And today I'm annoyed that I have lost my 10 stop filter. Can't find it anywhere!  >:(

Hope you find it. How does stuff go missing? In the last 2 months I`ve lost my slr gorillapod, a flashgun for my LX100 which granted I never use and a small screw in piece for my Fuji camera case that renders it useless which dropped at my feet in my "office" but refuses to be found. Annoying!

Lenses / Canon EF L IS USM 500 f/4 for sale
« Last post by Hinfrance on August 03, 2020, 12:36:05 PM »
My lovely neighbour is now in his 70s and has given up sitting in hides for hours on end to get that one good wildlife shot.

As a result he has decided to sell his immaculate 500mm f/4 telephoto lens. It is in mint condition and comes not only with it's own carry case, but also with a heavy duty tripod to support it. Shipping would be extra depending on where it is sent.

Price €4000, currently around £3600. It cost him twice that so I don't think he would want to haggle, especially not with the tripod being part of the package.

So, it's a lot of money, but it is a bargain for what it is.

Please message me if you are interested, or if you know of anyone else who might be.

(Not today but yesterday evening).

I went to a local reservoir/nature reserve to try and get my horizon photo for the weekly competition. Its a beautiful spot and has a small country park. Yesterday evening a large number of cars had driven onto the grass park area that cars are not allowed on to. Music was blasting out, large numbers of people drinking and what appeared to be quite a lot of litter thrown around (the cynic in me didn't think that they would clear up after themselves!)
It was just me that was less than impressed. I saw a few others with disapproving looks on their faces.
And when I pulled into the car park, one of the cars shot out in front of me, luckily I managed to stop. I suspect that they were drink driving.

It annoys me that people go to such a beautiful spot and behave in such a way.  >:(

I quite agree. If you asked them why they come there they would reply, " it's a nice place to visit", to which I would reply, "Well it won't be if selfish prats like you visit!" It really annoys me when people don't look after the environment.  >:( :uglystupid2:

Well done H - hope you`ve finished it now

I have indeed finished it. And the hole I made in my left hand index finger when a scalpel slipped is also nearly healed.

Thanks for the win all, I'll get a new topic up as soon as I think of one.:tup:
