That Sigma and D70 really work well together, or is it the man behind the equipment that matters lol.

Cracking image with superb sharpness, really impressed by this focusing what sort of focal length was this taken at Miles?

Thanks for all the comments! (And the EC Pete, it was a nice surprise to come home to!)

Aidan, I love the D70, it's great for this sort of thing. I still prefer Velvia film for landscapes and low light shooting, but the D70 handles everything else superbly.

Chris, this was taken at 320mm, 1/60 at F8 RAW, mounted on a tripod, and with a remote release. It was also taken through a pane of glass...always carry a small damp soapy cloth in a sandwhich bag, and a dry cloth, to clean all the finger marks off the glass!
