    Ah, I finally located this post. Thanks, Roger.

    I might be able to meet up with you folks. We have some friends in Belgium that we need to see so we might be able to add this to the itinerary if the timing is right. Please keep us posted.

    Probably will travel one day to Bamburgh, stay over night trip to Farne for the day, then travel home or stay another night and then home?

    If enough people are interested I will research lodging, cost of the trip, transport, food, ...

    Yep; I could be well up for that one. Make sure you have hard hats for the Isles as them there birds have been known to attack from all sides at the sight of a lens. Brilliant coastline though.

    From initial research - hard hats are included in the boat trip.

    The cost of the boat trip is about 15-25 depnding of the tour we choose, 2007 prices. The photography one gives us 2 hours on one of the islands and 2 hours on another so its a full day trip to the islands. There are shorter trips around the islands and 1 hour on one of them.

    Lodging I think a budget of 50 per night might be in order but will look closer at this next year once the new prices have been set. Then transport to the port.

    I am prepared to drive if someone wants to share a car.

    Entry cost Adult 12.25
    Car Park at the Brentford Gate: 5.00 - White Peaks is just inside this entrance.

    We are allowed to use tripods and monopods in the Gardens but not in the Glass house.

    There are three eating establishments in Kew and I suggest that we pick one to eat at when we get hungry.

    I made the assumption that no one will want a commercial license. If so then you need to apply by calling Tel: +44 (0)20 8332 5655.

    has had to go for an interview so will not be at Kew,

    Is everyone else (paul, Tom) good to go?

    Re: UK Get together

    Yes, checked the commercial licence cost, 75 per day.
    Judging by the weather forecast, it may not be worth it.
    I think I'll treat our outing as a scouting trip and put in agency photos when the light is better.

    Does that mean you're going Paul? Yes the weather looks as though it's going to be crap but we can always cheat afterwards
    Overbeyond is still game!
    So how many is that in total; 275?

    Yes, I'm still game.
    Must remember to charge the batteries

    With the commercial licence you are allowed to use tripods in the glasshouses, providing you consider other visitors. And if you arrive early, you might even get parking.

    Enjoy the day, guys! Sorry I can't be there - Roger knows all the details.

    Re the possibility of a night shoot in London. The tree is up and the lights go on, I think, tonight. How would next Friday suit?

    Cheers
