Club Meeting Report, An Evening with Vince - Tuesday 4th February 2014.

On Tuesday 4th February 2014, Club Vice Chairman Glyn Trueman introduced Vince Rooker; Club Lifetime President who
gave a talk entitled ‘An Evening with Vince’.

The presentation included photographs which had been taken by Vince over many years and included children sledging in
powdery snow, wet dogs on the beach, horse jumping at Burgham, and horses and hounds in Glanton. His favourite location, Luskintyre Beach on Harris was the subject of many beautiful photographs of the coast, with channels of ever-changing light
and sand patterns; cottages with mountains as a backdrop.



There were wonderful landscapes featuring Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Walkworth castles and night time shots of the
Northumbria University with amazing reflected lights in glass. Frosty scenes at Buttermere, misty views of the Dolomites
surrounded by low cloud, autumn colours and the Grand Teton Mountains reflected in lakes, dawn through the morning mist
at Tangle Creak at Yellowstone National Park and the wonderful colours of calcified rock at Mammoth Falls were all included
in Vince’s presentation.



Then, on to the Dingle Peninsular, Ireland, images of light glinting on the sand, underwater sand patterns, blue and rust
coloured rock formations and the bright colours of the houses and quirky pubs. Then to Belfast with its brightly coloured
street paintings, and happy images of friendly local children. Interspersed with amusing anecdotes, Vince’s presentation
concluded with his much admired still life images which he produces, amazingly,using only natural light, resulting in very atmospheric studies.



Glyn thanked Vince for a wonderful presentation, the raffle and coffee concluded yet another brilliant evening at the club.
