The venue is The Black Rabbit at Arundel which I’m sure most of you know.  Please note the slightly later start than usual because it doesn’t open until 11.00.  This does not preclude you from arriving earlier and doing some photography of course.  There is ample subject matter with the river immediately adjacent and you can walk in either direction alongside it.  The forecast isn’t too bad…..a little bit if sunshine perhaps and light cloud, but dry and not cold so you should be able to sit outside if you wish.  For those with more time to spare after the coffee bit there are the Wetlands and Swanbourne Lake very close by.

the RSPB Visitor Centre Pulborough at Wiggonholt. The cafe isn’t the best sort of arrangement regarding the ‘coffee bit’ as we can’t put tables together. However it looks as though it will be dry if not that warm, so if we wrap up we might be able to sit outside? As regard photography, apart from the RSPB reserve, Wiggonholt Common is an attractive area and it’s fungi season; I’ve been seeing quite a few whilst dog walking. Here’s hoping Andy is able to come as I’m sure he will be very well informed as to what to look for and where to go! I’m sure that being so local you will all be only too familiar with this location but just in case it’s:

Where is it?

Located approximately 2 miles/3.2 km from Pulborough village. Follow the A283 towards Storrington. The reserve is located on the right- hand side.

Meeting Report: Critique


Jane Coward

The November get together is next Wednesday 1st at 10.30. Our venue is Slindon Forge Cafe where we are ‘booked in’. To that end if I could get some idea of numbers it would be appreciated, just so that I can give them some idea, but please don’t feel under any sort of pressure so to do.

Following coffee, taking pictures of pumpkins should be available in the village. If that doesn’t float your boat then the NT area Park Wood in Park Lane is just down the road.

Jane Coward

We will meet at Squires Garden Centre at Washington, which is ‘on the doorstep’ for most of us, so virtually no travelling time at this busy time of time of year.

Coffee can be followed by some Christmas shopping plus shots of things festive, it looks as though there is a lot to choose from.


Christmas Festivities.



Jane Coward

In view of the first Coffee Club of 2018 following on the heels of all the seasonal jollifications, it will be a restful, low key affair, on the doorstep, so not too difficult to fit into your social whirl. Thus, Costas in Mill Square is our venue on Wednesday January 3rd 2018 at 10.30. It will be good to catch up and discover to whom Father Christmas has been particularly generous, so don’t hesitate to bring along and brandish new cameras, lenses etc!! We can all then rejoice/drool at your good fortune!


Buddy Pairs (details to follow).

Meeting Report: Third competition


Viveca Koh FRPS

Viveca Koh is a self-taught Fine Art photographer, with a special fascination for small details, for lost, abandoned, poignant and generally broken objects, and also for darkness contrasting with light, both in a physical and emotional sense. Her photographs are well worth seeing.

This talk encompasses her photographic development over the past three years, which has progressed at a fairly rapid rate following a slightly slower but life-long love and practise of photography.

Jane Coward

We will meet at the Jungle Tea Room at The Big Plant Nursery at Ashington/Wiston. The weather threatens cloud but according to the BBC the clouds won’t be crying, so a walk round the nursery with or without your camera could be interesting and you might even be tempted to make an addition to your garden so don’t forget to put the roof rack on or bring the trailer, actually they do deliver!


One Image, many results. Everyone is given an image and two weeks to do whatever they like to it. Images are then presented and discussed.

Entries to be submitted for 4th Competition


Jane Coward

We are meeting at the Architectural Plants cafe at North Heath at 10.30. The weather looks to be pretty grim but never mind, there may be dryish spells when we can have a look round and may be take some shots, and coffee, cake and a natter are the main items on the agenda.

Janet Brown

I am hoping to run a photoshoot next Tuesday morning in Littlehampton, weather permitting. 

If it is going to be wet, I will probably rearrange to Friday. 

Plan is to meet at 10.30 in Arun Parade BN17 5LL, and look at the amusement arcade, funfair, seafront, river frontage, longest bench, possibly along to East Beach Cafe... Finishing with a cup of tea or lunch at the Harbour Kitchen (or Galley Restaurant).

We will not be walking long distances, so this is suitable for all. 

Bring your camera and it's manual if you want some help working something out. Tripods probably not required. We will try and get some ICM ideas for the Flickr group!

Parking along Arun Parade is free for unlimited time up to 1st April, but maybe we won't stay that long! I have checked the signs there. Otherwise, there is Sea Road (same postcode) car park just behind the small lake, but this is £3 for 2 hours, £7 over 2 hours.

Wear warm clothing and gloves.

Let me know if you are planning to come, so we don't leave you behind!

All welcome, members, guests and non-members. 

Peter Whieldon

Peter Whieldon is coming to give a talk on wildlife photography with an emphasis on small animals.

He is hoping to bring a couple of owls to the meeting and there may be a photo opportunity so take a camera just in case. I emphasise there is no guarantee for taking photos.
