Fortunately the rain lifted and the dark grey moved to light grey and we had enough light to take a couple of thousand images (each shot in continuous mode is 5-6 images) and come away having achieved what we came for.
We were assisted on the day by our fellow club member, Emily Gallagher, who was assisting the course photographer Lionel Fifield.
Lionel and Emily took us on to the course allowing us to get close to the action. Thanks to Lionel for his welcome and all the assistance.
