GNPC members joining the Worldwide Photographic Walk on Sunday 2nd October couldn’t quite believe their luck with the unseasonably warm weather as they set out from Uncle Tom’s Cabin at Shoeburyness heading for Old Leigh. There was plenty on offer to photograph on the way, and as the temperature rose, and the beach began to fill up, members made a pit stop at the Ocean Bar for some much needed refreshment and to check their cameras for their best shots so far.
The few die hards that didn’t melt into a puddle along the Golden Mile, made it to Old Leigh in time to take some panoramic shots of the huge, sun-loving crowd that had lined up on the sea wall to soak up some of the party atmosphere.
After lunch, the journey continued on to a busy skate park where young skateboarders and bmx riders proved to be willing models for the four intrepid members remaining.
Last man standing, Mark Edwards, rounded off the day with some shots of the sunset from the beach at Shoeburyness.
Here are some of our members’ shots from the day:
