One of the thermal pools in Yellowstone National Park:

Cool shot, you were lucky with your timing, the park being shut now with the USA governance issues!

Did you get to see how bad the fire damage has been? I've heard its pretty massive :(

I have a couple of photographer friends from here who have left this week for a tour of the National parks of America.
I bet they are gutted!!
F..ing politicians should be shot! (I toned that down a bit to not be so country specific.. but you know what I mean).

We didn't see too much of the damage from the fire in Yellowstone, but the fire in Yosemite National Park and the Stanislaus National Forest that surrounds it was huge. We drove out of the park via the National Forest, and at one stage we drove for miles with all the trees on both sides of the road completely burnt. All the roads leading off the main road, and all the overlooks/lookout points, except one had been closed.

Whereas I'm hoping they sort this mess so the parks are open the weekend of 18/10... I'm hoping to go to the smoky mountains during the peak autumn colours period - and it's pretty much 1 or 2 weekends a year... so you cant really just go when they sort this out

Shot for a few years ago...(which has been mangled a bit by Flickr)

The full frame club gains another member. I listened to you guys, I researched, researched, read some more, in fact I think I took this months internet up researching. Oh yes, broadband at home, also new :) I admit I parrallel bought this and my heart sank when I got home and found the manuals were in Chinese, and further the camera language in Chinese even tho' the boxes are printed in English. Almost ready to shoot myself, then get on the internet and sure enough found some user manuals, in pdf so have downloaded and will get 'em printed. The camera language had me baffled until I found a video showing basic operation, it did a quick run of the menus which I wasable to slow fram by frame and found out I could change the Camera language from Chines to English. Much happer, not gunna shoot myself after all. :D

Getting a bit shakier now, not age so much but the affliction, so bought a monopod which I suspect I will get a lot of use from.

Along with everything else the HP Pavillion 23 in the background is also new... whoa...

Need some filters and thangs, will get in touch with our friend in ChCh for first choice, then I guess it is stop shopping, and start using, in a nice way of course ;)

The gears are, 24-105, 17-40, and, 100-400 gulp. Maybe a tad enthusiastic on the buying thing there but all my life I have wanted more reach! First thing I noticed when I put some things together, is well... weight. I sure know I have a camera in my hand, specially with the big boy on, good thing I bought the monopd eh?!

Catch yas later ;)

Panasonic Lumix G9 and lenses from 7mm wide to 300mm long.

Wow Chris this is fantastic!! bw! Look forward to seeing the results:)

Great catch up last night, hope no-one minded the interloper and Mark - It was great to put a face to a name and meet you and your lovely family last night :)

Also, while I know this is not photog related - I am looking to raise some funds for research into a particularly aggressive cancer in young children and teenagers (Rabdomyosarcoma) and have committed to raising the huge sum of $25k. I would REALLY appreciate some support and sharing of this link and perhaps a donation (every $ helps!)? I figure if everyone even just gives me a $ and shares the link around, it only needs to be seen by another 23,500 people! :cool:

http://www.givealittle​.co.nz/cause/MollysRes​earchFund (external link)

Please pass it on :)

Oh! And did I mention that I will shave off all my hair (and there is a lot!) once I reach my target? Yes there will be photo's - I might be able to persuade Dave to help :)

awesome! I can't imagine getting a camera menu set to Chinese, good work sorting it...
just a wee word of warning with the 100-400, don't point the camera down & let the barrel free-fall from 100 to 400 on it's own as there isn't really any soft bump stop on the end
