I think I will Penel as last night someone I shot in February posted on facebook " naming and shaming " me because I'd not put any of the photos from the shoot online anywhere. I didn't get to see the post as from what I've been told by " one of my young ladies " she and four others jumped in with comments defending me and generally saying how good I was and how much they liked working with me and the offending post was deleted. So it does look like I have a loyal following and a reputation people are willing to defend for me.

Definitely a good thing in my book Dom.

Okay that's it - I am never walking off the path / road / tarmac again. . . . had enough of adders when I was growing up in Cornwall. I take it these were with a 2000mm lens plus extenders

I know some of you have already seen this on FB

http://epetitions.dire​ct.gov.uk/petitions/49​422 (external link) I know the horse has already bolted and all that .......

Evening all

Some stunners in the past few days...............too many to backtrack over but Penels monochrome silhouette of the leaping Hares is a book cover in waiting :D

As for the epetition.............​..signed it ~ and it ends on 30th January 2014 so get signing :) Perhaps more importantly write to our respective MP's ???


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Thanks Linda.

Can I have monopod recommendations please? Clare kindly lent me one but I find it difficult to adjust when it's attached to the lens or camera when I'm out and about, and also it's not tall enough for me. What's your favourite monopod please?

Saw your hares shared by the Springwatch guys on Facebook, good job...

I use a Manfrotto 679B which works well for me. Not the lightest by a long way but a reasonable price and I can interchange the head with my tripod too.

I would recommend a manfrotto style one with lever locks rather than twist locks - makes it much easier to change the height quickly and with one hand.

I bought a Gitzo one with the fancy gravity twist locks but its was just too much of a fiddle so returned it. With the lever locks you can keep shooting and change the height with the other hand and /know/ when its locked down.

I have the Manfrotto 134, had it for years and as far as I can tell the 679 is the current iteration of the 134...............thou​gh the 134 is weighty item but very solid in use. I have used it both direct connected to the body or 100-400 lens mount and using the Manfrotto two way tilt head that is most usefull to get the 90degree tilt over when used with the body/lens combo where the lens has no tripod collar.

Rob, a very good point. My 134 has the 1/4 turn twist levers so very quick to extend/close & adjust height :)

Thanks all - very useful and will be researching all you've said today. I agree I think I need the levers rather than the twisty. Then I can do it without looking.

Boxing hares this morning :D

David it was a 300mm with either a 1.4x or a 2x on.


Doh Penel, I had both mine in the boot of my car yesterday, Gitzo and Manfrotto! Excuse for another Adder trip then ;)

The snakes were scarce (putting it politely!) yesterday Clare. We found plenty of shed skin, so we know they're out there looking beautiful - but we wondered if they were having a siesta and are out more in the morning and later afternoon evening? I might go out in a minute just to see (and annoy Ian :lol:)...
