The group continues to meet at Carnon Downs hall twice a month. Our numbers are slowly growing as more of our regular members feel confident to return to meeting outside again. We have also gained some new members who have seen the pictures included in the newsletter. 

Our 2022 programme is being put together with a mixture of instruction and encouragement to improve our photographic skills. We do try to see as many of our members pictures which should be the prime objective of a photo group.
New members are welcome any time at the hall. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month in the Carnon Downs new hall at 09.30 for a couple of hours with a refreshment break in the middle. Some mornings are totally unscripted when a member asks a question and we all discuss possible answers.

The competition was judged by John Yarrow competition secretary of Truro Camera Club.

He commented that there were many great ideas for showing Cornwall at its best and picking the winning image was not easy.

Field Trips
All field trips are attended at members own risk.
When we visit local attractions they will have carried out their own risk assessments and you are advised to note their recomendations and act accordingly.
On other field trips to the Cornish countryside most of us are aware of trip dangers and uneven ground and the need to wear suitable footwear and clothes to suit the conditions.
Be sensible and safe. Take only photographs and leave only footprints.
