The Curse of The New Lens!

24th August 2010
Well, my Canon 100-400L Lens has arrived back from Canon and I’m desperate to see if the recalibration they have done has improved the sharpness. However, it seems that the curse of the new lens has struck. I either have bad weather, or good weather and the little furry or feathered subjects refuse to play ball.

Its holiday week for the family this week and we would normally be away, however, we are about to have an extension built and decided not to go away this week. As well as getting out with the camera with the family, (out for a mountain bike ride today, and tried to image common lizards but bad weather and incredibly strong winds put paid to that!) I’m also sneaking out at every opportunity.

Last night was a couple of hours waiting for no-show barn owls. I’m hoping to be up at Langford for dawn tomorrow as I have information that a Little Owl is roosting among some old bales. Fingers Crossed!

As a family we attended a firework competition at Belvoir Castle on Saturday night. There are a couple of images in the recent image section. The fireworks where superb, however, I have to say my favourite images where of the castle under stormy clouds before the show. Take a look at the image in recent images that I converted to monochrome. As I say we could be in the Carpathians!
