Heybridge! It was the landscape photographers’ turn this week for a balmy summer’s evening at the popular Heybridge Basin, where the Chelmer Blackwater Canal meets the River Blackwater.

There had been warnings about the allergy-causing hairs of the brown-tail moth caterpillars, which were infesting the area. But our intrepid members persevered regardless in the name of their art. No ill effects were reported even though a couple of macro shots of the offending beasts were taken.

The Old Ship was also on hand for fish and chip suppers for those of us that visited straight from work. Conversation topics included what are the best photo locations at the different cities that members are visiting this Summer; Air BnB; tax penalties (!); and of course Brexit.
