Just ordered my new 7D! Yum! While I wait, here is one from Shropshire last week.
Grabbed some postcards when we first arrived to see what was about and noticed this interesting location. Logged on to EPZ and saw a few images from here but not many. We visited The Stipingstones for a sunset but my youngest is autistic and doesnt wait around very well so I worked out the time to get here thanks to the sat nav and someone on EPZ had said this was 15 mins walk from the car park.
I duly set off, family and dog in tow and realised that the satnav was lost! We arrived a little short of time and I grabbed the gear and charged off down a path I presumed would take me to the top. It soon became clear though that I was only going sideways, so I decided to climb up a steep hill, climbed over a barbed wire fence as the sun was disappearing. I arrived, set my gear up with sweat pouring off me and started shooting. This was the first image I shot so you can see how close I was to sunset! I shot some more with the sun behind the mountain which I have yet to process. Still at least it keeps you fit!

It was when I took it up Gary, cameras were bloody heavy and landscapes were taken on RB67's. Wouldnt have climbed a fence with that in your bag!!

Thanks for comments folks.

A great story and a good result. I rarely take my camera with Tom, as we are often in different post codes....most of my efforts are aimed at keeping him in sight. Posted a shot or two of him on the 10th of Jan to show what I'm up against Wink

The area is called the Stiperstones not stipingstones, I dont live to far away. But not bothered with this area yet, it does has potential for some crackers.

Fully deserves the RC mate, just for the tale of woe getting it! It's a quality capture to boot, despite sweating face! But, I'm not talking to you any more coz I'm dead jealous of you getting a 7D!!
