If it's Scotch then it isn't Whiskey, it's Whisky.   We put Whiskey in our cooking sauces.  We drink Whisky.

Indeed. I do find a 16 year-old Bushmills is extremely tasty, but that is whiskey. But there is so much to discover in Scotland, the Distiller Editions of some places are excellent too. Lagavulin is one that jumps to mind. And that is whisky. ;-)
Paul enlightened me on the subtlety of the spellings some time back so I use the correct one now. You don't want a Scott breathing down your neck  ;)

As for me I prefer the Island Whiskys - love the smoky taste...

1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ f/5.6 & 1/640th ISO 200

Have tried for a while to get a decent shot of these Guys galloping side on, but they invariably Gallop directly away so all you get is a Galloping Zebra Backside. Not sure Colour does it for them, maybe they're a B&W animal, I mean, B&W Image, you know what I mean.
I vote for B&W. But then I am a B&W fan :). If the grass was green I'd say colour. With the grass being dry, either B&W or Sepia...

Any particular reason you did not set the f-stop to f8 or f11? Or did you reckon that even at that the foal would not come into focus?

More an IL-76 minus the tail assembly as the wing attaches to the top of the fuselage...


Good One RPT, Good Shot & Good Likeness to the Vultures sliding in to a Kill.
That is not a picture I took. I whacked it from the net. But yes, the picture is lovely.

but i'm an atheist....

what should i do?

Keep up the good and level headed work.
I am an atheist myself. Spiritual though. I practise scotch and vodka - separately - unless it is a long island ;)

Convert to being agnostic like me.  I don't believe in fairy tales but I do believe in mans inhumanity and stupity.
Also agnostics wind up zealots more than atheists.  They can't handle the enigmatic aura.
My theory is if God exists she is a software engineer. How else do you explain all the glitches ;)

Interesting proposition, do you think Earth as we know it is a beta or sandbox version and the post apocalypse version with fw2.0.1 will be a bit better?  Is the M in Eos M for Metaphor?
M is for Myself!

So last month I was at Huntington beach with my camera and the 24-105L. I took a number of shots but this one in particular grabbed me. Look at the expressions. I started off with the person in the Nigerian outfit - but that is just the start! Look at the drummer who is on the bottom right. And the Kids on the bottom left - they are having a conversation while the older one is still drumming. then there are the drummers behind and the lady with the tambourine who almost walked into the picture. And there is the mother with her child - and may be her sister. Look at the child - such a good child. No tantrum.

People, all your pictures are fabulous. I am waiting for the monsoon to abate in a month or so when I will be able to shoot some new pictures. These days it just comes down and I don't like getting wet...

I posted one of these Birds earlier, cant remember where.

Lappet Faced Vulture, Trying to shoot these Birds gave me a new respect for Gary Samples and his Eagle Images, although these Guys come in slow & steady like a 747, they still present problems that give a healthy respect for People that consistently shoot amazing BIF Images.

Shot in Tanzania June 2013, 1Dx 200-400f/4 @ 280mm, probably the one place I felt I could have used the 600f/4 on this trip.

Another Bird that's heading to Extinction due to Poisoning, Habitat removal and general dislike.

These Guys when they turn up just own the Kill, they are the Largest and definitely the most aggressive, but strangely they are the first to Fly away when you approach them. Someone said they are a "Fugly Bird", but they are Majestic in Flight.


Beautiful. Yes the are great flyers, your comparison with a 747 is so true. Good timing on your shot. Nicely done.

19.  'IQ'
Whose? ;)

 ;D

With your iq you'll know !

And yes it was the Radisson. Well spotted !
Thanks for confirming. Imagine my joy when I discovered it and my dismay when I realised I'd never be able to shoot that kind of scene once I got down at departures :(

15. Putting your text in the middle somebody else's quote making others wonder what is being said! In other words not using the preview button before posting! >:(
