Shortly I’m going to buy a Cannon, I’ve been an Olympus man all my life but they have lost the plot. The E5 is a great piece of kit, waterproof, drop proof, most likely bomb proof and all for under £1500.00p. It’s going to cost me the thick end of four times that to get the equivalent build quality in a Cannon or Nikon. So be it, the decision is made. Can anyone who uses long lenses on a Cannon advise me on which prime, fast, long lens to buy………….please? I can work out macros, and wide angles but would appreciate some advice. I am thinking rear slot in filters…..anyone used them…..am I likely to get muck in the system? If crap can get in I can promise I’m the man to get it there. I do clean my gear…..I use a hosepipe. Not indiscriminately…I put my thumb over the pipe end….So as to get a sprinkle effect. I do have some respect for the gear.
As is usual I have digressed. Back to the flower of Scotland, it has been a good day today, it’s only rained twice, I walked four miles of the river Devon and was covered in flies and have been bitten by three clegs, evil little devils they are. It was all worth it. I found Rumbling Bridge.
Rumbling Bridge or bridges. The uppermost carries the road and was completed in 1867 the lower one is older and there because the builders of the former couldn’t be bothered to shift it. The bottom of the gorge is a good hundred feet or thirty meters below the old bridge. I was in company so couldn’t mess about for too long.I stitched up this shot………………….
It quite made my day….Made my day? It made my year. Supercalorfragalis……NO!… I’m not that daft…OR maybe I am.
Tomorrow I’m away to take pictures of Elk, Wolves and Wildebeest. I’ll no doubt see ringlet butterflies by the score. Never seen but one a year and this year they are everywhere. Painted Ladies were common as muck a couple of years ago, not seen one since. That’s the way of the world. Have a great week. Have fun!
Have a grand week.
