Wanaka tree

I need help. I know, I know, you all knew that!

Dear readership and friends list

As you may know, I set up a photographic community here on LiveJournal a few months ago called nz_photo. The basic idea was for people to post photos taken in New Zealand, hence the name. I'm delighted to say that nz_photo has been really successful. There are almost fifty people who are either members or watchers of the community and several people post there regularly. Several members are also on my friends list and I really want to thank you all for your support and your contributions to the community. I'm very grateful and delighted by what I see there.

I have long had an idea for another photo community. It's similar to nz_photo, except that I want it to be a place where people can post their photos taken in the south-west of the UK. I'm grateful to live in such a beautiful area and I enjoy sharing and seeing images of its diversity of landscape and natural wonders as well as some of the grimmer things and places we have here.

The problem I have is this; I don't know what to call it. I want the name of the community to reflect the following things:
That it's a photography community,
That it's about the south-west of the UK.

Now, I know that something like 'swuk_photo' is a bit obvious and I'd really like something a bit more imaginative. And this is why, dear readers, I am turning to you. Do you have any suggestions? I can't guarantee that I'll go with what you suggest, but it might spark an idea that could lead to the right name, so I'd be delighted to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for your help.
With love and hugs
Paul

Happy Easter - have a bunny

Just in case I don't get the chance to post before the week-end, and I realise it's a wee bit early but, well, you know, here's a Happy Easter greeting for you all. I don't have a religious bone in my body, but I respect those who do and have no problem as long as I'm not expected to join in. So, in a spirit of a shared season and a holiday that many of us will be taking over the next few days, here's my contribution. 

Happy Easter.
