New member from North Devon in the UK

Hi everyone,

I've been a member of the PentaxUser.com community for a while but thought i'd join this community as well. I particularly like the format of your Camera and lenses review sections.
I've been shooting with Pentax gear for a few years now, and am a member of a local camera club here in North Devon. I think i'm the only person in the club that shoots on Pentax cameras, everybody else is a Nikon, Canon, or Fuji fan, nevermind, they don't know what they are missing!

Hi Peter & welcome to the forums from another UK member (there are plenty of us here! ).

It's been a while since I was down your way, though I used to visit regularly on my way over to Lundy (with my K-3!) for some "get-away-from-it-all" breaks... Haven't been for a few years since I moved up North, and I really miss it.

Good to have you with us!

Hi from Australia Peter, and welcome to the Pentax forums. You are correct that " they don't know what they are missing." Good to have you aboard.

Welcome!

I travelled through your beautiful county in the summer of last year, and my ancestors were pretty much all West Country folk. My great-great-grandfather came from Horrabridge, just your side of the Tamar on the edge of Dartmoor.

Welcome to the forum. It's always good news to hear about another Pentax shooter here in Devon.

I live a couple of miles up the road from Horrabridge, just outside Tavistock. Your great-great-grandfather definitely qualified as proper Dartmoor folk.

I'm hoping that the more of the membership needs to add themselves to this map...

Otherwise the seven shown in Scotlands 30,414 square miles (78,770 km2), have little chance of ever seeing another in the wild as that's nearly 4345 square miles (11253 km2) each.

Isn't that the point of living up there in the 'wild' ? Agreed we (Pentax folk) shouldn't be so shy and we should get on and place ourselves on the map. We (UKers) might be suprised by how many there really are ...
