Haining Photo Walk

Haining Photo walk January 2023

The Haining is a country house and estate in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. The present house dates from the 1790’s and was a property of the Pringle family. In 2009, the house and grounds were bequeathed to the people of Selkirkshire and the wider public. The Haining Charitable Trust is now working on developing the building as a centre for exhibitions and events, highlighting art, culture, and history.

It’s a great place for a photo walk. There’s a good presence of bird life and waterfowl. The house itself can be a good subject although it’s a bit difficult just now due to restoration works. Still, those who are a dab hand at image editing can “fix” that.

On Saturday 14th January a few members met up for a chin-wag and a photo walk around the estate and loch. The forecast wasn’t great however we were lucky and the atrocious predicted weather didn’t appear until after we’d gone.

Photo walks are a good way to pick up tips from other photographers. We are willing to share knowledge so if you’re a bit of a beginner and already a member why not join in with the next one? If you’re not a member and fancy joining watch the district news section of Border Telegraph or Southern Reporter for announcements on the next Photo walk. Ford Renton LRPS
