View On Black


La Sociedad Fotográfica de Gipuzkoa, es una agrupación cultural, sin ánimo de lucro, cuyos fines primordiales son el fomento de las actividades relacionadas con el mundo de la imagen, tanto en su aspecto fotográfico como videográfico.

La Sociedad Fotográfica de Gipuzkoa comenzó su gestación en el año 1945, reuniéndose cuatro amantes de la fotografía. La Junta Constitutiva, y los primeros Estatutos son aprobados a finales de 1947, funcionando desde entonces como una entidad definida, aunque legalmente no fue aprobada, por la situación política de aquellos años, hasta el 21 de Abril de 1948, fecha que figura en el primer libro de registro de socios.

Los Locales Sociales de la Sociedad Fotográfica han sido muchos, hasta que desde el año 1974 se ubicaran en el antiguo edificio de la Casa de Baños del Paseo Nuevo donostiarra, cedido por el Excmo. Ayuntamiento de Donostia – San Sebastián. Este edificio, rehabilitado y remodelado en el año 1995, proporciona a la S.F.G. cerca de 1.000 metros cuadrados en los que realizar las diversas actividades sociales.

Cuenta con más de 900 socios, que participan y colaboran en la vida social de la agrupación.
En el año 1982 la S.F.G. recibió del Excmo. Ayto de San Sebastián, la Corbata de la Ciudad por la labor cultural desarrollada a lo largo de sus 34 años de vida en favor de la Ciudad.

En la actualidad la S.F.G. colabora activamente con el Ayto. de San Sebastián en diversas actividades relacionadas con el mundo del vídeo y la fotografía, así como con otras diversas instituciones, manteniendo activos contactos con otras agrupaciones tanto de Gipuzkoa como del resto del estado y del extranjero.

Risley Moss Nature Reserve in Cheshire, England - February 2012

Risley Moss Nature Reserve in Cheshire, England - February 2012

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risley_Moss




Risley Moss is an area of peat bog situated near Birchwood in Warrington, England. It covers an area of 210.5 acres (85.2 ha) and is one of the last remaining fragments of the raised bogs that once covered large areas of South Lancashire and North Cheshire. Natural depressions in the glacial drift left by the ice sheets which covered the Cheshire–Shropshire plain during the last ice age, 10,000–15,000 years ago, filled with water, forming the meres and mosses characteristic of the area today. In some cases, like Risley Moss, peat accumulation filled the depression, allowing colonisation by bog mosses such as the Sphagnum varieties, thus giving rise to the name "moss".

Risley Moss is one of only two mosses in Cheshire where the water level has been deliberately raised in an attempt to encourage the regeneration of an active bog surface.[1] The long-term restoration project to re-wet the moss began in 1978 and was completed in 2002. This scheme was undertaken to create a series of scrapes and bunds to retain water and recreate the perfect conditions for bog flora such as cotton grass and sphagnum mosses to re-colonise the bogs.[2]

It was the former site of a large Royal Ordnance Factory. Today, it is managed by Cheshire County Council as a country park and an educational nature reserve. It was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1986.[1] Risley Moss, together with Astley and Bedford Mosses and Holcroft Moss, is also a European Union designated Special Area of Conservation, known as Manchester Mosses.[3]



Features



The main feature of Risley Moss is the large peat bog flats, overlooked by two observation points: a large watchtower, ideal for bird watching, and a smaller lookout. These points have additional information inside relating to bird species and landscape layouts. The Moss also has several smaller huts located inside the forested area for bird watching and nature enthusiasts.

Tours across the flats and nature reserve are available from the main information centre and are undertaken by local rangers.

In addition to the natural features and landscape, there are several sculptures around the site, usually with a natural theme.
