Rothley Autumn Colour Walk, Sunday 26th October 2014.

On Sunday 26th October 2014, club vice chairman Glyn Truman organised a local walk in conjunction with his
recent challenge for members to capture images showing Autumn Colour in the landscape, woodlands & forests.
Gordon Hine, Dave Bisset, Alan Harle, Bob Turner and Davy Bolam joined Glyn for a visit to a mature woodland
that surrounds Rothley Lake, north of Scots Gap.
This wood is privately owned and not open to the public, access being strictly limited at this time to protect the
wildlife, flora and fauna. National Trust Ranger Steve Green explained the role of the trust in this project and
gave an insight into the work that goes on behind the scenes to manage the area.
Cameras and tripods were well used as the colours of the trees, grasses, fungi, leaves on the forest floor and
clear relections in the waters of the lake were recorded. Two hours passed very quickly and it was soon time
to depart after a good session of outdoor photography.
Morpeth Camera Club would like to record their thanks to Paul Hewitt, the National Trust Countryside Manager
for Wallington who authorised our visit and to Ranger Steve Green whose assistance was much appreciated.
Club members are reminded that they still have until 11th November to take and then submit up to four images
via e mail to Glyn to enter this challenge. All images will be shown at the club on Tuesday 25th November 2014.
