Did I miss this? Big problems last weekend. We had no power from Friday morning until Monday morning due to the inadequacies of the ridiculous numbers of people involved in moving the electric meter from the inside of the house to the outside wall.

If I missed the trip can we organise another? If it did not happen can I propose that we try new dates.


No you haven't missed it - unless I have too. The idea is still alive if we can agree on a date and time.

I would still like to visit this place, any weekend in July is free so far.

Is the Yorkshire Sculpture Park set in woodland? If so would now be a good time to visit and make use of the autumn colour?

Not that many trees at YSP Barrie, it's not the best of places for Autumnal photography, it's OK if you like statues and sculptures though

I'd have thought Thorpe Perrow would have been much better this time of year, despite YSP been far easier for me to get to.

Having said that if a YSP meet goes ahead I'll do my best to make it, still not got my photo mojo back.

Thanks Alan, just wondered. I think the camera club is organising a day at Thorpe Perrow soon, following a good visit last year.

Thorp Perrow is well worth a visit at this time of year, full of colour. link
Fritzthedog introduced me to Studley Royal with a mini meet. October and November is the rut and also on every Saturday evening during October they illuminate Fountains Abbey.

The Sculpture Park is well worth a visit and the following pictures may help to provide a snippet of what there is available to see.

All pictures taken with a Pentax K5 and DA 18-135mm. Variable lighting during the day but at least it stayed dry!

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.
