Hello everyone! This is a somewhat belated post, but the blame rests entirely with this forum :smile: It is so easy to become engrossed in this site, that I didn't give any thought whatsoever to introducing myself. I am based in the N.W. of England, in deepest, darkest Lancashire, close to the beautiful county of Cumbria. It's a pity I don't do landscape photography, because we are naturally endowed with some of the finest scenery that England has to offer. I'm pretty much a single subject photographer; that subject being my son. I love the honesty and spontaneity of kids. I am a darkroom practitioner and have been these last 30 odd years, although I readily admit to having gaps in my knowledge of galactic magnitude. I think this has to be the most informative, interesting and friendly forums I have ever used. I have to say that when viewing other forums, I'm regularly amazed (aghast would be a better word) at how rude and opinionated some contributers can be. Maybe it's a digital thing!! keep up the good work, BLIGHTY.

Welcome. Lake District is a nice place for photography. And so is the Forest of Bowland.
I'm sure you will like this forum.
Cheers

Welcome from Cheshire,

You must be nuts if you can live here in the NW without yomping agonisingly over miles and miles of hills and standing in freezing cold sleet on the side of a mountain. Whats wrong with you man!

I can relate. I have young kids and they probably wonder why Mummy doesn't have a black nose with glass inserted in the end like Daddy does.

If you do ever wish to try landscapes, look me up! I promise not to raise religion, politics or leicas.

I was nuts and I did yomp agonisingly over miles of hills in my yoof. That's probably why my knees are knackered :smile: I did 'do' landscape photography for many years, but much of the time the inspiration wasn't forthcoming. To be honest (and I know this is going to sound so corny), I reckon it was just a preparation for the altogether more enjoyable obsession of photographing my son. Blimey! opinionated or what!! Regards, BLIGHTY.
