I realised this week that I’ve got completely out of whack with the dates for the camera challenges this month – I was trying to post twice a month, but somehow I’ve posted twice every 4 weeks and gained a week!  In order to get myself back on track, I thought I’d turn things over to you guys to a certain extent this week, so that you can tell me where to go and take photos…

This year is the year of the stay-cation, or at least the not-go-very-far-cation.  I’ll be heading to Anglesey and Dublin with some photography friends for a long weekend at the end of August, and down to London at the end of September for another long weekend so that I can (selflessly) accompany my dad to the rugby world cup for his Christmas.  I’ve also got a long weekend down south in July, but as that’s for a memorial service, it’s not really a photographic expedition.  After all that, I’m left with 5 days of leave to play with.  I don’t need to take it all at once, in fact it might be easier to do a couple of long weekends, so I’m trying to work out what to do, and I thought it would be nice to get out with the camera both then and over the 2 May bank holiday weekends.

So here’s my question to you, where would you like me to take my camera?  I’m limited really to where I can drive to in a reasonable time period.  At a push, I’ll contemplate camping at my end destination (unless there’s a nice comfy bed on offer for free at the other end ;o) ), but let’s say for arguments’ sake that my distance limit is within a 100 mile radius of Glasgow if I’m not staying over:

So is there anywhere  in the highlighted area above that you have a burning desire to see a photo of?  (Except Edinburgh, I’m sorry, but Edinburgh crowds in mid-summer freak me out more than I can possibly explain!  And I’m sorry, the North Antrim coast is also off the cards, because, well, I don’t drive Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and the ferry prices are eye watering!)

Have at it folks!
