  10. After setting up with James at the far end of the field with the SN10 and WO66 the dew strap on the SN10 wasn't playinhg ball... So after an hour or so of frustration I gave up and wandered around. I watched JonH with his Canon doing some widefield shots and became inspired.. So here's my first widefield shot from the SP.. Many thanks for your help Jon..
  11. Well .... A big thank you to all that turned up, after the weather Thursday and Friday night last night was absolutely spectacular! I'll post up my pics in a bit after a bath, van tidy, errrr tent wash!!!! And family cuddle. The bad weather on the Thursday and Friday did us all a huge favour as we all had to shelter in James tent and socialise and get to know one and other, a big thank you to James for the use of his tent...

If the weather is a bit iffy (Not that it will be) We can have the most pretentious wine tasting evening.... Bring a bottle and and slurp whilst making comments .. Ie.. "It’s as if they took my childhood summers in Provence and put them in a glass. Don’t you agree?" Or “What kind of barrels was this wine aged in?” Ha ha.....
