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.
