Event No:1 “Close Encounters” – Talk by Colin Varndell

Colin Varndell is one of Britain’s most distinguished wildlife photographers who is dedicated to promoting the natural world through his photography. He has been photographing the landscape and wildlife for over 35 years and his evocative photographs of animals, birds, insects, wild flowers and landscapes are reproduced nationally and internationally. Colin’s work appears in magazines, newspapers, calendars and greeting cards and has been reproduced in over forty books. His photographs are used regularly to promote the work of many conservation organisations including Dorset Wildlife Trust, The Woodland Trust and RSPCA.

This afternoon’s talk is entitled ‘Close Encounters”. Colin has long been passionate about macro-photography and this presentation brings together his various close-up skills in the field of nature photography. The presentation covers a wide range of nature subjects, most of which can actually be found in our own gardens including: frost, raindrops, leaf details, reflections, icicles, abstract patterns, dew, wild flowers, bursting buds, dragonflies, butterflies, tree blossoms, mosses, nuts, fungi, cobwebs, autumn colour, hornets and other invertebrates.
