Photography JC 11:44pm, 26 April 2009

I set up a group like this for Edinburgh and it has been a resounding success. Therefore, in true Scottish style I have decided to create this group to encompass ALL of SCOTLAND. All we ask is that your photographs submitted to the group are GeoTagged and were taken in Scotland.

Feel free to introduce yourself in this thread.

Fiona. central scotland, photography addict, shoots with a canon.,

Note: for anyone reading this thread and who is under the impression that the "banter" is a bit close to the bone - most of us have known each other for over 18 months (yes, it really is that long) and have met personally several times over that period so we "know" one another rather well.


Now I've said that I can say THIS

Life really is better on the DarkSide - raspberry raspberry raspberry

Good point, norm, its easy to forget that not everyone knows each other that well........... so i will apologise now if i upset anyone excepting of course norm whome I take it as my god given purpose on earth to upset by slaggin off Nikon on each and every occasion i can............... and you only think its better Norm cos you have never tasted the sweet taste of Canon! ;) and raspberrys are only ever going to be second grade strawberries! so there!
Raspberries = Nikon
Strawberries = Canon

and we canonites have the cream!
ahead detail [deleted] 9 years ago
David, Edinburgh-ish, shoots and scores.

unknown jelly [deleted] 9 years ago
Damn and blast all these reprobate Canonites - I used to have an AE-1, AV-1, A1, T90 and an ESO thingy many moons ago but then I saw the light (or should that be the Dark?)

Raspberries = Champagne you know

Nicky, based in Edinburgh. I've been taking pictures for the last 3 years or so but still learning every time I take the camera* out.

* Full-frame Nikon primarily (hope that makes Norm feel better) and cropped frame Minolta when I need more reach/a rest.

Thanks for setting up the group guys - it will be good to get ideas for photographic locations!
unknown jelly [deleted] 9 years ago
Nicky - HA! I knew there were others lurking

Come on the DarkSiders

Don't worry people this will not turn out to be another one of those Canon v Nikon threads ...

Fi - fizzy vinegar ? I'll have to show you a few things

McRusty PRO Posted 9 years ago. Edited by McRusty (member) 9 years ago
Hello and thanks for the invite. Russell here, from the hills above Loch Ness. Some great pictures in the group. Is there a way to see a map containing just the groups pictures? I'm fairly new to Flickr, so sorry if this has already been covered. Would be nice to choose an area from the map to browse the pool pics from that area.

ps. I don't have a canon, is that ok? :)
IrenicRhonda Posted 9 years ago. Edited by IrenicRhonda (member) 9 years ago
Welcome mcrusty!

The group's map is here

Normally you would access it from the front page. Under the group's name are some links in blue

PS mine is an Olympus P+S not Canon
McRusty PRO 9 years ago
Thanks . Didn't notice it up there. Having looked at it though, as a group, we have a lot of work to do to fill it up! Looking forward to helping. Maybe you should put a bounty on pictures from the hard to reach areas :)

Thanks again.

Hello... my username is the clue.

I have a camera. I reckon the eye behind it is more important than the name on the front .

I take pictures. Some turn out OK, some don't. Hope some are worthy of inclusion in the group....

Hi - I just joined. I am John - back in Orkney again after many years away.

The vast majority of my photos are of Orkney - year round - but possibly most of them are taken during the Winter Months despite
the short hours of daylight then. John
