I have a couple of hours to kill near Mcr Airport this evening....where to go?

My wife is at a school reunion this evening not far from Manchester Airport, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to get my camera out if I can.

Not sure where I can go though.

I would go to the Airport itself, but what with the recent climate, I'll most likely be a bent-double receptacle of a gloved hand before I can check my ISO settings.

Any ideas?
Also, if anyone in the area fancies tagging along

Have you been to the spectators area? Of the airport.

lol Chorlton Street. ooer missus.
I remember my time as a bus driver, having to use the old bus station there. Was an eye opener I can tell you. As they say..."It takes all sorts"

I forgot to check this thread after I posted. I didn't end up getting my camera out of the bag anyway. I took my wife and her sister to the reunion nr Hale. Got my flask, A-Z, and camera stuff out of the boot, and had a little drive round, looking for inspiration.

Would have had a dabble with the viewing area, had it not been A: Pitch Black and B: closed...(Well I assume it was anyway).
I didn't even want to attempt parking up and going through the airport, as I have done in the past. No doubt I wouldn't have got far with my camera out before being approached by security, so didn't want the hassle and pollava.

Anyway, had a little drive round with me and my thoughts. Parked up on a country lane with a nice view of some fields with some mist coming in. Pitch black, with me, my coffee and my thoughts. Nice and eerily silent.

Drove off again for a bit, and picked my wife and her sister up. Was only out for about 90 minutes, and like I say, the camera didn't even come out of my bag.
It was more of an opportunist thing really, I took my camera along just incase.
That's the problem with me I tend to lack inspiration, and if I don't have anything inparticular in mind to shoot, I get stumped.

Good job I missed the thread Jonny, you'd have been bored stiff....lol
