I have started to move some of your images, but if you want any of them in different galleries just do it - they are your piccies.
300, that's really nasty , but at least they were able to fix them, and you got them back quickly.
I have had trouble with mine, I got muck on the mirror and tried to clean it myself not knowing the extra damage I was causing. I sent it to Canon here in NL and got it back a few weeks later but there were still marks although it was alot better. Hubby wanted to send it back again, I was inclined to keep it, anyway I gave in and it is actually due back today - I doubt I will ever want to change lenses again!
Ooo a geology gallery, that's great. Please by all means start moving my fossils, minerals and skeleton pics into here. I am up to my eyes at the moment so if you can move them it will same me a job
Glad you're enjoying the Sri Lanka pics - I have to get a new passport before I can head off anywhere else - mines chockka. I do fancy Iceland I must admit, and its a great year for the northern lights.
Just had the camera + lens back from Canon - nearly £300 repair bill, Ouch!
Me again! While you were away we finally got our geology gallery (Paul and I had hoped it would be called something like Geology and Paleantology gallery). We have moved our images into this gallery already and I have moved a lot of Scribers images there.
Do you mind if I move some of your pictures over? You have lots of skeletons, fossils and minerals which I can immediately think of which can go there. If you would rather do it yourself - great, but if you have no time I don't mind doing making a start and doing it bit by bit. Let me know.
I have been enjoying your Sri lanka images -if only I were brave enough to venture away from Holland and England. I think if ever I went somewhere it would be Iceland, or Lapland - I don't know why I hate the cold and snow here, but they appeal.
Oh no that's awful, thank goodness you had a second camera with you!
What a startling array of things you managed to see, it sounds wonderful, they will liven up the gallery a bit.
Don't work too hard - it'll be a long time until your next holiday, ease yourself in slowly .
Hi Goosey, first day back in at work - body is still on Sri Lanka time though and I'm waking up at an ungodly hour of the morning...
Had a camera drama - my Canon 50D with 70-300mm lens fell out of my backpack on day 2 - sensor knackered - just packed them up for those nice Canon repair people to work their miracles. Luckily still had my 550D with 'normal' and macro lens so all was not lost!
A few nice damsel and dragonflies, lizards, giant squirrel!, bugs, various grasshoppers and crickets along with asian elephants, baby turtles, a few macaques and langurs will appear in due course. Also plenty of amazing Buddha carvings, temples, cool scenery, groovy batiks and other bits'n'pieces
Hi thanks, I am glad its not just me but its so frustrating as there are some amazing creatues in the gallery and the photography is something else, it's haed to believe these things actually live in tha grey and stormy North Sea. It is such a great resource.
Sri Lanka eh, have you been before? Thats not too far away (time wise ) now is it what with Christmas looming.
Take care, it will be good to see you up and running to full capacity again after the weekend work has finished .
I've just visited a random Marlin gallery of rather nice Sea Anemones etc.
MarLIN - The Marine Life Information Network
All the pics have uploaded ok for me - their site is sometimes a bit slow to show all the pics though.
Yep, I have been quiet of late - the camera is fine though Been doing some work at the weekends for a Geochemistry consultant that sub-contracts to the Uni - no rest for the wicked - so I haven't had a chance to get out and about. Hopefully in a couple of weeks the chains will be removed...
Next trip is Sri Lanka mid January for a couple of weeks. A friend recommended it despite the fact she visited in the monsoon season and there were lots of leeches! Should be a quite relaxing trip with great food and hopefully some wildlife to keep me clicking.
bye for now
Hi, I was just wondering, do you have problems with images loading on the Marlin website gallery?
I get images but also a lot of blank spaces with a red X. It is a site I tend to use a lot because it is so great but I don't know if images have been removed and thats why I can't see them or if it is something to do with the computer.
BTW, you have been noticeably quiet lately, I hope all is well with you and your camera?
Have you got one of your mega trips in the pipeline?
See you and take care
Here we are again, back home as if I have never been away!'Had a great time though, seemed to do so much,as always there was still things and place we didn't get to do or see. We went to Haybridge which was lovely, I didn't see any snakes sadly as there was no one around to ask. Below the office we went on another path - a wooden walk way over the marsh and mosses, but when the path run out we couldn't go on as we needed wellies really, but it was so nice and we will be going down there again.
Our daughter decided to play golf instead of go apeing, but they loved the heavy horses.
More piccies to upload and posts in the making for the next week or so. Waiting to get out and about on my own patch now and see whats happening.
See you around!
