In the Herald - It's A walk in the Park

Date Published

For our last mid-week summer photo walk this year, members of Irvine Camera Club headed down to Rozelle Park in Ayr.  As soon as we arrived we had to work quickly because the light was already beginning to go.  It is amazing just how quickly the days have begun to shorten as we move into autumn.  


There are many wooden and stone sculptures in the grounds of the park and these drew the eye and the lenses of some of our members.  The house itself looked splendid in the low sun as it began to sink behind the trees.


After spending less than hour photographing Rozelle House, the gardens and the surrounding parkland we decided we should move down to the harbour in the hope of an interesting sunset.  The long pier at Ayr with its little lighthouse at the end provided strong visual interest against a sky that was beginning to light up just as we arrived.  There were also a few fishermen at the end of the pier catching pollock who were happy to be photographed.


Some of us picked out details in the harbour area while others took a more abstract approach to documenting the area.  Once again, we came away with wide variety of interesting images, some of which you can see here.


The club now moves into its winter season.  We were very pleased to welcome around 40 people to our new meeting room at Irvine Community Sports Club for our annual Open Evening last Tuesday.  The sense of enthusiasm for photography was palpable as we reviewed our summer activities and previewed our exciting upcoming programme of events.


If you have an interest in photography and you would like to join in, please don’t hesitate to get in contact or simply turn up at any of our club nights.  You will be assured of a warm welcome as well as a cuppa and chocky biscuit!   As usual, all our details can be found on our website
