Sharpenhoe Clappers Summer Walk

Jeremy Lintott    August 16, 2021

Our final summer event before the start of the new season took place on 12th August at Sharpenhoe Clappers. Having been rearranged from the week before when a few of the (fool?)hardiest of the club turned out to stand and chat under a tree in the pouring rain, this time we had a good turnout and were blessed with fine weather and a decent sunset.

There is plenty for the photographer to enjoy at Sharpenhoe Clappers, with the ancient beech woods and extensive views, and at this time of year lots of wildflowers and butterflies.

Having seen precious little of each other over the last year due to Covid restrictions we stayed as a group, enjoying time to chat aswell as take photographs. The wind made close-up photography of flowers and insects, including many Chalkhill Blue butterflies, rather challenging at times but the views over Hertfordshire towards a lovely sunset finished off a an enjoyable evening.

Here are some of our members images from the evening:
