    We took our little daughter to the zoo today for the first time, so I tried shooting animals for the first time - with some mixed results. Here are some of the better efforts:

    and finally, Belfast Lough enjoying a brief 5 minutes of clear skies today - very shortly after the heavens opened again :angry:

    comments very welcome!

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Were's that zoo?

    I find the photos you're presenting are all quite good. They have a nice sharpness (this small size they do, wouldn't know about how they present themselves larger). That lion "teenager" looks as cool as teenagers wish to look ;). And I like how we can see the rain in the photo of the giraffe!

    I'll be in the area from 30 July until 10 August. I'm trying to bring together TPF people from around there for a short meet-up - since I'll be travelling with a group and will have to follow their itinerary (for most of the time), the only time I might get a chance to have that little N.I. Meet-Up would be on Sunday, 2 August, for the Sundays traditionally are "free with hosts". Depending on my hosts, they might find it a relief not having to organise anything for me on that day and I might be free to get myself from Ballyclare into Belfast and meet you (and others). What do you say?

    that was at Belfast Zoo, the landscape type shot is from the top of the hill the Zoo sits on looking over the Newtownabby area and up Belfast Lough towards Carrickfergus.

    A meet like that sounds good.
