    Eh up, given the number of Northern based photographers on this forum what's the general feeling towards a Yorkshire based meet?

    Potential locations are almost too numerous but if we made it somewhere in the West Riding or the west of the North Riding it might encourage some of the less fortunates from the wrong side of the Pennines to venture across and see how the righteous live.

    Anyone up f'r it?

    Which side is the wrong side, may I ask?

    I'd be up for that. Whitby, perhaps?

    The dark side i.e. West side. Or, in other words, the 'orrible bit the M6 goes through before it gets to Cumbria! Okay, okay, I'll type it, L-a-n-c-a-s-h-i-r-e. Urgh, right, I'm off for a bath now.

    I'm from the dark side!!! :mad:

    Whereabouts are you thinking of, then? Ingleton/Ribblehead is nice. Waterfalls and what-not.

    Really? Nevermind, we'll still let you in to Yorskhire as long as you have six months left on your passport.

    I suppose location will depending on who's coming, where they're coming from and what they'd like to shoot. I can take four adults with some degree of comfort in my car if people fancy the Dales etc but it may be easier to meet in a town or city with a rail link if not.

    I can take 6 people in my Galaxy. So long as you all put your tripods on your knees!

    So people could get trains to Leeds/Lancaster and be picked up.

    I can pick from York or Leeds, but to be fair if they're on the train anyway Harrogate would be so much easier!

    All this is a bit academic though as it's only thee and me showing any interest! We could do it on a tandem, bags be on the back.

    What's wrong with 'Arrogate? :eek: I did actually mean that it would be easier to do a pick up in 'Arrogate as opposed to doing a tour there. :cool:

    She's not old enough to go to Harrogate! :D

    (Actually, considering the amount of time I spent there as a kid - my grandparents lived there - that's clearly a silly statement even for me... :D)

    hmm, will have to keep an eye on this thread..might be up for it depending on where and when.

    Our lass worked in 'Arrogate for a while and she said she's never met such a load of stuck up people before in her life - worse than York.. (she's from Wolvo' where they are a friendly bunch) :D

    If you meet up at Whitby and it is after the 6th April then you can go on the NYMR right into Pickering.
