First thanks to all the messages recently and the support.
I've not been out with the camera for over 2 months for various reasons.
Well I've got the buzz back - but will still only be popping in on EPZ occasionally as priorities change (and i want to keep my photography fresh).
Right now to yesterday
This was the first time out in 2 months - together with a new camera, which I'm still getting used to (this was just the 12th time I'd pressed the shutter), and my cheap eBay cable releases failed (also didn't work on the D300).
A big thanks to Mike for yesterday a highly enjoyable day and thanks for the loan of the lens (not the one used here) and the, aahmmm filter (more of that on another date).
To say I'm impressed with the camera is an understatement.
