on Tuesday 18th July. We left at 7.30 am arriving at 10.30.
On arrival we went through the R S P B shop and made our way to the cliffs. A Short Eared Owl was showing and according to staff this was the first sighting for a while. Blue sky, very warm and the wind was strong enough to hold the Gannets up. As well as the Gannets there were Guillemots, Razorbills, Kittiwakes and lots of Puffins this time.
We had an excellent day and arrived home at 6.45pm having travelled 230 miles altogether.
Keith notes: Four members, David and Wendy Pratt, John McGuiness, myself and friend Pete made our way to Seahouses for a 9.30 departure on Glad Tidings 4 along with 56 others. The weather was perfect, sea calm, sunny but not too bright. Not long into our journey we were informed that a pod of dolphins was in the vicinity and in no time we saw them, which after visiting the Farnes for 35 years was a first for me. After a while sea fret came in but then cleared. We managed to land on both Staple and Innner Farne for 2 hours and 2.5 hours respectively. We returned to Seahouses at 4.15pm after a very enjoyable day.
