    There is a specific type of hearing loss known as 'Shackelton Ear' - though my dad has his Shak Ear from flying a Halifax.

    Lefty Trade: Amar Sood Photo

    One from the archives which I've only just processed - looking through old images as I'm seriously pining for my old Nikkor 50mm f1.2 Ai-S.

    Went for a sheltered view away from the high winds. There is even a fish lift at this dam for the endangered Australian Grayling. The fish are lured into a large cage by flowing water then hoisted over the main dam wall and lowered down the other side.

    Ffynon Fair - St Mary's Holy Well, is halfway up the cliff in the upper RH corner. Final stop for the pilgrims before crossing to Ynys Enlli, Bardsey Island, the reputed resting place of 20,000 saints, and 3 Enlli pilgrimages worth one to Rome.


    Ynys Enlli.
    The well is in the cliffs to the right.

    Homage á Fox Talbot - Laycock Abbey today with my parents.
    Straight reduction from camera (X100,a bit more than a 'mousetrap'...)

    (I'd stick it in the 'blurry photos thread except I did this deliberately..)

    @Gromit - Nice, I've always been curious about the X-H1. I presume you traded the X-T2 against it?

    Hi Amar- I did indeed trade the T2 in, got a good enough price to make it worthwhile. :)

    Had a lot of fun with the T2, it (along with my old Pro1) certainly did a good job when I shot a friend's wedding a couple of weeks ago. Downside is that I've got so used to IBIS I ended up taking risks with shutter speeds, resulting in a handful of slightly fuzzy images. Took the Pen F also which was putting out tack-sharp images at speeds which would've been utter failures with the Fujis.

    This got me thinking that an ideal combo would be that Fuji sensor and ergos/non-menu-delving controls alongside a stabilised sensor. Now, the H1's IBIS isn't even in the same timezone as the Oly (which is crazy-clever) but it's safe'n'sharp down to 1/30sec with the XF56. Even slower if I'm extra careful. In doing so it means keeping ISO low or being able to stop the lens down...perhaps even a bit of both. :)

    The H1 also has a more developed shutter - electronic first curtain, and unbelievably quiet. Noise-wise there's no need whatsoever for the ES.

    You've suddenly gone huge. Not just the camera, but also the photos; they no longer fit on my screen! Look forward to seeing the results
