Hi from Bonnie Scotland

Hi everyone. Been lurking on the forum for a while and thought it was abut time I introduced myself.

Owned an Olympus camera for a few years now and had the E410 originally but when that developed a fault I replaced it with the 510.

I love landscape and macro photography and have been dabbling in sports, street and events more recently.

I'll post some images up in the Foto Fair and Looking for Improvement boards soon.

Thanks
George

Re: Hi from Bonny Scotland

Hi George,

I'm a lurker as well. There's lot's of great information and advice on this site. I'm also mainly into landscape, but trying to get into wildlife as well, as there's plenty of great inspiration here in Scotland.

We do have some great locations for photography. I'll put some photos up once I have reached 5 posts.

Welcome mate. What part of Scotland are you from. It's my favourite holiday venue, I find the people very friendly and helpful, and your scenery is sublime.

Just north of Dundee. I travel a fair bit around Scotland and favourite places are Skye and Glencoe.

Nice. I really like the Perth area,not too far from Dundee, and the highlands.
We've spent many happy holidays in and around Aviemore, and regularly visit friends in Lossiemouth. Lovely country.

Re: Hi from Bonny Scotland

Have you paid a visit to the Wee Tea Room and Photo Gallery on Skye? The owner Jon Pear used to frequent this forum and posted some cracking images. He's moved to another system now but still runs the Tea Room though. I'm told it's well worth a visit and they do wonderful cakes too. One day I'll get there myself.
