    Next Door - and I'm watching you
    It makes a change me selling you a lens should have put the price up - Good images but I am not sure it's the lens you were always a bit good at the landscape stuff better than the Otters I feel.:er:
    Nice self portrait mate :lol:

    Good shots Earl! But I thought you already had that toy? You say it was a dull Tuesday, but the first 2 pictures look very bright as if the sun was out. If you want to take some nice landscape shots this autumn with all the golden brown leaves....take a walk along the river between Henley and Shiplake!

    What lens is it mr prophet?

    and yeah, the Oxonians normally slaughter anything with legs that they can't mate with.

    I wanted to stop near Pishill last year as there was some fantastic light on the hills, but there was nowhere to stop on the road without incurring a three mile hike back up the hill, so I carried on and had a pint in Henley instead - not as creative, but similarly refreshing!

    Cheers Ray, but like Otters I am also cute, therefore I have to photograph otters from time to time :lol:

    But I do like doing landscapes, now if someone could train an Otter to wingwalk at an airshow in say the West Highlands of Scotland I'd be a happy bunny

    Ahh no this is another new lens:D a Canon 24-70 F2.8L usm

    Trust me the weather was dull, there were small patches of sun but not a lot, but BUT we did see a stag come bounding out of the bushes but as we were trying to keep Hoppy's dog under control all we could do was watch in awe.

    And AND we got within 4feet of a Twany Owl that was asleep on a low branch but as I was changing the ISO on the camera it heard us and flew off

    well my mate just parked next to the side of the road on a verge ( he is from hampshire ) and we just walked up the footpath.

    I too have found many a drinking hole in Henley :drool:

    I love the first shot.
    although it seems to show the clouds a little less ominous than I remember

    I'd like to think we didn't get a shot of the Tawny Owl because we didn't want to disturb it from its slumber with the noise of the shutter going off. Not that we were both "COMPLETELY INCOMPETANT", with me stuck with the 400mm lens and you with the wrong ISO setting!!!!!!! :er: :er:

    With the Stag, I thought it best to try and stop Jonty, my Rhodesian Ridgeback, from snacking on the farmers lunch box/leg!! :D instead of getting the shot.
