    Awww internet {{{hugs}}} for you Roger. You must be shattered.

    Wouldn't it be great to all meet at Mike's daughter's wedding. Can you imagine us 4 shooting her wedding?! Amazing!
    And what a nice birthday present for me to meet you 3. Maybe even be joined by Bev this time

    Re: UK Members ... Met

    Just two more - we have to leave something for Roger to post!!

    One of Paul going all horticultural on us (dandelions move slower than F1 cars as a rule!) - and one from the reservoir - shot at about 450mm and cropped to show the trees off nicely.

    Re November - I can do any Saturday except the 17th (obviously!). I am on holiday Nov 25th which means I could do Sunday then as well, if that helps. If the wetlands centre sounded good to people we would need to check if there would be much to see - it is a centre for migratory birds, and I don't know how much happens there at that time of year. There could be lots - I just don't know. I could always phone them for advice.

    Cheers
    Mike

    Mike,

    You would already be there on the 17th and in every photo Just kidding.

    Just got home and started the upload. Wish I'd taken JPEG as well now.

    So, you don't want us crashing your daughters wedding? I think it would be a chance in a lifetime not only for us but also for your daughter.

    Re: UK Members ... Met

    Alison .. it's a very small wedding - only 24 people, 12 from each side. My daughter doesn't mind in the slightest if I bring a friend to help with the formal stuff, but I think that four or five people would be noticed! Also, while I can no doubt work with one friend, I am not sure how chaotic it could be with a regiment, especially if we hope maybe to attract one or two other SE England folk!

    In any case, while it would be lovely to see all of you, my place is with my family on this occasion and something else might be more appropriate for a forum shoot.

    Cheers
    Mike

    Aaah ok. Well, I'm no good at the formal stuff, (wish I was).
    And, I agree, it's not easy if several people are calling you in different directions it's hard to know which photographer to look at.
    Although, it's a little way off, I'd love to see some of the shots you get

    What a great day it was - thanks to Mike and Paul for great company and a lovely time.

    Here comes my contribution: These were taken before we all met.

    More tubes - the dragon fly that I said I wouldn't get. Loupey - how you catch these in flight is beyond me.

    LOL Yeah ok I'm sure Gina would LOVE to come along! And maybe Bec, and maybe the twins, and maybe Danielle haha. "The list is endless", she says smugly

    I am quite suprised none of you got a shot of all of you together. That would have been one shot I would HAVE to get if I came to meet you all!

    It's a shame you didn't get a shot of the neighbours faces lol. I would have loved to have seen the looks!

    Words just can't express how much I have enjoyed sharing this outing with you three. Thanks for including your PR friends in this photo adventure.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Me neither, and we did have a tripod, too.

    Oh and 3 Canon flashes between us, I'm sure we could have lit it properly if you'd been there, Alison.
    Plus I'd have got the reflector out, and the softboxes - which stayed in the car all day.
    Next time, eh?
    Maybe I'll get you infected with macro-itis too

    Sorry Roger.

    Roger, I spotted you photographing the stained glass.
    Have you processed your shots of that yet?
    I'd be interested to compare our visions to Mike's.
