Freaky clouds

The moon was hiding behind some very freaky clouds tonight. Very difficult to get this shot; ended up with ISO 6400 at 1/8th second, f/5.6 because that's the widest my longest zoom will go :/

Maybe I should buy that 70-200 f/2.8L with all this spare cash I have lying about ... ;)

Mam Tor by night, a set on Flickr.
A late night jaunt to the top of the Shivering Mountain. Long exposure times and a very steady tripod required.

A Week of Wandering

At some point soon I'll get back into the swing of this thing. Well, that's the plan anyway. It's not worked especially well so far, but I'm trying.

In the garden

Yes, it's a flower. But I was in the garden, so there were a few of them. I thought this one was nice for more than just being a pretty flower, though. The light coming through a gap in the foliage to give a greater contrast makes it work quite nicely.

Here are some more from the day.

Various and random

Just about caught up ... Been out and about with an old M42 mount 28mm manual lens. I do have a filter set for it, too, but I haven't used it in anger yet. That's later.
