Lots of fun is being had in the Northumberland Camera Club with more and more people joining and taking part.

One of the nice things about the club is that people are not just taking pictures, but discussing photographic issues, helping each other, as well as setting and taking part in challenges.

The new Raw Challenge is where folk attempt to develop a deliberately bad picture provided as a raw file.

We’ve also had Where In The World Is This? and Alphabet photography contests.

Dave Henderson is a regular contributor to the club. A really experienced photographer, he has been trying out the wireless control on his Olympus camera, which allows Live View via an app on his iPad.

With his camera on a tripod , he set up the shot and retired to the kitchen.

Dub Devlin was taken with the colours of spring.

You may remember Dave’s Fairyland image from a couple of weeks ago. He has been inspiring others to take photos through glass spheres, which has started a bit of a trend in the group.

David Hunter is new to photography and bought a camera for his Finnish trip to Lapland in February and caught this super shot of the Aurora above this snow scape. Of course, spring is still very much on people’s minds. The yellows of the daffodils have given way to the carpets of purple, these captured by Valarie Seaward.

Meanwhile, Chas Gold was shooting the stream in Bothal Village. I wonder if they all saw each other without knowing it.
