Thirteen stalwart club members left Kirkcaldy, at 8am, this morning looking forward to the first club outing of the new season. We traveled to Edzell in Angus, where we re-grouped. Where's Cathy, Wanda and Jan? Of course, they were in the local hotel having lattès and bacon rolls. Martin was dispatched to seek them out, which was a mistake, as he stayed for breakfast, just to be sociable you understand. Escapees rounded up, we moved on to Gannochy Bridge going through the blue door down to the water's edge. Rough water here with rocks covered in green moss, which reflected the light beautifully. An array of shots were obtained, using fast and slow shutter speeds, to capture the fast flowing water. An enjoyable couple of hours was spent. We then took the road to Loch Lee, which followed the river and stopped at the Rocks of Solitude. The fast flowing water, with rapids, was impressive. Local canoeists were practicing, which made for some good action shots. The weather was kind to us, with the sun breaking through at times, really mild for the time of year. After some lunch we headed onto Loch Lee, where we spent the rest of the day. There was a spot of walking then the members demonstrated a wide photographic interpretation of the landscape. With fading light the loch, ancient churchyard and surrounding landscape made for some challenging photography. We began heading for home about 5pm. It was a really good day, with lots of fun and banter. Looking forward to another outing, to the Holy Island, next month .
