I took this picture for you today, I remember you saying you were interested in the Beatrice oil rigs that I can see from my front door.
It is not very good because it is on the horizon and far away and my camera has not got a good zoom.
If you can zoom in on it you will see that there are 2 wind turbines to the right of it. I can see two other rigs but they are much further away than this one....Sorry about the quality !
Reccognised the oi rigs but not the wind turbines thought they were another rig further out
It can work Snowy, you just need a special adaptor... Depends a lot on the camera and the scope. Some twitchers use this method to get bird shots as it's cheaper than many of the telephoto lenses plus it's used for astro-photography.
It was no trouble Bear, I only have to point my camera from my front door. I just wish I could make it look a little closer, it would look nice at
night as well when it is all lit up and you can see the flame burning in the night sky !
I can make out the turbines, great shot Snowy
That's a shot from your front door? I'm mildly impressed. If I took a shot from my front door, all Id get was a shot of my path leading out to the street and my neighbour's driveway over the road! My back door, at least gives me something more useful, the back of the pub on the main street a few hundred metres away!
Perhaps Bear would like this one, it is a series of caves just 5 minutes walk from my front door.....He could stay in them for his holidays.
Hi Snowy, thanks for the cave photos, I would love to explore. just the sort of place I love to visit. ( Dont think I'd stay over though, I like my
caves with a all mod cons )
Regards the Bear
You live in a beautiful part of the world, Snowy.
This is another that is just 2 minutes walk for me, it was taken in winter and shows the icicles hanging from the cliffs.
Better not walk under it.
Are you near the stacks?
I've always wanted to see those ones that look like sails out in the water.
Those are the ones snowy. A bit far for a jaunt though.
I'll dig out some of my recce shots of Caithness over the next few days
Thank you Faolan for sorting the link out for me, I dont know what I did wrong but I think they are are good pictures and worth seeing!
