What better way is there to spend a sunny, frosty morning in January then getting together with a group of likeminded photographers and exploring some of Wiltshire’s treasures?

After successful previous instameets with our friends at Igerswiltshire, we headed to Corsham for an explore of the town with both them and Corsham Town Council.

We planned to follow a similar route that I had done with Rachel from Corsham Town Council on a previous visit to Corsham, starting in the Pound arts centre, onto the Almshouses, through the stunning parkland of Corsham Court and then leading down the historic High Street (from Poldark fame) to our final stop at the Methuen Arms for some much needed food.

Some of the group are local to Wiltshire and some admitted that they hadn’t explored Corsham before, so it was a great opportunity to show them somewhere that they may not have even realised was on their doorstep!

Others had travelled from further afield including south Wales, Reading, Bristol and London and many brought their families along too. I think we counted well over forty people, with a mixture of professional photographers and keen amateurs. Some people using DSLRs, others using their smart phones, a great mixture.

One thing which always strikes me is that how differently a group of people can see the same place. Going through the images when I got home I was really impressed at the different interpretations people had of the same places. People often have their own focuses , whether that be people, landscapes, nature or architecture and being a big Instagram fan, I love to see places through the eyes of others.

If you want to see all of the images uploaded so far from the weekend’s meet check out #igerswiltshireatcorsham on Instagram but in the meantime, I’ve picked out some of the images that have struck me so far from the weekend:
