Camera Club Outing To Sheffield – Wednesday Evening 17th April 2019, by Peter Mudd
We met at Sheffield Railway Station at around 6.45pm. Some of us started by taking a few photographs around the exciting station approach and the iconic external concourse, after a while we walked over to the canal at Victoria Quays. The early evening light was still quite good when we arrived at the canal so some general images of boats, reflections and canal side scenery were there for the taking. I specifically had my eyes peeled for trams which pass by overhead in the distance – I deliberately wanted the trams to be illuminated but it seemed ages before the sky eventually got darker at around 8.30pm. On reflection I think there were better locations to photograph the trams, however you have to try different things.

Overall I counted at least 15 members who attended, which was a good turnout for our first spring and summer season outing. I know some members tried other Sheffield locations as well as the station and the canal so it will be interesting to see a sample of their images. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening but the ‘proof of the pudding’ will be when we collectively review some of our images at our club critique session on 1st May 2019.
