I am from Rochester, Kent.

But I live in south Manchester now. Funnily enough, I'm going back down to Rochester for a few days after xmas, to see my Mum and sister, and I'll be taking the 7D for the first time, and a few lenses, to capture pics of the place where I began, and where I grew up for 18 years before moving north for uni in 1989.

Because I was born in the same house my Mum still lives in, and we never moved, I have many very strong memories of Rochester, and I want to get some pics of the place I still see often in my dreams and memories, even though it's changed a lot since my childhood. Some things are still the same, obviously.

A newbie from London here.

Have sold my D80 a few months ago and now ready and quite impatient to buy a T3i/600D or maybe the new T4i...

Ha! I thought I recognised some of your landscape pictures of being around these parts! (And of course the titles of some of them was a giveaway). Lovely part of the world that we live in! Whereabouts are you living to now then?  :D

A Welshman living in essex.

Lets do some sort of regional meet up. It could be sunrise or sunset in an area where someone knows quite well, prehaps a water scene.

A Scot from Kilmarnock ('The Scheme' from the TV show, to be precise) now living in Glasgow, in a flat over-looking the Clyde.

Do you do much in the way of Landscape photography? Scotland has a special place in my heart for it's amazing scenery- I have particular fondness for the rugged desolate beauty of Skye and the far North-West- Torridon, Sutherland etc... Bleak as you can get in stormy weather, out of this world on a (maybe rare!) sunny day, and magical in any weather! (rose tinted specs maybe, but still an amazing place!)  :)

Not as much as I should, or even stills these days in general, mainly using cameras for video just now.

There are some brilliant locations on the west coast, but I try to avoid them as theres so many folk doing the same classic locations but at a better standard than me, Colin Prior has a lot to answer for, I swear there's a tripod footprint worn into the bedrock at Buachaille Etive Mor and the Old Man of Storr.

I do stuff mainly along the clyde coast and islands, as they are generally ignored by everybody bar locals.
