Outdoor programme gives competitive focus

Climbers at Sunset, Almscliff Crag
by Ian Reagan
Knaresborough Camera Club’s outdoor season is well under way with members building up their competition portfolios with images from photoshoots around the district.

So far, the club has visited the river and canal at Boroughbridge, Staveley nature reserve and a scrapyard for commercial vehicles at Bishop Thornton. On the sports front, members have been capturing the action of the climbers at Almscliff Crag and time trial cyclists at Harrogate’s Pennypot Lane and Tockwith aerodrome.

Chairman Richard Bryant said: “The outdoor shoots are a great way for members to put into practice what they have learnt during the indoor programme of workshops and presentations. And, of course, they will be thinking about photographs for the competitive season which gets under way in autumn.”

The club chairman believes that the Harrogate district provides a wealth of photographic opportunities. Richard added: “It’s little surprise why so many people visit the area. We have iconic scenery, fabulous buildings and a host of colourful activities and events but the challenge for our camera club members is to present what they see in a different and thought provoking way.”
