Location Shoot - Leigh-on-Sea

  • May 21, 2014 · 7:15 PM

Due to lack of confirmation from Coalhouse Fort, this Meetup is now confirmed to be:

Leigh-on-Sea, an opportunity for evening pictures down in the old town with the possibility of golden hour shots of the estuary.

We will meet at Saffron Plastics for 7.15pm and leave at 7.30pm sharp to travel down to Leigh in as few cars as possible.

We should arrive at Old Leigh at around 7.50pm and meet at the Old Buoy memorial by the end of the Belton Bridge to leave at 8pm for a wander around.

Parking in the car park below Belton Bridge is apparently free after 6pm and additional parking is available on the bridge itself.

Please try and come via Saffron so that we can share the cars efficiently, but if you are travelling directly due to a large unneccesary journey, please let us know so that we are not waiting.

A map and directions are in the files section or here:  http://files.meetup.com/470880/leighdirections.pdf

    A good location, but the light wasn't kind to us.

    Despite the promise of torrential rain, we avoided it. The skies were grey but quite interesting at times with a bit of purple and pink to chuck into the mix. I have to say that we were incredibly fortunate to miss all the rain as it's now chucking it down! As always, great company and a good giggle. Even had a game of "bait the chav"! I didn't get as many interesting shots as I would normally do but my brain was in "Ow! My foot hurts" mode instead of on the "Ooh! Shiny" setting.

    Russell, my mobile number is[masked] in case the rain is too bad and you go to Saffron Court instead of Leigh

    May 21, 2014

    • Russell H.

      Thanks Tricia, I will probably go to Leigh unless it is tipping down, I will give you a call if I change my mind.

  • Phil P

    Sorry it's late notice but i can't make it tonight now.
    Hope you all have a good time and get lots of fantastic pictures

    The Met Office radar shows a lot of rain heading north from the continent but it appears to be bordering over us. There is a possibility that we may get away with it, or we may not. There is a possibility that we may cancel Leigh and end up at Saffron by default. Please keep up to date by checking the site regularly. If it's hammering in Basildon, then it will definitely be hammering it in Southend!
