Our members have been making the most of the lovely summer weather and have recently enjoyed visits to Worcester Cathedral and Snowshill Lavender.
A group of enthusiastic members found that Worcester Cathedral gave plenty opportunities for working with challenging interior lighting conditions and provided us with some stunning architectural and creative artistic images. Afterwards, there was time to chat and compare our photographs in the Cloister Cafe.
Snowshill Lavender proved a good photographic venue which was an alternative to the poppies at Blackstone Farm. The poppies had arrived early this year and were past their best by the date of our outing. The lavender however was magnificent and the colours were stunning. There were bees and butterflies to photograph too - if you were quick enough! Meadow flowers had been planted across the hillside which contrasted beautifully with the purple lavender. We were a small select group on that day and the cream teas are to be recommended in the farm cafe. You could even buy lavender scones and lavender ice-cream!
The next DSPS outing is to photograph butterflies in Monkwood, a Worcestershire Wildlife site, on Sunday 3rd August, meeting there at 3pm.
