    Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens - Sunday 1st May

    Sorry, not much notice for this meet but wondered if anybody wanted to drive up to Mt Tomah Gardens next Sunday. We could make this a macro/ landscape meet - there should be lots of colour by now. I have a few things coming up on my calendar so really this is the only day that I can make it. If we leave it any later we run the risk of there being no leaves on the trees.
    I would suggest that we meet up there at 10am which is the opening time of the garden.

    PLEASE POST IN THIS THREAD IF YOU ARE COMING.

    Hi Nellie

    I should be able to make it and can probably pick someone up on the way if not too far off route.

    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Great to have you along Bec - there will be plenty of other photo opportunities other than macro. Lots of mountain scenery and maybe some wildlife.

    I'm hoping for a bit of mist and light rain like we got last year, makes for excellent water drops on the flowers.

    Looking forward to meeting you Phil.
    Hopefully the rain will be all gone by Sunday but a bit of morning mist would be great.

    Lets all meet at the shop.

    I wondered where you had got to Tony or maybe it's me. I have been so busy lately I haven't been on the forum much. Hope you can make it.

    Be good to catch up Tony, haven't seen you for ages, thought you might have moved to China permanently or something. :P For those who want to give macro a go but don't have a dedicated lens, I'll be bringing my Kenko extension tubes for those who want to try them out (for those who made the smart choice and bought Nikon of course).

    Still contemplating this one! Will confirm later today but of course would love to borrow extension tubes if I do come as I still haven't bought any!
