Welcome to the website of Haddington Camera Club.
In the days before the A1, when cattle wandered the road from Edinburgh to England, Haddington was known as “The hidden toun”, perhaps due to its low site on the floodplain of the Tyne.
The town can still take newcomers by surprise. There’s plenty going on.
It’s a fast growing place and you may be new here. Lots of information at http://www.haddington.org.uk/
If you are keen on photography and live in or around Haddington, HCC might be just what you are looking for.
We meet every Tuesday evening from September to mid March, in the Poldrate Granary building, an old watermill by the Tyne, near where the B6368 crosses the river. Full details of how to find us are here.
Updated score sheet is on the members’ page.
The two images on the right show the faint comet P46-Wirtanen at 10 minute separation. Movement against the two stars is evident , even in such a short time. The comet will be at it’s closest on Dec 16th, but is hard to spot with the naked eye.
Next Tuesday will be an informal Christmas nibbles and natter night. If you want to bring eats or drinks do so, but we will have soft drinks , snacks, tea & biccies. If you have images you would like to see on screen, bring them along. We will bring some of the surplus darkroom items up to see if anyone is interested in buying it.
On January 8th , Norman Dunk will give a talk on how to use off-camera flash. And a wee challenge for February 12th- Bring up to 3 digital images on the subject of WEATHER. There is some weather right outside your door. (Snow forecast for this weekend!) Wrap up warm and get out there.
