Apologies for another long delay in updating the blog

Sorry again, I went on a photographic workshop with Duncan McEwan
on Mull early in April - I don't give prior information when I will
be out of my house for security reasons!

The week of the workshop the weather was pretty dreadful - lots of
rain and very little decent light. The location, leader and other
attendees were great, but I found it difficult to get inspired by
the weather, and it was not the first time I had been to Mull.
Still, it was VERY enjoyable. I stayed on for an extra few days,
and the weather was better then, but unfortunately I had caught a
cold in the meantime, so I was feeling quite miserable (the long
drive back was horrible, and I went to bed as soon as I got home,
and wasn't fit for anything for several days after). Anyway, some
results from that workshop are now on my web site.
I took quite a lot of equipment with me to Mull, but all but one of
the photos are taken with either the Panasonic GH2 (a few shots
with the Oly 35mm macro, but otherwise the 14-140) and or the Sony
A55 (mostly 16-80 Zeiss lens). The video was all shot with the GH2,
and the long distance shots were with the 100-300 Panasonic lens in
the special video mode which the GH2 allows - ie the birds and
seals are shot at a 35mm equivalent of around 1500mm! It is very
difficult to avoid camera movement at the focal length, even with
a fairly solid tripod!

I spent yesterday at an entirely different location and subject -
an event at the local park. More on this and more experiments with
the iPad/Photosnitch/Pixelsync/Photosmith soon(?).
