Spent a very pleasant morning yesterday in the company of Paul (sut68) and Fran (MrsS) up on Curbar Edge. Had a great time, and must do it again before too long! Well, it was pleasant after I finally got there, as my car broke down so was too late for the best colour of the morning! Also good to bump into Ed Rhodes, and put a face to a name at long last.

However, I made the best of what I could, and spotted this view across with the light catching the mist and throwing shadows across the trees. It's not a dust spot just to the left of centre, it's a bird!

Cheers folks.
Yes, a good baptism though Fran. Glad I could get there (even if I missed the best sky), the company more than made up for it.

I have that camera and lens combo and they are a pretty awesome couple. If I could only keep two lenses I would choose my 16-35F2.8L and the 100-400L. Beautiful light and layering and an image that offers plenty of scope for further crops too.

Thanks all, appreciated.

Must admit Alun, that even on a first use, I was impressed by the 100-400 (even though it's a bit of a beast to carry!), way ahead of my Sigma 70-300, but then again, it is about 9 times the price!!
