As mentioned by Ade, what's ya favourite locations that have NOT been done to death and that you would like to share, UK only Smile

Any secret place that does it for you and why?

Maybe even share your stories that got you to that place.

My possibles are

1 - Marloes Sands - don't see a lot from there and it has some great rocks.
2 - Clydach Gorge near A465 Abergavenny - great little falls with nice Autumn colours and a stone throw away from Buffalo Tom's pub!
3 - The Hafod aka Llangattock Escarpment - Im yet to see an awesome image from there and its not done often - Great place for views and vista's around the Lonely Shepherd.

It's not a secret - but you don't see many photographers there.

Dobbies Garden Centre outside Stirling.

Huge range of photo-ops from landscape to river scenes, from flower and plant macros to amazing abstracts using all the plant pots and garden stuff, even a bit of wildlife.

It's probably just me but I keep getting drawn back to this little stretch of Spurlswood Beck near Blackling Hole, Hamsterley Forest -> hamsterley 1 hamsterley 2 . I've never seen any other photographers there - at least not beyond people taking snaps.

And I can't work out why I don't see more shots of the old beaten up tractor near Keld on the Pennine Way. It doesn't look much to the eye I guess but definitely makes a good shot, especially given the moody skies that are the norm up that way.

What you want to know Bri?

Tell you what PM me and I will sort it and maybe hook up and I will show you both the Hafod and Clydach gorge. Marloes is about 2 hr away more west wales.

Barafundle is nice - walked there from Stackpole a couple of years ago at Christmas. Also, Bosherton is nearby, where the robins will eat out of your hand Smile

no one's playing ball on this one Wink

1 - Ferry Bridge power station - I've shot it quite a lot, but I don't see anyone else shooting it to death Wink Not that pretty really
2 -The road from Hubberholm to Gayle - not sure what its called, but it links Wharfdale to Wensleydale and is rather lovely
3 - Foot bridge over the A58M where the International Pool used to be. Leeds. Good for an urban decay backdrop to shots, quite a bit of graffiti etc.
