Have a Tranquil 2010

By MrsS    

A HUGE thanks to you all for your support and encouragement over the last 12 months!

Starting the New Year out on yet another steep learning curve with a full frame camera - off to try my hand at Birds of Prey on Saturday and then hopefully lots of snow on Sunday.

I would also like to take the chance to say Thanks to all of you who have most generously "donated" equipment & time - I couldn't have done it without you!!

Oh and one final thanks to the Boss - who doesn't always tell me I'm good - quite the opposite in fact! Wink
Thanks MrS for putting up with me - I'll try not to ruin decent shots with rubbish processing next year, just for you! Grin

Thanks again, and HNY to you all

Fran, now you will know from previous observations that I have problems with "milky water". Now you test me. I really like this image for its composition, colour and ethereal nature...

Lets hope that you produce more like this one with one if the best digital cameras made, the 5D is superb especially for long tones and soft colours, great detail. Just what you want. This imageby the way is not good, it's very good.

A Happy New Year to you Fran,

Thanks Mike, Alan, Brian, Dougie & Phil Smile

Apols Mike, it came with the territory on this one - needed the long exposure due to the light levels Smile

Pete - THANK YOU! Totally unexpected - what a great way to start the year! Grin

Cheer All - feeling a tad jaded and up at 6am so I think it might be an early night - after Gavin & Stacey of course! Wink

So wonderful.

Just got really lucky in this case - things combined to make this - the low light sorted the shutter speed and the rest just followed! I did compose it all on my own though! Wink
