Neil Malton, past president of the Peterborough Photographic Society, gave the talk with examples of his award winning work.

He has cameras especially adapted for taking infra-red images with good results and is able to answer technical questions on how to adapt a camera and whether it is worth the expense.

A club spokesman said: “The talk from Neil was a wonderful night and all members enjoyed it.

“The Infra-red pictures are Edingthorpe Church, Decay and Suilven View. The nature pictures show Adonis Blue, Wasp Spider, Redpool and Merlin.”
