Good day to you all.

Firstly thank you all for the great comment and votes following yesterday FFFF upload. Todays upload was captured yesterday whilst out with Kizmet and my Support Worker along a lovely set of rugged coastline at All Hallows which is at the mouth of the Thames Estuary.

Well I hope that you all have a great day, for me I am off out with my Support Worker again in order to allow Jules to do her own stuff.

Regards as always Nathan

A lovely wee bird, Nathan.
Unusually for you, these seem a tad soft and un-focused. I have read that the Siggy 150-500 is soft when used at 500, and is far better when pulled back to 450-480. You get a far sharper image and can apply a degree of crop. Just a thought...
