OK so now we are 3!!

How is everyone else fixed?

We also need to pick a location, so far the following have been mentioned:

Rock of Dunamaise
Emo court
Killiney white rock
Vico baths

Emo & Dunamaise are both only ten minutes drive so I'd go for either of the two Dublin spots, Killiney 1st and the baths 2nd,

2nd February is fine for me, either or both of the Dublin spots would be my preference

OK, lets run with the Dublin locations so. I have been on a google photwalk around Sandycove and Dalkey a while back so I have a rough idea of the area, but maybe someone who knows the area a bit better could suggest (or put up a google maps link) and mention parking etc?

Both Dublin locations are close together, located between Dalkey and killiney, there is roadside parking beside White Rock Killiney if we are early enough. Need to check out Vico Baths exact location, its nearer Dalkey.

If it's ok with everyone I might be free to join in with you on the 2nd Feb?
I thought I was going to be unable to make it but now it appears that I may be able to.

My new year resolution was to try and make as many outings and print showings in 2013 as possible so that's what I intend to do.

Just in case anyone thinks I gave up on LF meet-ups, I am very much up for it. It's just that this time of year work takes me travelling, and not for photographic reasons... So I don't think I'll make it 2nd Feb, but I will be there with you in terms of moral support. I hope to make it to the next one, very much.

I enjoy sharing whatever I've learned over the years with you, hope to be some use to our small but rapidly growing community (from 2 to 4, hey, that's a 100% growth).

Enjoy and my regards from Madrid.

9 should be fine I think.

Here is a link to where I think the vico baths are, but I'm not sure..... anyone with local knowledge here where we might park etc?

google maps link (https://maps.google.com/maps?q=killiney+white+rock,+Killiney,+Ireland&hl=en&ll=53.268909,-6.094462&spn=0.003484,0.009645&sll=53.267703,-6.100116&sspn=0.006969,0.01929&t=h&hnear=White+Rock,+Killiney+Ave,+Killiney,+County+D ublin,+Ireland&z=17)


Here's a link to a geological walk, if you scroll down to "stop 4" it tells how to get down to white rock across the dart line:

I'll be tagging along, might have new toy in the bag if all goes to plan, lots of parking along the road at White Rock so this might be best starting point. I will try arrive early and set up the tripod as a marker.

Fran, getting down is easy, getting back up is a lot more challenging !!!

I might be interested in tagging along, if that's ok-
and provided the weather takes a turn for the better...

Thanks George- would be good to meet up again-
but I think it'll be down to the weather more than anything else-

Eddie, I might try to get there earlier too-

I haven't shot big film in a long time, so it'd be good to get a sheet or two exposed...

Hi guys, so we're looking at Saturday the 2nd at 9am but where are we meeting first ?

I'll not make this guys, I have a lot to do on the new darkroom so I'll be busy for the weekend.

fran

So, yes we are all going ahead on Saturday. Meet at the white rock part, can just park on Vico road (from Eddies post above).

That strand along there doesn't look huge, so I think a bunch of lads with big cameras on tripods under dark cloths should stand out!!

Looks like if I'm late it'll be easy to find everyone, see you guys tomorrow.

Forecast looks pretty good, photographers ephemeris gives sunrise as 8.06 and low tide at 8.00 for anyone who is interested.
