On December 2 we had an illustrated talk, by one of our members, Michael Hoad, on cruise journey to Iceland, and around Scotland and Ireland.
He showed us many scenes in Iceland of volcanic activity and mineral rich seawater, and warm pools for bathing. There are still some volcanic eruptions where tectonic plates are still on the move. Iceland is a photographic paradise.
He went south via the Faroe Islands in which two islands are linked by a tunnel and visited the Shetland Isles with many prehistoric sites, visited the west coast of Scotland and its islands before going to Glasgow, down the west coast of Ireland, past the Giant’s Causeway, a splendid rock formation, on around ‘The ring of Kerry’ and on to Cork and its deep water inlet.
This was a tour of photographic delight enjoyed by all the members present.
