Judge: Keith Gibson

09 Oct 2018 Coffee Group - Pulborough Brooks RSPB - Fungi

Checking through events of last year, I noticed that the Fungi Walks were in October and we went on 10th October. The corresponding date this year is the 9th…. so I think we’ll do the same again on that date. However, it may be that the fungi are late this year, due to the ‘extended’ summer, so I’ll be checking the news from Pulborough. Two weeks later, (23rd Oct) we will be looking for autumn colours somewhere – I’m thinking ‘Winkworth Arboretum’, but I’m open to new locations. The most interesting autumn colours are from ‘ornamental’ trees, so that’s probably only Winkworth, Sheffield Park or Nymans….. all NT properties. These two locations take us up to early November, and possibly Horsham.

06 Nov 2018 Coffee Club Carat's Cafe, Southwick Beach

Back to a regular haunt…… Sue Lambert may be setting a mini Photohunt. If you haven’t been here before, check out the postcode online (BN41 1WD). For most people, driving from the west, it’s a drive along to the end of the harbour at Portslade, then double back westward on the opposite side of the harbour, beside the beach. Alternatively, parking can be found in Southwick, then cross the A259 and cross the locks toward the power station. Check a map first (though I’m sure Google Maps are having problems now).

Ken will discuss any photographic topic you like – but currently it’s an empty page! Good – mindful – photography?

Beyond that, I’m sure Ken can decide what else to talk about…..Very much a discussion rather than a lecture.
