    Oh well, we'll have to see if we can enlist a fair, dimpled, dewy-eyed maiden (if we can find one without a sabre fetish!).

    Following the current line of thought - subject matter, that is - with some trepidation - if anyone likes the idea (no Dave, not your Sunday one in the main post...) I have previously spent a pleasant time on the Neadd river. powerful (if difficult) water...falls or river generally, with salmon trout..
    Consider this: Most lenses are better than most photographers...

    I won't be there but I'd second Llanthony Abbey. It's less well-known than Tintern and was very quiet the day I went. It is in beautiful surroundings. The church nearby was open and I was able to set up a mini tripod for inside shots without hassle.

    Every time a UK meet is arranged I'm working, the same day.

    This ones no exception, while your out in the landscape I'll be shooting a Rock Concert which starts 3pm :-)

    Just get into the Forest of Dean, it's wonderful, full of amazing landscapes, and all reasonably close to Ross on Wye. Unfortunately the Forestry Commission destroyed a lot of the remains Fay Godwin photographed but you don't need to look hard to find alternatives.

    Lydney, but make sure you go to the Dock area is excellent, look for the skeletons of boats Fay photographed.

    Have fun

    I got lost somewhere along the previous post on the topic ... where are the bulk of you meeting, and what setting-out time is on the slate for Saturday morning?

    Fingers crossed for good weather.

    Unless of course you're accustomed to more dramatic landscapes. My own garden is more precipitous than Symonds Yat, and the view far better. :o

    But the whole of Wye Valley can be used as an illustration of "picturesque".

    Hi Sandeha,

    Here's a link to the page with all of the information re where we'll be staying and meeting up on Friday evening - http://www.apug.org/forums/forum137/...hering-12.html

    Setting out time on Saturday / Sunday mornings generally depends on the weather, the quality of the breakfast and how much ale we consumed the night before! Likewise, venues and times will probably be cobbled together as we go along. Sorry, but I can't be more precise than that!

    If you're serious about trying to meet up with us then PM me and we can exchange mobile numbers. Best I can do I'm afraid!

    All the best,

    Frank

    I used to cave around there!

    Interesting area around Ystradfellte (Pub in village).

    A few images of Afon Nedd here...

    Also Afon Hepste and Afon Mellte...

    What do people think?
