Outings

2016 was a year filled with an interesting and diverse array of monthly outings. Special thanks to Richard Goldschmidt who was the driving force behind so many of the activities of the past year. We have exciting outings in store for 2017.

Richard Goldschmidt, our outings convener again for this year,  gives thanks to the many members who have come up with suggestions for interesting outings, which were very varied. From this list, he has put together the following proposal for the ten outings in 2017. There will be no outing in July. We encourage all members to make use of the opportunity to share knowledge and experience and improve your photography.

For specific details please consult the Outings diary in the Cape Camera magazine

Date Time Location
Saturday 29th July 9.30 AM Mostert’s Mill
Sunday 20th August Morning Babylonstoren gardens at Spring and during Clivia flowering time
Sunday 17th September Morning Kirstenbosch at the height of flower time
Friday 6th October Evening Sunset and then full moon rise from Signal Hill and City lights
10th to 12th November Weekend West Coast – Velddrift/St Helena Bay vicinity

We shall attempt to adhere to the dates given above, but detailed planning nearer the time may necessitate changes. You are encouraged to enter the outings into your diary now to ensure that you are free to attend. Unfortunately the outings do not line up as well as they did in 2016 with the monthly set themes, but always keep the full year’s themes in mind when attending any outing. Invariably images will become apparent that can be used for a competition theme a few months hence. With most of the outings, we shall endeavour to socialize afterwards with something to eat or drink.

Richard emphasizes that he is open to any further suggestions from members should they want changes to the above programme, or have any other or better idea. Details of each outing will go out in a Snapshot a few weeks before the event.
