    Mini meetup / Lessons west of the Range

    Hi all! I live about 5 hours west of Brisbane, on the western side of the Toowoomba range. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for any mention of a meetup out this way, although I'd definitely try to go to any on the other side of the mountains.

    I've been in contact with Dave about having a / some lessons and he mentioned that if there was enough interest in a group meeting, he could come out this way.

    Is anyone interested? It could be anywhere from Toowoomba westward. If there isn't enough interest for him to come out, perhaps someone would like to go down with me?



    I very much welcome and appreciate your feedback and constructive criticism!

    If you would like to edit any image I post here, please feel free to do so! I would love to see what you can come up with and learn your method.

    I am (well... we are... my wife and myself) will be at Warwick for couple of days. 5-6/Aug. Hoping to do some photo and some golf later in the day Would that be close enough to your way?

    When the weather slightly warms up I reckon do a meet up at Toowoomba again. It's been a while since I've been there and we might even stay in the camper Saturday night and have 2 days there. I will keep you posted on that one. Maybe around September.
    Thanks for looking....Cheers,

    Funny that you mention this! From 10th - 18th September, Jondaryan Woolshed has their Heritage Festival. I've only been once, a couple of years ago, but I've been told that it's a really great, especially on the weekend. I was thinking about asking if anyone wanted to do a meetup for this, but didn't want to ask too many things at once.

    Well there you go. I will get back to you with that one. For a photographers point of view...we don't really want crowds but then again it should be a good weekend.
    Stay tuned

    Carnival Of Flowers is on again too around the time of the Woolshed Heritage festival.

    Bec are you around Roma or thereabouts? I'm hoping to get up to the back of Canarvon Gorge (camping around Big Bend) at some stage before the end of the year if you're interested in a camping weekend - 3 to 4 days?

    John Elliott is another local who does workshops around this region. I been to a few and keep in touch with him regularly. You just missed one at Augathella although that may have been a bit too far away.

    I'm in Chinchilla! I've never been to Canarvon but I would absolutely LOVE to go! Please keep me informed about this trip.

    It would be just my luck that I missed the Augathella lesson. Hopefully as I become more active here, I'll hear about these things before they're over.

    I'm starting to think that I probably should have created two threads. :

    Could anyone interested please let me know which one (or both), you'd like to attend? For the lesson/s with Dave, there will be a cost. I personally would like to have the lesson before any of the events, since I really need some help, so perhaps some time in August if that suits the majority?

    Bec what sort of lesson are you looking to do with Dave? That may give people more of an idea if it's something they would attend. I've done stuff with Dave and Kane and it's well worth it.

    Sounds interesting- I have just spent my tax refund and am now the very proud owner of a 7D canon, 50mm f1.8, 100-400 f4.5-5.6 telephoto lens and am keen to take my first DSLR shots. Any lessons to shorten the dreaded reading of manuals appeals. Weekend meets are always fun.. so count me in if it is not too far from the south coast.

    The Bunya's sound great, Ian! Everything is a bit dead and sad out my way, so towards Toowoomba is probably a really good idea. Anyone else interested, or have other suggestions? I'll check in with Dave tomorrow with numbers and see if there are enough and how much it might cost, and keep you posted!

    I would be interested in a western meet up and camping trip- I am from brissie but go out to cecil plains and dalby quite often for my wifes work and last time spent 2 nights at jondaryian WS in the cabins, i got some good shots when no one else was around of the old wool sheds and gear and trucks.

    regards richard

    What about early spring in Tenterfield/ Stanthorpe- There are 3 national parks close by including Bald rocks Nat Park- Sand erosion forms at Ghost Gully just outside Tenterfield - old railway stations at Tenterfield & Wallangarra- lots of wineries and berry farms at Stanthorpe- all the stone fruit trees in flower - lots of balancing rock formations- and a stupendous old cottage called Henri's cottage attached to an awful pink coloured motel across the road from the Tenterfield information centre?????
