Jaunt around Wat Tyler

  • Feb 3, 2013 · 9:30 AM

A quick Sunday morning jaunt round the eastern end of Wat Tyler Country Park. Mainly to get some early photographic practice in and specifically geared towards our new members. A bit short notice, but I have discussed it with a few members who seem to be interested.

Anybody is welcome, especially if you're willing to help give advice and tips.

We will meet at 9.30am at the Visitor Centre (near the main car park) and have a gentle couple of hours wandering around the marina, village green and sculpture areas.

Weather seems to be a bit edgy for Sunday and the event may be cancelled at short notice. Please check after 8am on the day to see the current status. If it is cancelled, it will be rescheduled for the following Sunday.

    Unfortunately, there's always a downside on that method. If gas turns to solid, you can end up with a rather unfortunate situation!

    Still if I remember rightly Owen you found a unique way of warming yourselve up, it had a different effect on those around you...

    It was bloomin' nippy especially when the wind got up. Good company and a great demonstration of off camera flash. Didn't know it whould have THAT much of an effect. Plenty of opportunities to take various styles of photography even if them Blue Tits were being a pain in the 'arris.

    Good jaunt though a little cold out by the water, maybe next time you could bring heaters :)

    As a reminder, here are some before and after photos using a CPL filter aka polarised filter/circular polarised light filter that Ian mentioned.

    Well worth the money if you are taking holiday photos or landscapes

    Cold but very rewarding.

    Might I suggest aiming to be there around 9:15 since you may get caught at the level crossing for 10 minutes...

    Mind you, it's Sunday so we should be ok....

    Weather looks Ok for tomorrow morning. No sign of any rain but the sun may be lacking. Twill be a little on the nippy side so make sure that you bring the jacket for the camera :P

    All being well, I look forward to meeting you by the Visitor Centre in the car park at 9.30am. Any problems, ring the BPMG mobile number on[masked] after 8.30am

    Sorry... Would love to come to a meet which is on a day other than a Wednesday evening but I'm up to my ears in finishing off a Uni project all this weekend. :-(

    Fingers crossed to make one of the next ones.

    Have a great morning peeps.

      No problem, Terry. Hope to see you at a future meeting

  • Susan J.

    Am getting there early so will hopefully meet up. What's your number?

    February 2, 2013

    • Owen M.

      I'll have the BPMG phone on me: [masked]

    Just to clarify, the meeting point will be in the main car park next to the visitor centre (shown on Google Street View below but on the car park side) and NOT the Green Centre. I always thought that the main Visitor Centre was called the Green Centre, but that's further up the road. Sorry for any confusion!
