    Greetings!
    I hope all are well, some wonderful images here!

    I can't remember the last time I posted on this mighty thread that I started all those years ago.
    But here's one from Assynt in February this year. Looking forward to getting back up there again soon!

    If you like that you can see more here https://www.karlholtby.com

    Best wishes

    WOW!!

    Just went through the last 15 pages, Some beautiful pics!!:inlove:

    I took a couple of pics of....................My camera!! :whistling::laugh:

    [​IMG]

    The 500mm lens was a fiver from the bootsale and has a 42mm screw fitting so I bought a 42mm to Nikon bayonet adapter ring but I have to use manual everything with it (I'm rubbish with a camera and usually take fifty shots to get one halfway acceptable pic!)

    Somewhere I have 2x and 3x multiplier lenses but I can't recall where they are, Here's a couple of pics with the longer lens fitted (I find it difficult to tell if i'm focussed with manual focusers!)

    And through the stabdard auto 18-55 DX af lens

    I was changing the front shockers on my car whilst still having the clips in my left knee from getting a new knee fitted!, I never damaged the clips or my knee! :thumbsup:

    By the way, There is an axle stand under there to ensure it couldn't drop on me!!

    Can't recall the name of your son? Good job you have a picture, some is bound to recognise him and tell you!

    Depending on your exact location, there has been 12-18" heavy wet snow on top of this.
    This is a mile or so from my house.

    That's England's national bird. What's he doing in Belgium? Is he part of the package we'll lose after Brexit?

    Eyes on the skies.

    I'm visiting family in southern France and with a sky which has a lot less light pollution than where I live I had my eyes on the skies constantly.
    At one point in the evening, I saw one.. two... three... SIXTY satellites passing by, all in the exact same orbit.

    Insert 'satellites in the same orbit' in Google and I quickly found out it is Elon Musks' toys flying past at around 350 km's height. The project is called 'Starlink'.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starlink_(satellite_constellation)

    The photos were taken with a shutter speed of around 20 seconds, so each line in the photo represents the distance each satellite covered in those 20 seconds.

    We were adopted by a cat a few months back and he's been helping keep Julie sane whilst driving me crazy.
