Another Photography Holiday in Menorca has almost come to a close – but what a fantastic week it’s been. Apart from the very first day when we had a shower or two, the weather has been lovely and the light everything a photographer could wish for.
Many hundreds of photographs have been taken during our photo excursions to some of the most fascinating locations on this lovely island. Yesterday we visited La Mola – the old fortifications at the entrance to Mahon Harbour.
We get special permission to go to some of the areas in this extraordinary location that are normally closed to visitors and this always produces a crop of very fine images.
I’ve included a short video (beow) of the group at work in one of these special places. Apart from the clicking of camera shutters and the scrape of tripods being set up – notice how quiet everyone is while they are concentrating on their photography.
I’ve said before that I do not get much chance to take my own photographs during these Photography Holidays – I’m kept far too busy coaching everyone else, but I did manage to snap the image below during our visit to La Mola – I just could not resist the wonderful textures and colours of the subject.
Tonight will be are farewell party and presentation of the Light Monkey Awards. No, there’s nothing at all serious about these coveted awards. Members of the group can earn an award for just about anything.
For instance I am trying to decide whether to award David a prize for his animated nightly after-dinner readings of the Archers summaries after downloading them from the internet for the benefit of Norene and Yvonne. It’s going to a difficult decision.
I’ll post the results very soon when Photography Holiday in Menorca finally comes to a close on Friday.
