Otley Chevin

  • August 11, 2013 · 1:00 PM

Great forest & moorland trails with magnificent views another first for the group, discussed on way home from Yorkshire Wildlife park today & a few happy to ferry anyone who doesn't drive from a local station best one to be arranged once Nos. known. Following confusion with meeting time for Pugney's I've changed the time for Otley to 1pm lunchtime Sunday 11 August.  There are 2 car parks on East Chevin Road the plan is to meet in the top one so that we have a contingency of tea/coffee & cakes in the tea room opposite.  If anyone's not sure where that is or doesn't have transport let me know and we can arrange to meet in Otley centre & drive up together. Anyone who doesnt have my no. I'll post it on here a few days before the meetup

    Have to just say, our two to three hour trip turned in to six hours as the group got on so well. To me, that is what the spirit of meetup is about. Proud to be part of it today. Thank you Cathy for organising this one.

      And even involved light exercise rambling around the Chevin. Apologies for the not so musical tones of Loulou, but Davids impromptu rendition of the Teddy Bears picnic certainly caught the attention of passers by

    I'm bringing Lou Lou my mad, very energetic springer spaniel for anyone who wants to take photos of a dog & can get her to sit still long enough or is quick enough to capture her before she runs out of shot

    • Lucy

      Yay :-) We are not quick enough with camera but love dogs!

      Hi Akram. Wilkinson is fine. If we say 12:20 that will give us plenty of time to get to Otley. See you tomorrow. P.S i drive a Black Fiat Bravo 58 plate :-)

  • cathy

    T Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow, Mehdi has posted a link further down showing where the car park is, thanks Mehdi, & I've added a description to help find it if anyone's unsure. Akram you're welcome to join us, as the others said we usually spend 2 to 3 hours wandering around & taking pictures, it is all woodland pathways which are very well made in most parts and reasonably level but dependant which direction we take there maybe a few small hills

    August 10, 2013

    • cathy

      That's the one it's the white slightly curved patch to the right of the picture there's an old farmhouse & car park almost opposite, if you're coming down the hill from the airport direction the car parks on your right & the farmhouse used to have TEAS painted on the wall if it's still there

    As I have developed some nerve problem in my heel would it be adviseable to come, would it be a long walk and could I get some assistance with a lift to meeting point from Otly town centre please.

    August 9, 2013

    • Lucy

      It's up to you - the last couple of these I have been on have involved 2 or 3 hours of walking with lots of photo's in between. I have gone home tired but am a bit unfit! Depends how much walking you can do?

      August 10, 2013

    • Jonathan

      Same here, expect around three hours of walking. If it is in a forrest, then a little harder than beng on the flat, but will be slower.

      August 10, 2013

  • maria

    Looking forward to it by the way! : D

    August 9, 2013

  • maria

    Hmmm, leaving it a bit last minute and then have realised I don't know where I'm going! Do you have an address with postcode, does the top car park mean the one at the top of the road? Cheers x

    If it would cause any hinderane to the group should I stay away?

    August 9, 2013

  • Jonathan

    Despise my face as it is, but need to get a couple of pictures of the annoying thing.
    If anybody is willing to attempt the impossible and can capture a likeness that does not make babies cry, and rabbits faint, then I would be very appreciative.

    August 8, 2013

    • Lucy

      And im sure si will be bribed by post walk pint to pose for us!

    • cathy

      I'm sure a holiday with your children will be much more fun and involve taking lots of memorable photos look forward to meeting you soon, any suggestions for the next meetup would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you very much for changing time to 13.00 it makes things easy for those who have to travel by buses. Meeting in Otley town centre is also very good idea. Sorry for not making it yesterday. Buses messed me about. There was a diversion between Bradford and Wakefield. It took me 40 minutes longer to get to Wakefield and my bus arrived at 11.40. So it was too late and had to ring Jacquline to cancel picking me up. On a Sunday it is best idea to meet at 13.00 at a Railway Station or bus station so it is easy to get there. Thanks.

    Sounds good. May be able to find some fungus. Happy to take people through focus stacking and HDR. Had a few days course on how to photograph mushrooms and the like.

    June 14, 2013

    • Lucy

      Head explodes more lol. Was reading a way of getting decent splash shots without all flash gear - will give it a go and show you if successful! Macro shot is impressive - shows how very close you can get! I love macro but will have to spend cash on house before next lens! I really wanted the d7000 - I fell in love a little, but big price jump and don't know how much will use. I used it doing a portrait lesson. Guess d7100 is similar so am jealous!

      June 21, 2013

    • Lucy

      Ok..... Had quick play with strawberries. Was a bit messy and didn't have long. But as you can see from my uploaded slightly out of focus pic, I now agree that it's a nightmare!!

      June 24, 2013

  • Lucy

    I think I can make this one - will confirm for definite nearer the time
