The "Lockdown" Challenges

Our first challenge on the subject of Water has now ended and I thank everyone who joined in.  All of the photographs that were submitted can be viewed on the online gallery by clicking HERE.

As you know we will continue to be restricted in where we can go until 26th April and to try to get as many of you involved as I can the second challenge is to send amusing pictures of domestic animals.  I know a lot of you have pets so how are they coping in the lockdown? Staring out of the window? Lazing in the sun? Has the neighbours pet decided to pay you a visit?Whatever they are doing we'd like to see them.  Remember, you don't need a fancy camera to join in.  Photos taken on your phone are just as good.  I will be setting up another online gallery when the pictures start to come in so don't forget to check back here for the link to the gallery.

For those of you who don't have pets, don't worry.  I'm setting a further challenge on Wildlife photos which can be of any creature that is totally unaware of the lockdown.

You can view the online Wildlife gallery by clicking HERE.

Please send your photos to me by email* using the link below or direct to with the subject heading of either "PETS" or "WILDLIFE" and we'll share them with our members in the online galleries. 

The latest Challenges will finish on Monday 20th April so you have two weeks to get snapping. You can send me your photos anytime between now and then.  A new challenge will be set for what will hopefully be the last week of a total lockdown.

*if you are unsure how to email photographs please get in touch and we'll guide you through it.

Good luck!

Next meeting: All meetings cancelled until further notice.

Anyone is welcome to join us, at either or both meetings, but new members are asked to email the group leader if you wish to join us on the Photo Shoot so that we know who to expect and ensure no-one is left behind.

In this group it doesn't matter what type of camera you use.  If you enjoy taking photographs and want to capture some of the beautiful landscapes, events and activities that go on in and around Oliva then join us.

The group is designed for getting out and about, taking photographs and having fun and will usually meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:30 a.m.  The date may change, depending on fiestas etc, but will always be advertised on this page.

For those group members that are interested, there will also be a meeting at 10:30 a.m. on the third Wednesday of the month. Again, this date may have to change occasionally, but is always advertised.  Group members bring along their favourite 3 photographs, from the previous photo shoot, on a memory stick, and we choose our Photo of the Month. We also have general discussions on our next outings, camera issues, editing software etc. Although this is not a technical help group there is enough knowledge within the membership to help each other out if we have problems or questions.

Photo of the Month

Our March 2020 outing took us on a tour of Oliva.  Given the current situation we decided not to choose a Photo of the Month but to share with you instead photos taken by the whole group.  Enjoy! We live in a beautiful place.
