Newsletter 19th November 2019

Hello Members

November 19th meeting report

This week we were blessed to have Graham share his photography and his stories of his travels that have taken him all over the globe. Starting with his journey to Antarctica, the beauty of that place was breathtaking I cannot possibly begin to imagine what it must have been like to visit. With every image presented many struggled to contain their amazement and wonder with the quiet sounds of “wow” and awe, the mountains, the ice and the wildlife Graham truly captured the magic of this remote part of the world.

For the second half Graham took us to Zambia quite the contrast to Antarctica but amazing and beautiful all the same every image again met with “wow”. Graham shared his stories of this adventure and of how close he was able to get, even casually strolling past an elephant on his way to get his dinner.

Graham shared amusing stories, interesting facts and answered questions throughout his presentation. Graham’s love of nature and experiencing the world was clear to see, and being the gentleman he is they are lucky to have him visit. Graham I think I enjoyed your evening more than any other I have been to and is impossible to truly express how good it was in a newsletter, I am sure I speak for everyone when I say thank you so very much and we look forward to the next one.
