Club Outing – Lough Boora

17 October 2023 | Club Outings

On Saturday 14th October 11 members, including 2 very welcome new members, made the trip to the Lough Boora Discovery Park in Co. Offaly. It was a beautiful Autumn morning and the 2hr drive ( with the occasional wrong turn ) was well worth the effort.

We gathered in the visitor centre cafe and were lucky enough to have a briefing from one of the staff regarding the different options available to us …… be it wildlife photography from one of the hides, or visiting the sculpture park with its well known (and well photographed) skytrain, or simply following one of the many walking trails through the varied landscape.
On the day, there was also the opportunity to photograph some action from the ‘Dogs in the Bog’ event held in one section of the Park.
With all this information onboard, we set out in small groups to explore and photograph our own particular interests.

At approx 1pm we regrouped in the ‘Organic Kitchen’ cafe for a welcome tea/coffee and chat. All members were happy with the mornings photography, including the chance to enjoy some pleasant autumn weather in a beautiful location.

This is our second trip to Lough Boora this year, following a very successful astro night shoot in April. No doubt we will return again in the future.
