This was the first of many OTRCC outings for 2015.

We started at Moyo Pier for sunrise then headed to Durban Botanical Gardens for some tea and scones and more photography of course. Who could resist photographing all the lovely flowers and birds.

We were  lucky and sunrise greeted us at Moyo Pier with a stunning show.

This was one of my favorite images of the Durban skyline being lit up just after sunrise and I was very happy and excited when it received an acceptance in the 4th Tygerberg Digital Salon.

It was a lovely morning on the beach with fellow photographers from the club.

From the beach we headed to Durban Botanical Gardens  which is a lovely park like setting with ponds, beds of flowers, birds, monkeys and a  lovely little tea garden.

It was great to get together with the club members that we hadn’t seen since the previous year.

OTRCC outings are held monthly and are usually in line with the set subject for the month. They are always informative and the more experienced photographers never seem to mind sharing their experience and knowledge.

It was a really great morning which showed some stunning results with the images shown at the next OTRCC meeting. I myself was very pleased with a few gold awards 🙂 A really good start to the year.
