This is just an opportunity for like minded people to spend some time photographing the area. No lessons, workshops nor any formal organization.We will wait at the gate until 7.30 for people to meet up.

3. Even though winter is upon us, pack a hat and some sunblock.
4. Don't forget your camera, charged batteries, memory cards and a tripod.
5. Bring your camping chairs so that you are able to rest your weary legs when we have a natter later the day."
