Photo Jaunt - Oundle 28th May

Guys,

I was organising (in a loose sense) a photo meet on Saturday 28th May in Oundle - so Midlands area.

I will be meeting up with a couple of Olympus and Canon friends of mine for a walk and then eat/drink at a local pub.

Nothing too serious.
  • 1030 start
  • 4 mile walk taking in -
  • Locks,
  • River Nene,
  • Historic Village/Town,
  • lots of photo taking and chatting
  • 1300 Eat / drink

Hopefully summer won't have finished by then

If you are interested let me know

Graydon

Graydon, I'd love to be able to come and meet some people from here... but I'll be in hopefully sunny Hawaii then. (I missed the Loughborough meet too )
I hope you all have a great time

Now you didn't have to tell me why you couldn't make it. Really envious now seriously, hope you have a great time.

Sorry, didnt mean to make you envious...

I keep looking and hoping theres a photo trip/meet I can go on, but it never seems to fit with my schedules... It'd be great to be able to learn from others, try out different kits etc... Oh well, I'll keep checking if theres other trips I would be able to go on

You're forgiven as long as you take and share some great sunny photos. Watching the Simpsons this evening Homer and Bart sat on a beach in Hawaii observing a beautiful sunset - We'll expect the same from you though not so cartoon-like.

No problem Homer.

Don't worry we are considering doing something in June too.

Excellent news Ewan. I have around 8 others from other places interested. All looking forward to a friendly meet and knowledge-share*. I'm out and about at the moment but will post the PDF showing the meeting place and route later today.

Re: Photo Jaunt - Oundle 28th May

Getting closer... Around 8 people so far: anyone else??

Starting in the centre of Oundle we're going to follow the published AA / pub walk. Setting off at 1030 and aiming for a Jaunt that will get us back into Oundle around 1300.

Currently figuring out the best car park to use will post final information here on Friday or PM me for further direct contact details.

I have two Oly users coming along inclusing Ewan in this thread.

Fingers crossed the weather holds up!

Re: Photo Jaunt - Oundle 28th May

Hi all,

Just a quick update for those of you who were interested. The photo Jaunt was a great success - it was enjoyed by all attending.

It was brand agnostic but we did have an E3 there. The focus was just to have fun, exchange knowledge, enjoy the countryside and a good pub.

An excellent, and humourous, review of the day can be found here:

http://nogbads-photo-adventures.blog...ent-seven.html

And some of my shots can be seen on my Flickr Pages and on RedBubble

We have a few more Jaunts planned and as always you are all very welcome.

Next Jaunt is planned for 17th July @ Hemingford Abbots, Cambridgeshire. PM me if you are interested.
