I agree lets set a date then!

Can anyone offer any guidance? Would it be worthwhile me using B&W film, I love black and white photos, but are there going to be possibilities for sunsets/rises etc?? If so I will use colour but what sort???

I dont want to wish i had used something else!!

I'm in the Midlands and would be interested depending on date and location..

One thing though, the Peak District doesn't really strike me as very local? About 100 miles from my door :o)

thats what I was thinking - it's more like the same area as the meet at chester Zoo isn't it?

The Peak District is actually nowhere near Chester Zoo and pretty much links the Midlands ter t'North.

Depends what sort of scenery you want really but it's only an hour or so from Birmingham.

Ok, I wasn't really sure how far away it was - but if it's a good place it's worth driving to anyway. And I suppose if it's in the middle of both areas we could get a few more turning up too.

So is anybody going to name a place,

And date?.

Any Saturday or Sunday in March is good for me and the Peak District around 90 mins away would be fine.

I'm in the Peak District, near as dammit, and there are absolutely loads of places for landscape work, though at the minute you'd need a 4 wheel drive to get to most of my faves! I'd certainly be up for this...

Insofar as locations go, may I suggest any of the following:

Bakewell & Chatsworth - picturesque, yet accessible and decent parking.
Derwent Reservoirs - very pretty, though parking is a bit more of a problem.
Carl Wark/Higger Tor - Bleak, desolate, beautiful, but bring your walking boots!

I'm starting a new job in April, and I'll be moving back up to Sunderland, so this might be quite a cool "goodbye for now" event for me too! Easter Weekend is a bad idea, as it's always heaving round then, the weekend after is the weekend I'm moving. What do people think about the weekend of the 19th/20th of March then??

Thats ok for me

Also happen to have a 4 wheel drive Smile

I have 4 wheels and I drive. Have to check with my social secretary whether that weekend is a good one for me.

I couldn't make that weekend, but no doubt there will be other meets in the future Smile
