Managed to get a replacement remote release for my camera and then went looking for something to try it out on.

Whizzing along a main road something caught my eye, so turned round and went back.


Must be about 19 years since I last captured this event taking place so quite pleased I stopped for a few photographs.

Bit more sorting out.
This is me & the panda at the most northerly point of mainland Europe (supposedly).
The place was mobbed. Apart from our party there were 3000 Italians from a Costa Cruise and a carpark full of campervans.

When Tricia started this thread on Friday I had no plans for the weekend. Thanks to KevSB for mentioning the Lace Wars at Kedleston Hall nr Derby. It was an obvious event to attend to try out the Olympus OM-Ds 9 frames per second. As we arrived and saw just a relative small number of tents and only a few reeanactors I wondered if it was a good choice. But minutes after arriving I bumped into epz member Phil (NewmanP) and half way through the first small skirmish Kev spotted me amongst the spectators and came and said hello. A shortwhile later he'd lined up a private shoot with some of the reenactors for Phil, K and I and the day really took off. We had four sessions with a fair few of the reenactors. The session by the river was awesome.
I'd like to thank Kev for his knowledge of the event and connections with the teams, but also for his very helpful approach to the day. He went out of his way to ensure we, and other photographers who tagged along on each shoot, got what we wanted. True gent.
I have a lot of photos to wade through later, but in the meantime here's me in action photographing a group that was set up at the end of the day.

Quote: I will be interested in your findings Pete, in particular I'd be interested to see what the defraction is like at say F16

Nick I did a few shots at f/16 for you. They're here Nikon D800 vs Nikon D700 and f/16

Thanks Pete, that's interesting, I does look like there is a difference (will check properly tomorrow on a proper screen). It won't put me off the D800, I will just modify my technique ( that said I'm not doing many landscapes these days).
