    UK 6 Hour Lawnmower Race

    Well I was not expecting that, but glad that you all liked our little sport. On the long straights they will get up to about 40mph, which on small wheels and no suspension in a field is fast enough.

    UK 6 Hour Lawnmower Race

    Yes this is a family friendly sport, we have kids wondering around in the pits area, so everyone travels at walking speed after entering and until leaving the pit lane. Then the racing begins, plus all teams will help keep other teams going if needed, after all we are all here for a good day of...

    Another Day at the Mach Loop

    It is a great location, but we also get blank days where we spend all day on the mountainside and can hear the aircraft's flying but not see a single aircraft, but the busy days make up for that.

    Another Day at the Mach Loop

    Last Wednesday I popped up to the Mach Loop for another day of flying action. I returned to the Bwlch viewing spot, starting at one of the upper levels, then towards the end of the day we heard that a Osprey would be coming through, so we quickily descended down to the lower shelf. 1 - My...

    Hawks and Sheep

    On Thursday I spent another day up at The Mach Loop, and with it being such a nice sunny day, we were expecting to see more action from the USAF. But it was not to be, but it was good to have the local's in their Hawks plus a private plane through. 1 2 3 4 5 6

    Possible Upgrade from D700 to D850 or D5

    I have two D700 bodys, and I love them. I can crop images and still print A3 size prints. That will do for me.

    Thinking of getting a good TC...

    I have found cropping in in post processing gives better results than using a TC (I have the Nikon 1.4 II version).

    Is This Acceptable Sharpness ? - 300/2.8 VR + TC-14E III

    Interesting read so far, as I have the Nikon 300 f2.8 VR1 lens which is very sharp, but when connected to a Nikon 1.4TC ver2 the images are soft (I get better results without the TC and just cropping in). Although I have not done any fine tuning yet so maybe this will fix my problem.

    First images with Nikon 200-500

    I only brought the Nikon 200-500 VR lens last Friday, but due to bad weather and work I only managed to get out yesterday and today to try it out for aviation photography. The first images was taken yesterday of a RAF Hawk flying at low level, managed to get reasonable detail. The second image...

    Stereo system upgrade advice, please

    I do enjoy my music and only earlier this year had to replace my 35 year old Pioneer amp (volume adjustment had gone very lumpy).
