Hi, Alex here from Nottingham area,

I officially joined a while ago, but only got around to filling in the profile and uploading my first 50Mb today. Always hyper-critical of my own photographs, I thought I would put a few on display to see what others think, feel free to comment on my portfolio.

Would also be interested to hear from Notts photographers any tips on places to photograph wildlife, nature and landscapes. Particularly any hidden gems off the beaten track. There must be places other than the big parks and forests???

I can't believe I've been on here for 5+ years and have only just found out EPZ is only 30 minutes away!

Anyway welcome Alex, Dependant how far you want to travel, locally there's Attenborough nature reserve, Wollaton hall, moving further out, there's Donna Nook Lincoln way for the seals (don't know if they're still there) chatsworth, Curbar edge over chesterfield way. Let me know if you know of any other places, I'm always looking for somewhere new.

Edit. Just checked out your PF, looking good already. I see you've already discovered Donna Nook.

Welcome Alex perhaps we need to get a Derbyshire meet organised as there are lots of people in the areas as you will see when looking through the gallery. You can filter by a MAP option and see all the photos taken in an area you are interested in visiting. It's a great tool to help find scenic spots.

poolsbrook is a small nature reserve and pond near bolsover and staveley, near to M1 - j29a the grebes were performing last year from mid to late march and there are at least 4 pairs maybe 6, easily found on the small ponds, usually have their territory mapped out and they nest, breed and carry the young on their backs as the summer progresses

Thank you all for your kind welcomes comments and information. Looks like a good site with plenty of content and friendly members. I may even get time to start looking at some members pics now I have familiarised myself with everything.

Are there any good group which arrange East Midland based meets? It may be my searching, but I couldn't find any.
