    We have booked Malham Village Hall for this visit, on the basis that if the weather is fine we can use it as a base to get out and take photographs and if not then at least we can be indoors. There are facilities for making hot drinks, so bring sandwiches for lunch, and members can choose to stay on during the afternoon if they wish.

    There will be a small charge to cover the cost of hiring the hall.

    It's almost mid-summer so you might like to take advantage of the evening light to tgake photographs around Settle. Alternatively there will be a "Camera Clinic" for members who might wish to learn more about their cameras.

    Gallery: "A Camera Technique". This is all about making a photograph which is out of the ordinary but achieved totally in-camera. So no Photoshop trickery, just  camera trickery such as use of long or short shutter speeds, camera movement, or any other creative way of using a camera you can think of.

    We've been here before, on a glorious hot sunny day, so how will it be this time? Whatever, it's the kind of place which will be well worth a second visit, whether to explore a corner you missed last time, to try again for a shot you wish you'd taken before, or even just because the light and weather are almost bound to be different. And if you haven't been before then now's your chance.
