    My thanks...

    Echo all the sentiments from above, many thanks to all the organisers once again. I agree I think it was one of the best, bit of clear sky, great company, great food, etc. Looking forward to next year already Cheers Will

    SGL2017 Picture thread

    Agree with Steve here too - my artistic ability will just have to remain a mystery!

    SGL2017 Picture thread

    Great video @PhotoGav. I'm pleased my expert red-light writing skills didn't go unused, but saddened my rude writing/picture forming didn't make it in! haha

    SGL 2017 SP - Pitch Plan

    This was the first thing that worried me too! Perhaps I should park it a couple of miles away and cycle in lol

    Initial (unprocessed!) Eclipse From Grand Teton

    Thanks Pete, I was sort of forced into it as I only had a 14mm and 24mm lens! Good for widefield but not so good for closeups!
  9. I only have about 20 minutes of internet so only time to post a few of the Eclipse from a hot and sunny Grand Teton park, on the centre line of the eclipse. I had the Coronado Ha but not long lenses for the Canon 6D so few close ups of totality. I did however manage to get a video of Bailey's Beads appearing after totality in Ha, but the gain and gamma had to be pushed right up so forgive the noise in the video. Last picture is a wide shot showing the Grand Teton range in the background, hopefully showing how dark it actually got! I'll try and process once I'm back and have internet once again! Cheers Will Baily's Beads Fast.avi

    Galloway 2017 Spring Gathering

    Haha, yes thanks guys. I should point out that we've been trying to get married for about three years, but being people that run our own company (as anyone self-employed will probably know), work always seems to get in the way! Definitely something I'm involved in, I can confirm this isn't a desperate plea for help via an internet forum lol Reading your post again Ian, I'm conscious that the phrase 'for whatever reason it had slipped your mind...' doesn't paint me in a good light haha

    I have just been informed by Becky that there is a possibility I will be getting married the weekend before. Apparently bad form to forget that haha so the November trip might be some form of honeymoon....which has just cursed the weather for everyone lol Will
