Members showed their photographs from the Exton outing evening on May 7th, with each commenting on their own photos; why they had chosen that particular view and how they felt it had turned out.
The themes for this meeting , Flora and Fauna plus Signs of the Zodiac were displayed over the coffee break and allowed for plenty of discussion time.
