Skye is beautiful and has some very moody weather which sometimes makes for great photos.

Eilean Donan is a very pretty setting on a clear day. As you follow the road down and come to a large curve in the road, we stayed at the BB which is on the edge of Loch Duich - Glomach House. There are the ruins of a small chapel very close to it there. You can also see Otters along the edge of the loch there if you are very lucky (early morning or early evening is a good time to see them).

Oooh, your trip is bringing back wonderful memories for me.

Some photos from my weekend in south of France. We based ourselves in Nice and rented a car. Seems like we were lucky to get back, what with all the air traffic controller strikes in France!

Like these two especially the cactus's

I think so, love to know how much they aid for their wedding photographers and videogaphers. Couldn't even afford shoes:D:D

Hi guys, far too often awy from here nowadays, more gret KF shots showing.. so jealous!

I've been busy with a couple of weddings a month, so not really done anything socially, apart from this reshoot of my niece, one year after we took her photo at 1 day old!

Oh and I had the pleasure of my motherboard dyeing a few days after a wedding!
Thankfully no data loss, and I now have a new home built i54670k (Haswell) system, and installed my OS (Windows 8) on the SSD thats been sitting around for months..

Everything is running super fast now including;

I've just installed it on the new PC.. wow if flies... not done any PP in anger yet, but it won't be long

(there went my budget for a 600 flash :()

Anyway can't wait for the Bird of Prey shoot in a few weeks, but considering something in a week or so

###############

22/23 June is the presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth (Perigee) until August 10, 2014 , and it co-insides with a full moon .

Whilst these Supermoons mean the moon is considerably closer to the earth, it often doesn't really mean much in terms of relative size in a photograph. But if it's an excuse to get of my butt and photograph something then all for the better.

There are 4-6 supermoons a year on average.

So I propose an evening meet on Saturday 22nd to photograph Canary Wharf with the moon passing through.

I have investigated the positioning and time of the moon on that night, and it will rise at 21:21.

It's not the optimum angle, but should have some potential.

I have taken photos from that location (well a little bit south of that spot) with reasonable success.

Hello all - just found this thread/group and thought I'd jump in and say hi. I'm based in London (Wimbledon actually). Somehow I've managed to miss POTN's existence until recently...

This is quite a lengthy thread but the most recent pics are gorgeous! I'd better start adding some soon, else I'm going to feel guilty for taking (looking) and not giving.

Anyway, look forward to meeting you all in here, and perhaps one day at some event :smile:

Hi Pieter, I'm just down the road in Morden. Welcome.

Yeah, why not - any excuse to get out and take photos! :) Let me know if you end up going and I'll try make it. Coincidentally, I used to live just down the road from the spot you're suggesting, yet somehow never thought of photographing Canary Wharf...

It seems In my speed flicking through a weeks post's I missed this event;

http://www.eventzilla.​net/web/event?eventid=​2138984653 (external link)
Event Description
Welcome to the first-ever Advanced Photographer 24 hour photography shoot. This is a free, informal event and what you shoot is up to you but London has so much potential that you won’t run out of subjects to point your lens at.
The aim is to meet up at 5.30pm onwards at the Kingsway Hall Hotel (Shelley, Dryden and Byron Suite), 66 Great Queen Street, Covent Garden, London WC2B 5BX. There will be an official briefing at 6pm, and representatives from the magazine will be on hand until 8pm to take registration forms, hand out lanyards and provide details of our contests.

I'm considering joining both things into one long night... maybe... We've done these before and it's a hard slog... Remember the 28 days later meets!!!!

Oh thank you so much:D So glad you went there and found it. Oh boy what a memory that brings back the day we went there. Although it was a drizzly misty drive, it was a wonderful drive to it and then on arriving, we were greeted with a large mug of tea.

The very sad thing was, it was Sheena who told us about the London bombings atrocity that had just happened. Such a beautiful, peaceful, remote place to be and hear that awful news. We walked down to the shoreline and simply reflected on that news - I cant think of a better place to be at a time like that. Its good for the soul.

What direction you heading in next? Maybe I can think of another wonderful place for you to go lol.

Thank you, Linda for pointing me in this direction. We had good weather, and the scenery on that drive over the hills was just incredible. Easily the best scenic drive yet!

We weren't really expecting the Tea Hut to literally be a shed/lean-to, but Sheena was such a dear old character. It was probably the worst cup of coffee I've ever had at a coffee shop (except for Starbucks, which is always awful), but the experience is the best I've had by far. Sheena is getting elderly now, she was talking about packing it in. I think she'll do it for as long as she can walk from the house to the shed.

We started off with a walk along the loch to loch carron weavers. Then went to Dornie for a coffee (and met a wonderful old couple who talked to us, and generally talked over each other in doing so), went to the castle, and then to Corran for our coffee. Managed to have good weather for much of the day.

Off to the loch inver/cape wrath area at the weekend, and then a couple of days on Mull (staying in tobermory).

LOL, yes, I thought it best not to give any hints on the tea hut lol. I did wonder whether she was still able to do it. She is a very good friend of the woman who runs the B&B we stayed at, thats how we came to know about it. Our drive there was quite magical and I remember thinking was that road ever going to stop somewhere lol.

I will have a look on the map to see if there are any places near your next area - there are so many wonderful places in the Highlands, its difficult to choose to cram in on one visit lol. There are a couple of rather nice places I can think of but will have to refer to the map to see if its on/near your route.

We spent 1 day at Tobermory as we didnt have much time so you will probably see more than I did. Look out for dolphins on the boat trip over there as they frequently swim alongside the ship. Oh, and if you are going to Mull from the Oban ferry and get the chance, do go in the main fish and chip shop there - first class fish and chips!
