The promised thunder storms never materialised but it is raining.
It was too dull and damp for photographs this morning. I don’t like using the strobe light in the wet as they aren’t or don’t look very waterproof. The new Canon 600EX-RT is weather resistant I believe and so it should be the price it is.
I had a bit of a tumble this morning. I noticed some Chantrelles growing on a steep bank in the woods. The shots I got were all blurry and as I turned to descend I fell over the bloody dog. I missed landing on the dog and saved the camera but my shoulder is killing me. It could have been worse; there was no one watching. I love watching folk fall over, I find it impossible not to laugh.
There is just one barely usable image to show for todays efforts. A Flesh Fly. This is the Canon 100mm Macro lens with a 36mm Dorr extension tube. I had a set of them arrive yesterday and they seem to work very well. ISO was 800 and f11 seems to give reasonable DOF. The light on the fly is the adjustment brush tool in the Raw converter. Presentation is copywrite Mr Morgan. The cheques in the post as one used to be able to lie. A damn nuisance is electronic banking.
Have a good week.
