    Hi Chris, I'm open to suggestions really. I'm up in new mills, which is about 45 minutes away from manchester city centre by train, but i suppose i could get to anywhere that is accessible by train really.

    If you're keen drop me a pm and i'll send you my email address so we can sort something out.

    Cheers

    I always wanted to take a shot of the factories in South Wales where it looks a bit like a scene from Blade Runner at night. Never got out the car though, it was too cold!

    Getting back on topic though, it would be great to do a UK meet somewhere. Count me in if I'm not at a party (it is after all party season)!

    Any sugestions for a meetup site?


    I'd like to nominate the following.

    1/ Manchester Airport (good for anyone wanting to fly in) and the viewing area (Concord) then off to the Museum of Science & Industry / Granada studios in Manchester.

    2/ The Lake District with Ambleside in mind for scenic & Nature shots & good country pubs. (That may swing it with Rob!:lol: )

    3/ A traditional British Castle somewhere?

    Rob, I think you are talking about the Margam Steel Works. A friend of mine works there, from the entrance to where he works is about 3 miles, everything is covered in orange dust, pipes billowing steam, its like mad max. It would be an awesome place for photos. Top gear did some test drives there.

    Plastic Spanner, at 0-60 in 2.4 seconds and a top speed of 170mph I'll be there in 15mins :D

    Did I hear someone say pub? I'm there. This time it's vital we all get accommodation so we can socialise more effectively. :mrgreen: (you know what I mean!)
