A most fortuitous day at Ribblehead Viaduct with Preston Photographic Society today.
One of the members doesn’t have a camera at the moment so I offered my Nikon D60 for him to use (it needs exercising to make sure it keeps working). I get there and suddenly he’s offered another camera. A Sony one! Being the hardcore Canon user he opts for the Sony over my Nikon. Oh well.
The weather was actually on our side. Pretty much ever shot of Ribblehead Viaduct is on a warm clear sunny summer day. The snow and fog gave it a different look and with the fog changing meant it was worth sticking around.
Today because we were only going to be in one location I brought my Bulldog 8×10 camera with me. However after getting a couple of shots off disaster struck when it fell backwards, landed on the snow as softly as possible and… all the glued on bits popped off. I think I used the wrong glue to stick it together. I’ll just use the 2 part epoxy to properly glue it together again next time. I had to put it back in the car however annoyingly enough the person with the car keys just happened to be as far away as humanly possible just to annoy me.
Now that D60 finally became a lucky boon. I could now take pictures again. Thing is even though I was armed with a DSLR with a full battery and an empty SD card I still only took about 25 shots. I really don’t understand how people can take hundreds of shots at just one place.
