It's been a while!

It feels like it has been a while since we got together (or maybe I have missed a few) so maybe go for a nice walk somewhere near Leeds so no-one has to travel too far in the cold, sometime in February? How's that for non-specific?!

  • maria

    I'm heading for the rounday fox. Think that's right!

    Morning, can someone please confirm the meeting place? From reading the comments, so far three different places have been mentioned, it's all rather confusing. Thanks

    • David

      Last I understood, by Roundhay Fox pub at 1. Any problems please text me[masked]

    It's a lovely day today - a good day for my first time with others from this group.
    I'd been looking forward to this, especially as it's half term & I could relax & do the things I'd planned to do.
    I fired up my camera & started to get to know it again this week &, on Wednesday, I even got myself a[masked] lens that I'd been promising myself for a while now.

    So why am I not happy!?
    I've got a bad case of the cold virus, that's why?
    Headache & blocked sinuses - no sleep last night!
    Can't come put to play! :-(

    February 14, 2014

  • cathy

    The weather doesnt look promising so have to back out and stay home. It could be safer. Sorry

    February 14, 2014

    • Martin

  • Bluejohn

    The weather currently doesn't look too bad. Can anyone confirm which car park to meet in?

    February 14, 2014

  • Anthony

    Not much to photo in Roundhay park in winter.

    February 14, 2014

  • sue r.

      I asked the same question a while ago, but no one answered. Looking at the map it shows the one near the cafe by the lake. Can anyone confirm this?

      February 13, 2014

    • David

      Don't know. I've usually parked up at the top on the road near the pub. The exhibition gardens are up there too. Pub good for a drink after too

      February 13, 2014

  • Thelma

    Ok, I'd better charge up the battery on my camera then!

    Which car park? The one opposite Tropical World or the one by the lake (& cafe)?

    1 · January 24, 2014

    I agree with Roundhay Park. Free parking, lots of paths, a lake, even a castle. Also over the road there is the Tropical World with 40 species of butterflies, meerkats, terrapins, birds and snakes (admission £3.40).

    1 · January 24, 2014

    • Lucy

      I have heard that the humidity in there is not too good for camera but rest sounds great

      Last time I went it was just butterflies, its got a bit bigger since. Roundhay Park itself is a good long walk round with plenty of photo opportunities and the cafe by the lake has very good meals & snacks.

      January 24, 2014

  • Lucy

    Ok, rounday it is! Will change venue when get on computer

    1 · January 24, 2014

    • David

      There are the "exhibition" gardens opposite tropical world too. Thanks Lucy

      1 · January 24, 2014

  • Lucy changed the location to Roundhay Park

    January 24, 2014

  • maria

    Wooo hoo to rounday!? X

    1 · January 24, 2014

  • Lesley S.

    how about roundhay park

    1 · January 24, 2014

  • Lucy

    Depending on times/weather, could bring tripods and do some night stuff or even light painting?

    January 24, 2014

  • Lucy changed the date and time to Sunday, February 16, 2014 at 1:00 PM

    January 24, 2014

  • Lucy

    The 16th is looking a likely winner then? I am at the deaf society valentines do on the Saturday night so may need a little recovery time so preferably not an early one!! Any venue suggestions?
    I am missing a photo walk at Sheffield botanical gardens and wondered if Leeds had anything similar or whether we fancied something a bit different. Any thoughts?

    January 24, 2014

  • maria

    Can't do the 8th with work! X

    January 24, 2014

  • Jonathan

    Away on the 21st till the 24th (Blackpool magicians convention).
    8th is bad for me.
    Most other weekend days are open (including the valentines weekend, alas )

    January 24, 2014

  • cathy

    Haha sounds good will check hectic calendar & work out when free in Feb should be ok for most weekends at some point apart from 22/23

    January 23, 2014

  • Lesley S.
