Re: Chaffered Gorges

Hi Dave, is that a U3A Photography Group? I have been unsuccessful in finding one that either was just into Photoshop, or the Lunch that went with the trip afterwards

Yes it is. Not very big, and no photoshop, mainly trips out and the odd looking and critiquing our images.

I lead a U3A photo group, and we do what Dave says. It started out as a Photoshop training group, but soon migrated to a small group of people who knew how to use it, and go out on photo shoots. We also do indoors portraiture and table-top shoots in the winter.

Re: Chaffered Gorges

As I work for the Essex Wildlife Trust, I'll warn them you are coming

Like all these places, you have to be really good at spotting the creatures and it helps to have someone with a good eye for them.

I'm not at all good at creature spotting, and don't have the right mind set, to sit waiting for them to emerge...

It will be interesting to see your pictures of things.
