A Landscape For All Seasons
Our speaker next week is David Harford LRPS talking about his journeys exploring Oman in a 4×4.
“The talk is about my 3 journeys alone in Oman from the straits of Hormuz in the north to the borders of Yemen in the south. I covered over 15,000 miles through mountain and desert, staying with local people, Bedu and camping out under the stars. The purpose of the trips was for photography and to meet the real people of the country away from tour operators and hotels.
The talk covers various aspects of the journey with video clips, music and still photos, ending with my favourite images. The presentation takes about 11/2 hours, with questions possibly 1 3/4 hours. It is in small sections, so your break for tea can be easily taken at any time and the lecture can be amended to suit the evening.”
David has also sent a link to an article he wrote for the Anglo- Omani Review on pages 12-15 This should give a fascinating insight into the landscape and people of Oman and give an idea of Travel Photography so don’t miss an interesting evening.
