    And I wouldn't mind a trip to Louisiana! Maybe someday, eh?

    Cheers,
    Sure! Just be sure to bring a spoon, a wine glass and dancing shoes!

      I'm aiming for the 6AM start

      I will most likely have the new Lumix G1 with me, incidentally - it's due to arrive tomorrow.

        I'm afraid I have to pull out However it is to cover Remembrance Sunday for the local paper so I can't complain. At least its photography related.
        Have a good day out all and I look forward to seeing the photos!

        All the best,

            That's a good enough reason, Phil, although we may need to see some of the pics on the forum as proof! And we want no excuses for the next day out, whenever that might be! (I've been waiting for an opportunity to use that Smilie)

            Seriously, hope your togging goes well on Sunday and that the paper uses lots of your pics and prints them big!

              A bit of a late comer in this discussion, but I might try to join you for the early start if that's OK. I'm in Enfield - not so far away.

                  The day will soon be here and, despite it looking likely that the best of the colours will have passed, I'm sure that the forest will still be beautiful with plenty to photograph.

                  I've had 17 replies, most of them definites, but only 3 (apart from myself) have said they are up for the 6 am start! The advantage of meeting at this time is that if there is a sunrise we will be there to capture it. The disadvantage is that it will be cold, dark and there is no guarantee that the

                  The full list of those that have said they are coming, or possibly coming is:-

                  the4ts

                  Could all the above please confirm if definitely coming (and specify if 6am or 9am), either replying on this thread or by e-mail to johnperriment@btinternet.com

                  On the day my contact mobile number is 07772416988

                  The meeting place, Connaught Water, is situated on the A1069 between Chingford and the A104 (the main road that runs through the centre of the forest). Approaching from Chingford it is situated on the left and has a large car park.


                  I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!

                  Cheers,

                  John
                  Still not sure if I can make it. Is there a postcode or something nearby so I can find directions walking from Chingford Station to Connaught Water? I tried a quick search and couldn't find anything. I have an appalling sense of direction and need all the help I can get!

                  I should know later tonight if I can make it an will reply here. I'll also text you one way or the other, John, tomorrow morning so you know exactly what is happening. If I can, it will be for 9am and I'd have problems getting there on public transport for the earlier start

                      Thanks Ian,

                      Haven't been able to get online today - family duties. For rest of evening I'm at a firework party.

                      It'll be nice to see you if you can make it, the4ts.

                            Lol, I'm glad you finally used that smiley John I just hope I don't give you reason to use this or this ! (although quite what the last is I'm not sure, 4/3rds withdrawl after mistakenly buying a canikon perhaps)

                            As far as the photos, I have attached a couple I like, and perhaps the paper will too.











                            But more importantly, how was the trip? I hope the rain held off. See you at the next one I hope!

                            All the best,
