Ruari, whose marvellous shows based around the Hebrides have been seen at the club, has now departed from the islands and travelled elsewhere. This presentation covered a wide variety of locations including Venice, Malta, through Sicily, via the last working tin mine in Cornwall, and of course, a brief look at the Hebrides. There was also a section on unusual gravestones, accompanied by music in the form of Bob Dylan’s ‘Knocking on Heaven’s Door’! By way of a change, we had a brief glimpse of old, rusting VW camper vans at their own rally.
The audiovisual techniques that Ruari used to present his images were very advanced and produced stunning results, and even included short video sequences to enhance subjects like steam trains and a chairlift ride!
At the end of the evening, most members were feeling that they would like to jump on a plane and visit or re-visit some of the places we saw, such was the atmosphere the show created. We hope to see another of Ruari’s presentations in the not too distant future.
