What a great day yesterday, with some excellent company, met many familiar and new faces. Just a few from yesterday, Alison (Alleycatz), Alan, (Wooly), Janet (chase), Chris Plumb, Maddie and last but not least KeithH (thanks for all the help Keith).

Now anyone who thinks this is easy should try metering off white pups and or black bulls in constantly changing light, with a gale blowing Snow showers off the north Sea in sub zero temperatures.

My camera packed in by the end of the day, all the buttons stuck, in these conditions a weather sealed camera is a must! (Thankfully a night in the airing cupboard did the trick.

Please have a peeks at the large version if you have time

This is the first from the day as I have already taken an order for a large print (well freebie) for my daughters bedroom !

Camera:Nikon D80 Check out Nikon Nation!

Certainly doesn't, but the light at times was very nice, at others you could hardly see a fewe feet in front of you.

What has given me the greatest pleasure about this is that my daughter liked the images so much she has started to show an interest in photography again - tho how long it will last I don't know LOL
