    Thanks Kath - I was poking around for something to post as I haven't been out shooting in a while, and came across this one from way back, all alone and forgotten, so I gave it a bit of a spit'n'polish and here it is ;-)

    Thanks Matt :)
    About 1/2 hr later it rained I think... 'twas a while ago.
  • SkattyKat said:
    lol, well I am glad you did Dave

    Nice shot Dave - coulda sworn I saw your riverfire photo on a dell kiosk wallpaper today too. The one with the fireworks going off and the F111 across it that is on all the billboards.
    When I went past again though, it was changed to a similar shot without the fireworks, so perhaps it wasn't yours (But yours is very iconic!).

    I bloody hope not, they haven't paid me anything for it's usage.
    But yeah, it's likely another shot.

    Takes me back, nice one, I'm planning a trip down here soon, I don't have that 'classic' shot yet.

    Nice shot. I need to go here asap. Work is getting in the way of fun.

    A sweet shot Dave, It looks like we have both been looking at the same vintage.

    Great picture! Refreshingly different to the usual blue-sky shots everybody else (including me) usually takes :-) I like it!

    Good one Dave, better than I managed on that trip. God I was cold that morning (no jacket!)

    It's a tough shoot, as you know. Worth another visit at some stage though - wouldn't love to do it with a TS-E lens.
    Damn work! ;-)
    Indeed Simon :)
    It rained a bit later. We were fairly lucky in the wee hours (no cloud), but it definitely came across just after dawn.
    'twas a wee chilly - glad I was sufficiently rugged up :)
