Thank for the comments folks.
I was in France from the 15th to the 31st August, the first week was fairly poor, the second as you can see was firing.
We had a couple of weeks here in North Devon when the water just cleared up and when it was calm had a awesome colour to it, prehaps something in the water or the fact things had settled for a while?
I use a Canon Digital SLR Camera matched with a combination Canon and Sigma Glass. I have maximum reach of 600mm @ f5.6.
Hey Mike, no regrets at all just wish money grow on trees, then I'd become a gardener aswell.
