Fermoy Camera Club returned once again to the club ethos of having Fun with Photography.with a very long and enjoyable day out savouring some of the delights of County Limerick.
The trip was organised by our hard working Outings Group with the added bonus of our local guide and club member Martin Wall.
After departing Fermoy our first stop was the historic town of Killmallock where we explored the well preserved historical sites.
Following a quick re-fueling stop it was once again back on the road for our next destination Lough Gur where the compulsory group shot was organised after much laughter and messing about. The group then split up to capture their own impressions of the area. Despite the size of the lough it was rumoured that one group rang another to complain they were in their photo despite being almost a quarter mile away!!??!!
After a number of hours the early birds left for home while the rest of the group continued to visit and photograph a Megalithic Tomb and ancient stone circle before heading for an early dinner.
After our appetites had been satisfied it was decided since it was only 5.30pm it was too early to go home, so off we went to Griston Bog for some more photography.
Finally we returned to Fermoy where it was decided one more stop was needed to discuss the day's events.
A great day out but we will have to wait for our next outing which is Fun Friday(in a few days tme!!)
Thanks to all who turned up to launch our casual Friday evening shoots in Glenabo woods last night. It turned out to be a fun, informative and refreshing evening with great friends. It was a great success with more laughter than photography and we will be looking forward to the next one. So hopefully even more can make it next Friday evening (venue to be decided).
The idea behind "Fun Fridays" is to give members the oppurtunity to get together to share experiences/information/skills in a casual friendly atmosphere while including some Fun with Photography. It is planned to run these evenigs until the evenings close in again.
Ideas for venues welcome so if you have an area in mind you think might suit please contact us
