    Would anyone be interested in a Photographic meet at Cwmcuttan CL in Wales?

    It a spectacular area with an RSPB reserve nearby at the reservoir and Eileen site alone has a huge amount of wildlife.

    Just an idea.

    Not definite but as i say possible if we can get 5 units.

    Just to add there will be a library of 20 odd hardback photography books, 100 or so DVD/CDS and 100 or so Photography Magazines (digital) to borrow for the weekend reading if you want. Have a portable Multimedia player to view your photos should you want to use it. Plenty of photographic material from macro to zoom lens even glamour, plenty of private places available, (bring your own model please:Wink:). Waterlillies, fish, chicken, ducks, spiders, dragonflies, birds (red kites and buzzards always about ) grasses and the waterfall are just some of the ideas for you. If you haven't got a camera and are thinking of buying one there is sure to be plenty of advice and I don't mind you borrowing any of mine or using the large or small tripod or the soft pod. Just ask !
