This page shows some of our pictures from the various outings the group have had in 2019
Battlesbridge 10 May 2019
Six of us made the short trip to Battlesbridge on a lovely sunny morning. We spent a couple of hours photographing the river, boats, the old mill buildings, and a guy fishing on the riverbank who probably didn't realise he was being immortalised in many digital images! We also wandered around the many antique shops photographing several of the interesting items on display. A couple of us also posed in the stocks on the village green! As usual the morning was rounded off with coffee and cake in a pleasant cafe.
Beeleigh Abbey Gardens and Beeleigh Lock 19 July 2019
Ten of us took the opportunity to visit Beeleigh Abbey Gardens on one of it's open days. The weather forecast was for rain but we arrived to sunny skies and a warm morning. We spent awhile walking around the gardens which offered fantastic opportunities for photographs, then stopped for a welcome cup of coffee and cake in the tea room. Five of us then decided to walk down to the river and lock despite the rather threatening sky. Sure enough one we reached the furthest point away from the car park, the heavens opened and we all had a good soaking, but still enjoyed seeking out some excellent photo shots!
Hythe Quay and Maldon Promenade 13 September 2019
A group of us met at Hythe Quay and once again we were lucky to have a warm and sunny morning. The vapour trails from various passing aeroplanes made for a very interesting sky, as you can see from some of the photos below. This is of course a much photographed area of Maldon so we endeavoured to take shots that showed something a bit different from the norm. This is our final photoshoot for 2019.
