The highlight from Monday's members' evening was the brand new Viking exhibition. Along with dozens of smaller artifacts, the exhibition included a full size replica of a 37m long viking ship rebuilt with wood from an actual viking ship. The event photography briefing included coverage of members examining the display items in the Viking exhibition, the newly refurbished restaurant, the Viking weaponry display, as well as the hands on displays. The exhibition drew one of the largest crowds yet for a members' evening.
(As an aside for any photographers, I had the new Nikon D4S on loan and it performed remarkably; the image of the ship below is shot at ISO 11400!)
I really enjoyed the buzz of the evening and was really pleased with how the new camera performed...now off to get a lottery ticket.
