We started the evening by entering our images into the last competition this season, The Image of the Year. The results are expected on 13th April.


The main event was a superb talk by Samantha Miller on the Falkland islands. Samantha’s father is a Faulklander and she is an excellent photographer so she interspersed local knowledge, gained through her childhood, and recent visits, with stunning images and the evening rapidly slipped by.


We learned that life on the Falkland Islands is characterized by a strong sense of community and a close connection to the natural environment, including the wind! Everybody knows everybody as was clear from the talk. The economy is primarily based on agriculture, fishing, and tourism, with wool being the most important export. The islands are also home to a number of species of wildlife, including penguins, seals, and albatrosses, all of which Samantha captured with amazing stories of the dangers behind some of her photography.


Have you been following (and enjoying) our competitions on our website https://www.penryncameraclub.co.uk? Look under Gallery > Competitions (Select “Fun” to see the Faulkland images). You are welcome to come for a couple of taster sessions (Thursdays, 19:30, The Penryn Athletic Football Club) to see if you would like to join us.
