    I am afraid, that, jesting I was not. I can take up the weather position, but if anything goes wrong, I'll just blame it on somebody, name to be announced later, after I make my unilateral decision on the subject.

    Ah! Now I am understanding Mike! I agree on both counts. Travelling with the Wife in Cuba! I feel your photographic pain

    and yes...we are so lucky, we are on such a beautiful Island.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Cheers

    Choice of venue (west country) looks really good. Somewhere with potential for big seas if a storm front kicks in - i.e. Atlantic coast of Cornwall - would be excellent. However, has a date been decided upon yet?

    The agreed date is of more importance to me than the venue as I'll be driving from East Anglia. To be honest, Land's End isn't much different in driving terms from Ilfracombe from where I live - but I would need to be there on the correct weekend...!

    All the best. Paul.

    Is this our definitive list of locations for the vote?

    West Cornwall
    Mid Cornwall/Dartmoor
    East Cornwall
    North Devon/Exmoor

    I thought North Devon and Dartmoor could be covered as one.

    Feel free to speak up if you disagree

    I will put up polls for these locations (and any more that anyone one else comes up with before then) and another poll for the date on Sunday night which we can leave to run for, say, two weeks before closing them.

    Re: North Devon and Dartmoor.

    Are you thinking about doing some photography or just driving around? Dartmoor would take you a lifetime and North Devon nearly a lifetime!
    Choose just one and look at it properly :-)

    Cheers,
    Neil.

    In a weekend? Usual practice is that locals pick a few local photographic delicacies to sample and the rest of the time is spent in the pub...

    Typo by me Neil :rolleyes:

    Should have said North Devon and Exmoor

    Thankfully Bob knew what I was trying to say

    I am sure you are right about them both having a lifetimes worth of photographic potential - that’s the best and worst thing about photographing a place - its always an unfinished and on-going piece of work
