IM BACK KIDS, and as you can see i went all the way to scotland to take night shots lol,mmm but youll be glad to know i took some shots of a day aswell ,,,well youve got to havent you lol,ive had loads of fun in the week running up to when we went,my broadband went tits up so icouldnt comment or upload a pic before we went and to top it of the 20d i got had big dust spots on the senser which i payed 90 pounds to get it cleaned and to my horror the first shots i took i checked them out on the laptop and there were more spots on my images so i wasnt a happy bunny to say the least so i ended up taking most of my shots with the little fuji ,but we had a fantastic time and the drive up to applecross was stunning and we were lucky we only had rain on the friday and yesterday on the way home and i will be cacthing up with everyone during the week.
thanks for taking the time to look at my castle lol ..

Sorry to hear about the sensor spots - ouch! Anyway, this is such a cool image - just right for Halloween. Nice to see you back. PS...I bought a micron filter for my air compressor, turn it way down low with a regulator and use the ultra-clean air to gently blow out the dust on my girlfriends slr. Seems to work well.
