INDEX

North America

Philedelphia, PA

Toledo, Ohio

Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks, WY

Southwest US suggestions for Macro Gals & Fly Guys



South America

Argentina



Europe

Italy

Norway/Sweden

Cruising the Baltic


Africa

Tunisia





Just before I went to sleep last night I was thinking of the trip me and my family is going to take in september. A new "place" in the swedish travel catalogues so I don't know much about the place. Then I thought it would be a great idea if we could have our own travel subforum where members can add their mini guides of places with more focus on photography. What to shoot, where, special conditions and so on. Also a part where members can ask questions about specific towns, places and countries.



What do you think?

That's a great idea!

I don't know if it's possible but I was thinking to have a travel subforum with sections for the different continents then in each section countries and cities. Then a different part for general questions like in all subforums here.

If you moderators think your burden is to high already I can help out if you want

Good ideas are always welcome!

We were thinking that these guides could go in the meetings subforum to begin with - we could have suitable region threads (which may or may not be related to the regions for the meeting threads) - we could keep an index on them to make them easier to use.

If there are particular regions you would like us to start off, post them here and we will open them up... Once we have a few I'll move over this thread and it can be the general questions thread :-)

Great, thanks Bob!

Pentafox already have requested info on Sweden/Norway and I want to know if anyone have experiences of the island Djerba, Tunisia, any special places, buildings, trips to take or whatever to see (shoot).

I've suggested something like this in the past and I think it's a great idea as you've posed it. There are many members here who have very specific knowledge of their regions from a photographer's point of view -- something you never get in guides.

I know I'd be willing to contribute to a section on Philadelphia, PA in the states, including landmarks/events/shooting opportunities, etc. Kind of a Wiki atlas for for Dyxum members.

I think this is a great idea, and will be doing a photo trip to Monument Valley Arizona in August and would love to add that as a photo destination in the south west U.S. Sounds like another way fellow dyxumers can help one-another planing a trip.

Me too! Although it's easier said than done to write the stuff up, I'm all for trying.

It's good to see this has finally picked up, I suggested it too a while back :)
I'll see what I could contribute with, although right now I feel the same way Paul does :)
