PROBUS Club of Durham West

Snapped Camera Club

The Snapped Camera Club meets on the second Wednesday of the month.

We are an amateur group using all different types of cameras. No experience needed, just the pleasure of taking pictures.

We enjoy planned outings giving us additional opportunities to take pictures, using themes as a focus, and enjoying the company of like minded members. Now with Zoom, we have the option of meeting on Zoom to share, discuss and learn from each other or invite a guest speaker.

The Snapped Photography group visited WindReach Farms on a beautiful sunny day in May. The weather was perfect to enjoy the outdoors along with all the sheep bleating (baa) to get our attention, the cows, miniature horses and some smaller animals like green beans the guinea pig indoors.

"WindReach Farm strives to enrich the lives of persons of all ages with disabilities and/or special needs by providing opportunities to enjoy experiences in farming, nature, outdoor recreation, and other activities, and to share those experiences with family and friends."


Snapped members ventured to Port Hope for their April outing. We had a great warm sunny day. Our first stop was at Primitive Designs just north of the 401 located at 2762 Northumberland County Rd 28. There are many huge sculptures made from salvaged metal. Many interesting imported products can be purchased.

We heard that the trout were running, so we then headed to Corbett's Dam which was located five minutes south of where we were. The trout were very determined to jump the dam or the culvert with many unsuccessful attempts hitting the concrete walls (ouch)!

After watching workmen weigh, measure and take scale samples of the trout, we headed to the Dancing Bee Equipment store on Toronto Street, Port Hope. If you are looking for a variety of honey products, then this is the place to go. Creamed honey with gingerbread spices was my purchase. Others bought a variety of products.


The Snapped Camera Club didn’t meet in March.

We look forward to their next picture-taking trip and more amazing pictures!


The Snapped Photography group had a Zoom meeting in February. We were very fortunate that two of our Snapped members, Tommie Sue Montgomery and Eileen Nixon, provided us with slideshows from trips they have been on. Tommie Sue Montgomery gave us a tour going from north to south in Chile. Eileen showed us some pictures from her African safari trip. 


Members of our Snapped Photography group held a Zoom meeting in January to share photos taken over the holidays and also our February Challenge from last year.

The February (2022) challenge was to take pictures of something red, high and low perspectives, something old, something that makes you smile, etc.
