Re: Golden Hour at LHR

Great set as Mike asks where did you take them from ditto, excellent. I think they might be from the Radisson Paul / Mike but I believe you have to take through glass there and if that's the case that makes them even better as a photo achievement Andy do you mean the renaissance heathrow? the Radis...

Re: canon 7D mk11 front focus issues

I've just got rid of my 100-400 L mk1 for the simple reason that I seemed to bin more than I kept - have traded that for a Canon 300mm F4 L. Dan I printed off a focus calibration chart mounted it to c...

Re: Manchester 1st July

some great shots paul

I think where these were taken from is my fave spot on the south side now as you can still avoid the fence and get some nice rotation shots, was it a stop over on the way to RIAT again?
