On a warm June day, Glenn Guaraldi
led members on a photo field trip to Portland Head and Nubble Light, in Maine. Bob Ring
shared the above photos of members in action and says, "What a day for a field trip! Yesterday was the Lighthouse field trip to Portland Head and Nubble Lights, and it was a fabulous day. Glenn brought great weather along with some ocean waves that were almost winter storm-like. Thanks to Glenn for organizing a great day. I'm sure that all of those who attended really enjoyed themselves AND got some great photos."
L to R: Eric, Les
and Mary were among the club members that
attended the annualPittsfield Hot Air Balloon Rally in Pittsfield, NH.
Although weather conditions were questionable, eventually balloons
took off making a great opportunity for some amazing photographs.
