Forecast is "Yellow warning of rain" for the next 3 days!
Look on the bright side, it sounds like you'll all have plenty of opportunity to get some photos for December's FPOTY theme, and Andy can try out that yellow waterproof camera he bought the other week. You see, there's always a silver lining. Do watch out for cabin fever setting in though! ;)

The weather was really windy and wet yesterday (REALLY windy!). We went to some nearby waterfalls, which were in magnificent spate, but didn't even take a "proper" camera. Today Mrs R and @kendo and I went to Glen Etive in very misty conditions, with light rain, no wind (at first). Parked at the lake and got about 3 shots with nice wispy cloud reflections in the loch, then the wind got up and the rain came back in again, so back home for a bacon butty!

On LF ?? or did the weather put you off trying the Chroma?

Has anyone managed to get a LF shot yet?

I bought a couple of Copal 0 lens boards.

And I can confirm that a large format photo was taken by A. N. Other, and I have the photos of it happening.

The wet and wind have returned, and the weather's not too hot either. :D

Yes, looks like this will go down not as the F&C Scotland week, but the F&C Scotland Wednesday! (And I hope that hasn't spooked the weather gods too much...)

Lovely sunny autumn morning in south Cheshire today, 14 degrees, blue sky and cotton wool clouds with an occasional light breeze, just saying! :whistle: Errr… put that baseball bat down Mrs Snap! :exit:

Bloody gorgeous, excellent light, good clouds and surprisingly warm. We are all on the beach by the house waiting for the sunset and I'm in a tee shirt, the rest are wearing coats coa hats and scarves and gloves but they are all girls. :D

You're on the beach with a load of girls?

That is not how I imagined a F&C outing would end up.

You're clearly the tough Northerner, used to the frozen wolf-infested wastelands of Crewe, that has no need for coats or hats. Pah, southern softies...

Glad you finally got a nice day up there, the temperature got up to 24 degrees in south Cheshire this afternoon with wall-to-wall sunshine; so you can tell Steve that the locals can't move in Crewe for wolf fur from where the overheating animals have desperately been trying to scratch off their winter coats! ;) It's still 16 degrees here tonight at midnight, so at least The Snaps can console themselves with the thought that their central heating shouldn't have been running much while they've been away! :D

That was a flippin' gorgeous spot to chill out for a couple of hours. We planned to take some photos of the Chroma's there but, by the time they'd all arrived, the wind had got up too much. Sorry Steve, if the weather forecast for the rest of the week is accurate, you may have to just put up with the ones I posted to your Facebook page last night :(

Thanks for the photos last night Janet. It's great to see some 'action' shots of at least Nick's Chroma :0) Maybe a group shot around the kitchen table would be the better option!

Exactly, that graphic shows the area where I grew up North of Inverness on the East coast has very low rainfall. :)
