Night photography, Poole

On Friday 15th January myself and several members of Blandford Camera club made their way to Poole for an evening of photography. I didn’t plan it that way but it was cold  but we were all pre-warned with the weather forecast and we were all prepared in various layers of clothing and a rather fetching array of hats.

There was a good group of nine of us in all and six left from Blandford sharing cars and three more joined us when we arrived at the Twin Sails bridge. We arranged to be there ready for the 18.30 lifting and there were a line of photographers with tripods waiting expectantly for the bridge to raise. Unfortunately it was not to be, there was no boat traffic and apparently at that time of night and winter it is on demand. There was still plenty of photography opportunities around the bridge so we spent some time there before moving on to the Quay.

On to the Quay where we stayed for the rest of the evening, taking pictures around the old Customs House and Museum and along the Quay itself. Just after 8 o’clock we all decided we were photographed out and we retired to the Holes Bay Inn for Hot Chocolate with cream and Marshmallows on top and a good natter. I for one enjoyed the evening it is good to be out with others of a like mind and I think we all take away something from these practical evenings.
