What's On...April?

ICM Loxhore Bluebells: Vicky Dyson

Spring is in the air and it's time to get out and have some fun with our cameras on Monday evenings. Our summer programme outlines where we will be going each week for April through to September. The monthly 'what's on' blog articles provide extra detail; where to meet, links to creative resources, etc. Additional links to articles and videos for different genres of photography can be found here.

We are running our summer fun challenges again this year. This months topic is Architecture. Submit your images via photo entry by 30th April.

Thanks to Amanda Smith for the beautiful harbour image shown as our cover photo this month, Vicky Dyson for the ICM bluebells image above. Check out the gallery below for a few images that were taken on previous club outings and represent this months locations and genres.


8th April - Yelland Wrecks at 18:30

Yelland Wrecks in North Devon is a hidden gem nestled between Instow and Fremington. This quaint village, part of the Fremington parish, offers a unique blend of natural beauty and historical intrigue.

The Yelland Wrecks, remnants of a bygone era, lie on the sandy shores near the jetty of the former East Yelland Power Station. These rusting relics provide a stark contrast against the serene backdrop of the River Taw, offering a plethora of opportunities for both amateur and seasoned photographers to capture stunning compositions of texture, time, and tide.

As you explore the area, don't miss the chance to photograph the Bronze Age megalithic site near Lower Yelland Farm. Although now obscured by silt, the site's mystical past adds an air of mystery to your images. With the Tarka Trail and South West Coast Path nearby, Yelland promises captivating landscapes and historical wonders.

Meeting at 18:30, parking at Sandhills carpark Instow, high tide will be a 18:50.


15th April - Ilfracombe Street Photography

Another top location for the monthly theme of tourism; lots of people for street photography, harbour life, etc. Our club member George Brown has a fantastic array of images he has captured of the architecture in Ilfracombe over the years, which he edits with a vibrant painterly effect. There are some great spots to explore, such as the main harbour, the park. the small beach next to the Landmark Theatre, and the tunnels beach. And of course plenty of options for refreshments.


22nd April - Westward Ho!

This seaside village has it all - you'll be spoilt for choice between beach, surf, architecture, and street photography. If you do fancy a bit of street photography and feel a bit shy, check out this video from Brian Lloyd-Duckett. It has some top tips on street photography in small towns, including examples from a small seaside town in North Wales. Meet 6:30pm. There are various small car parks in the village, including the slipway (EX39 1LL). The machine takes cash and also uses the Ringo app.


29th April - Lynton Valley of the Rocks

There's rocks! And there's goats! Evening challenge - capture a quirky goat image! The scenery here is breathtaking. You can walk high or low to enjoy the views, depending how energetic you feel. There is a cafe that closes at 5pm, after that there are hostelries in the town for refreshements.
