Severn Beach trip – Sunday 30th July,

Good evening,

Sorry I haven’t been in touch about the summer events much, its been a hectic summer with family events on Sundays when we were due to meet. I did make it to the Cotswold Wildlife Park but didn’t see any others there. Hopefully some of you did attend as it turned out to be a great day out and I took approx. 500 Photos during the day!

For all those that are attending next week (weather permitting) can I suggest that we meet in Severn bridge near the bridge on the waters edge around 6pm to have a wander around and find a good composition that you are happy with. If any of you need help, give me a shout as I will be there to lend a hand and get some photos myself (fingers crossed).
Sunset is 09:01, but this will be behind the Welsh hills, so the best light on the bridge should be around 8 – 8:30pm.
Low tide is scheduled for 07:00pm approx. so the mud should look fresh and pristine for hopefully some nice reflections of the bridge with its lights on in the setting sun!
Hope to see some of you there and keep your fingers crossed for a decent evenings photography!
