11th June: Namibia – a Talk by Maggie Tear LRPS CPAGB and Ron Tear MPAGB ARPS PSA3 BPE3

What a treat we had last night as Maggie and Ron shared their journey through Namibia through their wonderful landscape and wildlife photography. The terrain, history and magic of the place were captured beautifully and their visual and verbal descriptions, especially of the ‘silence of the dunes’, was breathtaking.

Many thanks to them both for an inspiring evening.
