Went up to Sunhill and got some squirrel pix. They were very busy feeding and finding acorns. One of them could carry two in its mouth, greedy devil.

Took some rugby pix Sat 22nd afternoon using the SLT77V tried out the 2 times tele-extension and got pix right across the field. This one was used by North Somerset Times. Should be a Colts match this week-end, see what i can do there.

Went up to Nailsea Sat 22nd to get pix of the double header. Stopped at Backwell lake on the way back and took pix of the little gulls flying.

Top of the town

Took some pix from Dial Hill Road looking down on to the Middle of Clevedon. The 1.4 & 2 times tele-extender work well. No f stop increase like a 2 times add-on extender would cause, just a reduction in mega pixels. As the SLT 77V has 24+ MP's it merely reduces them to 12+ on the 2 times.
Isolating houses from as high as this point makes it hard to identify individual places. If I didn't know exactly what I had taken.

Had my replacement SLT 77V arrive in the week and went out to get some shots and familiarise myself with it. Driving along The Beach and spotted this Baby Austin, fantastic condition and I managed to find a place to park and took a set of pix. Posted them on Flickr and also Morguefile. There has been a few downloads on Morguefile already.
I wonder if cars made today will still be able to run in 75 years time like this one?

Went over to Keynsham to get pix of the 'Earl of Mount Edgecombe' steam train. Picked a good spot on the platform. Man about 10 feet away and standing back as I was. As the train came through the stupid basket stepped forward about 5 feet and complately blocked my chance of getting a pic. The loco was going so fast by the time I got forward as well it was gone by.
I was fuming but said nothing to the little swine. As a consolation I went back via Woollard and Publow. Got some shots with my Sony A350 that has been converted to take infrared pix.
