May 15 Champions League Final, GLA (PIK??)

Interesting one Yorkie.

The last time the Euro Cup Final was held in Glasgow (12th May 1976) I was at GLA all day spotting and shooting. A fantastic day that was! (was is St Etienne & Bayern Munich? 0-1....a poor football match I remember)
PIK had just as many movements as GLA that day. I don't think that will happen this time.
It's also a pity that taking photo's at GLA is dismal now.
It does help to have local knowledge. I sometimes struggle to find good locations when I shoot there occasionally.
If you want to know the best places to shoot at GLA, Fred Seggie (a.net photographer) is one of the regular locals and a very helpful guy. Search out his shots.

Cheers

Gerry/EDI

Hi Yorkie

There is a little error concerning the European GP at the Nürburgring: The next airport is not Nürnberg, it is Luxembourg, Hahn, Frankfurt or Cologne.

Hope, that helps
Regards
Roland

Ryder Cup will generate the traffic mainly at BHX. There were all sorts of interesting visitors on the cards for this year, but of course it was cancelled!
