Peter George, president of the Brechin Photographic Society, welcomed their first guest speaker of the season - Alex Milne, a geophysicist and a member of the Royal Photographic Society.

Through his interest in mountain geomorphology Mr Milne has travelled to Nepal capturing dramatic images while climbing in the Himalayas.

Inspired by the work of Ansel Adams, many of his most atmospheric images were shot in black and white using a large format camera to give sharp focus and a wide tonal range.

Mr Milne presented a series of colourful portraits depicting some the characters he encountered in Nepal which can be seen at www.mountain-photography.net

The club members have held their first competition of the year when they submitted photographs that best reflected the title ‘Action’. It was judged by Douglas Anderson. Winning images were: ‘Sisterly Love’ by Susan Mclachlan in the beginners’ category, ‘Ace Andy’ by Pam Drever in the intermediate category; and ‘Riding the Wave’ by James Anderson in the advanced category.

The group meets every Tuesday in St Andrew’s Hall and new members are always welcome. For further information see www.brechinphotographicsociety.org
