We were fortunate enough to have Charlie Lee to hand this evening to offer his expert advice on seascape photography. Charlie, who has an intimate knowledge of the beaches in this area, was kind enough to offer up some tips on how best to capture the seas this evening.
Whilst light and tide conditions weren’t the best we nevertheless set about the task enthusiastically, some of us getting seriously wet feet in the process!
Once the light had dissipated we headed back to the hotel whereupon Charlie showed us some slides of photos he has taken at Owenahincha and Long Strand and also some prints. It was a great night, that perfect blend of practical and then aesthetic.
Thanks, Charlie. We’ll be doing it all again in the spring!

A double congratulatory post. First to the camera club as a whole on raising the impressive sum of €1050 for Cancer Connect through our annual exhibition held at the Celtic Ross. This substantial sum was raised by selling raffle tickets on the opening night of the exhibition and then through the subsequent sale of photos exhibited at the hotel.
