Pictures paint a thousand words

A picture can paint a thousand words – or so the saying goes – and this selection of artistic snaps from members of Motherwell Photographic Society certainly emphasises that point.

Club members have been resigned to meeting virtually but the restrictions and lockdown don’t seem to have stifled their artistic skills and they are continuing to capture the world as they see it through their lenses., as you can see from the selection below:

At the society’s most recent virtual meeting they received a presentation from John Tisley, a member of Dorchester Camera Club and Devon & Dorset Camera Club. He kicked off with a selection of images from a World War Two re-enactment that took place in the village he lives in that was used a staging area for D-Day.

He moved on to images of Finland and Iceland. Both countries can have as little as four hours of sunshine a day and never truly get dark. Members heard how he often spends hours in temperatures as low as minus 20-30 degrees to capture the photographs he wants.
