We had a wonderful day yesterday with a smashing group of photographers enjoying another fully-booked Photography Workshop at Carlisle Cathedral.
The weather was lovely and created some spectacular light both inside and outside the cathedral.
As always, photographers travelled from far and wide to be with us – special thanks to Janys who was up at 4am to catch the early train from London to Carlisle. I hope she managed a snooze on the return journey. It was also nice to see several photographers local to Carlisle – these included one photographer, Allan, who used to work in the cathedral itself. I noticed he disappeared once or twice during the day, so maybe he knew some special secret corners to photograph – he wouldn’t say.
I have set up a Flickr Group so that the photographers can share some of the images they captured during the day and Martin has already posted some of his pictures. Very good they are, too – he has a very searching eye. I will be putting up some pictures of the group very soon. Flickr Group Carlisle Cathedral
It was good to see some a regular friends joining us again – Anne Hughes – twice on a Menorca Photography Holiday and also Photography Weekend Break, Kirkcudbright. Derek Jones, has also been to Menorca and Kirkcudbright with us, and Janys Lomax, who has also been on a Photography Weekend Break. Anthony Ralph has also been with us before, he came to a Kirkcudbright Weekend Break. Derek has already booked to come on our Photography Cruise to Venice aboard the tall ship, Star Clipper next July.
I’m delighted to say that for the first time in many months, Norene was able to join us for a day. She is now recovering very well after her illness and we hope she will soon be back to full strength. It is because Norene has been so unwell recently that we have been very slow in arranging another Photography Workshop at Carlisle Cathedral. I hope to get something fixed up this coming week. So if you have missed out on this latest workshop perhaps you will be able to join us for the next one.
The situation at Carlisle Cathedral could not be better for photographers. We enjoy the facility of a superb room in the Prior’s Tower in the cathedral grounds; there is an excellent cafe and the staff in the cathedral could not be more helpful – and we have the rare privilege of being allowed to use our tripods for an hour inside the cathedral during the afternoon.
