Last month, 11 members of Tin Can Bay Camera Club attended the Club’s Annual Photography Retreat at Lake Moogerah near Boonah. This was the Club’s fourth annual retreat, with previous retreats being held at the Bunya Mountains, Stanthorpe/Granite Belt and the Sunshine Coast.
Staying in two shared holiday houses, the group visited various locations around the area and captured some stunning photos. Highlights included visiting the Karoomba Lavender Farm and Winery at Mt Alford, and a guided tour with Boonah photographer Des from 26 Lenscape, who took us to some of his favourite locations around the local area.
Retreat participants also took part in workshops which explored the techniques involved in water drop and ink splash photography.
Evenings were spent gathered around the holiday house’s back yard fire pit, enjoying drinks and nibbles, and talking photography. As usual, all who went along enjoyed the week immensely and look forward to the 2018 retreat at a destination to be decided. Happy snapping!
The Tin Can Bay Camera Club’s next meeting: 7pm, Wednesday June 21 at TCB Library. See more images at: www.tincanbaycameraclub.wix.com/tcb-camera-club
