We saw thie beige coloured swan last weekend and it was there again today. I wasn't quick enough to get a decent shot.

I'm wondering if it is a leucistic black swan. Apparently it's a genetic thing where they lack usual colour in their plumage.

Introducing "blob" - the small wad of blutack I'm using to document the screws being removed from the M6, whilst I hopefully convert it to IR.

Still a work in progress Pete...
Think I've blundered a little as I should have disabled the sensor auto-clean function before taking it apart, so tomorrow I'll put the main board back in, fire it up & disable cleaning, before continuing. Must remember to discharge that flash capacitor after the brief powerup!

Just back from relocating a motorhome from Auckland to Christchurch. All my hopes and plans went out the window due to something we have no control over .......the weather.
It rained through north island and low cloud in the south that then turned to rain. Photography was not that great in part due to the rushed nature of the trip.

Having said that it was the first time I've been through Lewis Pass so now I've been from picton to chch both ways.

I took more photos with my cellphone than I did with DSLR ...... the dslr shots weren't that great.

My friend's dog Daisy hoping for a stone to be thrown for her to chase.

It's called getin' 'moody' shots. Shame you did not have more time.
