Photography Showcase 3 per week limit
« on: April 15, 2018, 06:10:31 pm »
Hey all don't know if anyone would be interested in a thread of this nature, but I find myself without a decent trip report or reason to share photos quite often so thought a thread for us who like to show off may be just the thing......with a weekly limit for TOR ;)

To kick off bumped in to MatthewJC who was leading a group around Cwmorthin at the weekend and he asked to let him know how the shot came out. Here you go Matt

That is a cracking shot. I work in there myself a couple of times a week and never get tired of taking pictures of Cwm, but that is the best view of that chamber I've seen. Lovely picture.
One from me of the same MatthewJC in the same mine last week.

Craven had a cracking club meet down Lancaster Hole last weekend. Several trips were made by its members with everyone having a great time.
I cannot take credit for this superbly lit photo of 'Bob's Boss'  in the upper series as this was taken by CPC member Simon Parker.


However, great thread to start Mark...Most of my photo's are just snaps that try and capture the spirit of a club meet..however, if by accident I come up with something half decent, I'll continue the thread.

Nice Tommy,

looking forward to seeing more. Let me know if you get a micro 4/3 would be interested to hear how you get on with it. Sure is lighter than hauling a dslr around. Will have a play with mine over the coming weeks, been great as a video camera but haven't played with it for photo's yet.

Cheers Mark, a photo-mate has set me on to looking at Fujis as their current crop are very nice, I'm very impressed with some of his high-ISO shots - you'd never know compared to a G11!

A couple from Saturday, SUSS had an excellent training weekend staying at the TSG with NUCC and ICCC.
There were plenty of people on good long SRT trips, surveying, bolting and rigging, and more...

Here's one of a little visited bit of Ogof Craig a Ffynnon. Focus could have been better but I found this place intriguing as you could really get a feel for how the nature of the chamber had changed over large periods of time as you noticed small details such as fresh calcite deposition over muddied formations.

Feels like forever since I've been in Dan yr ogof. Fantastic day spent playing with other members of The Dudley at the weekend. Here the beautiful Cloud Chamber, but the highlight was visiting Rotten Stone Aven, definitely a collectors piece!

Sorry, I got interrupted and had to abandon my computer. I was going to continue that we didn't leave the poor thing down there, but a member of our party, who happened to be a vet, rigged up a makeshift harness and we pulled her (the sheep, not the vet) out, and off it trotted, happy as Larry. Oddly enough, as we were organizing things, another party came along and pitched in; it also included a vet, and, indeed, our party included a shepherd – so the poor thing was in good hands.

At the request of Pegasus, here are a couple from a trip into OFD1 at the weekend, the first is by The Column at the end of Column Passage and the second is from the other side of the duck that leads to The Eagle's Nest.
Unfortunately, there was a fair amount of camera shake, so I think I may need to return with a tripod.
