Hi I am new to any group so here goes! I live not far from the coast in Ayrshire where there are many photo opportunities I also have a number of dogs which I show so again plenty of Pics..... although I have a number of cameras I do not know much about them owing to pressure of business but hopefully I will learn through the group.

Hi ViKKi,

This is definitely a good place to learn there are lots of people with experience and knowledge. I have learned loads and really benefitted from critique and feedback on my pics.

Hi Vikki, and welcome.

I didn't realise that sometimes it doesn't rain in Wales!

Scotland can be a triffle damp at times, too! (Or maybe that's only when I visit! )

One part of Scotland I'm not familiar with is Ayrshire so I look forward to seeing some pics. I also like dogs, although I'm really a cat person.

Welcome Vikki
I used to get sunburnt on the Clyde and on Barry Island so it doesn't always rain in Scotland and Wales

Sorry John, maybe I was being a little economical with the truth!

If I cast my mind back I do remember sunbathing on the summit of Moel Hebog in February and cutting short a backpacking trip around Snowdon because of the blistering heat one August!

Thumbs up Re: new member

Hi All
No it does not always rain but we have months and months of wet weather in Ayrshire from October onwards! but when the sunshines thats another matter you could find few places more picturesque.....and not much traffic so can visit the coast in 15mins 3 castles just up the road 1 hr to Loch Lomond so we come to England/Wales for the summer in the caravan (how perverse is that)

Re: new member

Welcome along Vikki

Another ayrshire member there are a handfull of us on here now, im down in Troon. We are certainly spoiled for beaches 10 miles either side so its a dogs paradise. Good group of people on here and they have an encyclopedic knowledge and very friendly too boot , surely Arran is the nicest place to be just now, well when the sun appears and before the Midges quite descend in their millions

Enjoy

Steve
