    Great session, Monty was very good, explaining and suggesting ways we could improve our composition of architectural pictures. He was very patient and his enthusiasm for the subject shone through. He was able to help the people using cameras and phones too.

    The Fen landscape is very interesting ... the whole area was reclaimed from the sea in the 1700s and has extremely rich soils, perfect for farming. One problem is that, as the soils have dried out over the years, they have subsided to the extent that many areas are below sea level ? so the whole region is protected by a system of drainage channels and protective banks. Highway maintenance is also difficult as the soil shrinks at different rates, and this bumpy road is typical of many in the area
