OUTING - REYNOLDS MUSEUM
April 09, 2016
14 members of CAPS braved gale force winds (if we may exaggerate somewhat) to attend the club outing to the Reynolds Museum in Wetaskiwin. There was a wide selection of superbly restored artifacts for us to feast our cameras upon, everything from antique/vintage automobiles, motorcycles, steam tractors and other farm equipment, to airplanes of a great variety of sizes. (One carload of four people took the old Highway 2A and even had an extra bonus in being treated to seeing THREE trains along their trip there and back!) There was colour galore on the artifacts to be photographed, although that will likely not deter some from converting images to monochrome. We were able to create a range of photos, from museum-wide perspectives to full artifact shots to close-up details of each subject. All of this we were able to enjoy thanks to the vision and determination of Mr. Stan Reynolds who saved all these items from the scrap heap and allowed the Alberta Government to build this grand facility and to restore the most precious of these pieces of equipment to renewed glory.
These are some of the pictures taken during this outing.
