Selsey Camera Club

Outdoor Shoot at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth

Six club members gathered by the Spinnaker Tower at Gunwharf Quays on Monday 6th November for the annual club night shoot. However, in anticipation of favourable late afternoon lighting conditions, several members arrived early, and, taking advantage of the Gosport ferry, travelled over to that side to photograph the Portsmouth harbour front.

As the afternoon drew to a close, we took further photographs on the Portsmouth side by the HMS Warrior. By then the tide was at its lowest which gave good opportunities to photograph small craft sitting on shiny mud banks by the shore. We then took a break for tea and cake while nightfall enveloped Gunwharf before exploring its night time photographic opportunities.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer Martin Thomas

At our next meeting on Monday 27th November we will hold the John Sayers Landscape Cup competition to be judged by Dick Saunders.

This, as the title of the competition reveals, is a PDI competition for landscape images. Up to 5 entries can be submitted by each member. Please remember that the maximum size for projecting an image using the club’s projector is currently 1920(W) by 1080(H) pixels. Also please ensure that you set the file name correctly, with the title in capital letters followed by “by” and your name in the usual mix of upper and lower case. eg BULLFIGHTING by Matt Adore.

The deadline for accepting entries is noon on Sunday 26th November. Please send your PDI entries by email to Dick Read at

NB Members entering 5 images must identify which image they wish to exclude should a cull be necessary.
