2.  Outing – Shongweni Dam - Sat 25th Nov 2017

Please join us for our final outing for 2017. We will be going to Shongweni Dam, where we will be able to shoot nature, the dam and also the picturesque dam wall. Hopefully, if we get access, we will also shoot inside the dam wall, in the tunnel. There are also old abandoned buildings in the area. 

We would like to have a picnic first, on the grass area just before the dam wall. The idea is to eat, socialise and enjoy the surroundings. Once the light gets a bit softer, we will venture out and shoot. 

Just ahead of the sunset hour, we can move to the Canoe Club area. The sun should set over the dam, which provides for very pretty scenic shots.
