Glendalough Photographic Outing and League Competition Judging

There’s a club outing to Glendalough this coming Sunday, October 23rd.  An early start, we’re meeting in the carpark of Molloy’s pub between 9.00am and 9.30am.  If that’s a little early you can always make your own way to Glendalough and meet up with us there!  Prepare for all weathers, dress warmly and bring a packed lunch.  Don’t forget your camera and tripod! Glendalough offers lots for an enthusiastic photographer: a graveyard, monastic ruins and a round tower set in a beautiful valley with the famous two lakes which gives the area its name.  A good stretch of the legs along the upper lake will bring you to the ruins of an abandoned lead miners’ village.  Plenty there to get those creative juices flowing! Next Tuesday, October 25th is our Monthly League Competition judging night!  Looking forward to seeing your images!  Good luck to everyone who entered! Looking ahead to Tuesday, November 1st…  We have our monthly One-Shot competition.  Won by Scott MacBride last month, the theme for November is Motion and is open to your own interpretation.  Entries should be printed about 10 x 8 inches and do not have to be mounted.
