September, 2020 – Spring

July, 2020 – Winter

We had hoped our next meeting would involve a Group outing. But due to the current Covid situation we have decided we still need to do our own photography and meet on Zoom.
The Theme is  – WINTER  2020 .  Everyone is here experiencing Winter either in Melbourne or somewhere in Victoria. 
So lets see what you can come up with to depict Winter.  Iphone photos are fine.  This is more about the challenge and variety of images and ideas than the quality of the photos.
The Zoom review and discussion meeting was held on Friday 31st July.

Some of the images from the meeting are below:

June, 2020 – Close to home

Owing to our social restrictions we have decided the next Scenic Group challenge will be photographs taken in your local area.  Maybe within 5 kms from home, on your local walk or right in your own back yard, wherever you can find an interesting subject.  

A Zoom meeting was held on Friday the 12th June at 7.30 pm to discuss and analyse the images. A selection of the images is shown below………

4th May 2019 – Puffing Billy/Emerald Lake 

From the organisers…. Our recent outing to The Dandenongs was certainly a challenge. The Dandenongs weather threw everything at us and we persevered and had a good day. Well done all. I hope everyone enjoyed the outing and managed to get some photos they were happy with.
The follow up meeting is scheduled for Friday 7th June at home of Pam Rixon.

3rd March 2019 – Half Moon Bay, Black Rock

The Inaugural outing for the DCC Scenic Group was on Sunday 3rd March at Half Moon Bay for a late afternoon sunset photo shoot.

Fifteen members attended the meeting.  After a hot day that saw many people still enjoying the beach, the clouds arrived followed by a cool change. We did see some colour on the water and land as the sun set and hopefully people found find plenty of photographic opportunities and were challenged particularly with some long exposures. 

Photos from the day will be added to this page as they are received following processing.  In the meantime here are some initial ones:
