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.
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,
The destination is important, but so is the journey
