These things come in three's!

09th May 2011
I'm certainly hoping not! Over the last week I have discovered that the image stabalisation on my Sigma 18-200 lens has malfunctioned, and after buying some accessories for my flash to hopefully, enhance my macro images, have now got a broken flash gun. The cost to repair the flash in particular is quite laughable, only £175 before parts! Seeing as the newer version of the flash is now on sale new for £199 I may have to take it apart myself.

On to the photography. Although now is a good time to get back into some macro imagery my equipment failure has hampered me a little. I did manage to get a reasonable image of a common blue darter although the swaying reed was a challenge. The next few months will be taken up with supply images to the Oxford Picture Library, in the main, but I am always on the lookout for that special opportunity that may be just around the corner.

As some of you may know, as well as a wildlife photographer I am also a keen cyclist and over the years i have time trialed, road raced, mountain biked and branched out into duathlon and triathlon. With this in mind I would like to take this opportunity to send my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Wouter Weylandt who sadly died in the Giro D'italia today after a heavy crash on a fast decent. It reminds us all how fragile life is, my he rest in peace.

Scott
