    You wouldn't be kind enough to elaborate more on this comment Mealers? Only, I have always thought that Cuba was 'THE' destination when you have a camera in hand.

    It would be good to hear why this was not the case fron someone who has experienced it.

    Cheers

    Any additions to:

    * North Devon (???)

    Locals please feel free to suggest better bases - I don't know the area at all!


    Nope – reading back through the thread this is all we suggested :o

    We seem strangely in agreement as to the next meet general location

    Outer Hebrides anyone ?

    Exmoor or West Cornwall are good photographic options? Depends how far people want to drive?

    The further west you go in Cornwall the narrower the peninsular gets, this gives easy access to both the north coast and south. St Ives would be a good base for this, in fact from here, any part of west cornwall can be reached easily : The Lizard, Godrevy, Penzance, Lands end, Cape Cornwall, Sennen area are all great locations with awesome coastal scenery.

    However, Exmoor/North Devon sounds interesting as I've never been there and would find it hard to choose between the two.

    Personally, I found the most westerly bit of Cornwall has the best weather.

    Of course it rains at Lands End/Penzance/St Ives but the weather fronts tend to move through quickly

    When using a LF camera it presents problems - it takes so very long to get the camera set-up that by the time I am ready to shoot - the light has changed - sometimes several times

    It can be quite character building :rolleyes:

    I was told that Dartmoor is more pittoresque than Exmoor.

    Could we do the Cornish coast and Dartmoor or would it be too much?

    Whatever happens weather wise, I'd wish that we did not have a repeat of Anglesey's. Who's in charge of the weather this time?

    Stoo - Dont get me wrong Cuba is an amazing place to visit and photograph. Maybe if I went there just to take photographs (and not on holiday with the Mrs) I would feel different.
    But watching the countryside fly by on the train while heading back to Plymouth made me realise just how lucky we are when it comes to variety of good photography locations in the UK.

    One of the reasons I like west Cornwall is the option of having both coasts. If its blowing a gale on one side you can usually find a bit of shelter on the other with just as amazing scenery.

    The North Devon coastline also has its gems, places like Hartland Quay for its rock formations or Clovelly which is a real old fishing village.

    Delphine you jest :o

    In Anglesey there was a unanimous vote that Barry was sacked from his weather duties and one Ms Lopez was unanimously voted into the role

    The fact that you were not present at the time is of little consequence. :rolleyes:

    OK, do we want to add Exmoor & Dartmoor into the voting options?
