At Low Tide is my pick of a superb set.
LBA is good for you, a Lens a day helps you work, rest and play.

Many thanks for all the renewed interest in these shots your comments are always much appreciated.

David, I do hope your wife is better now.

I've become a bit of a "country" member of the Forum recently due to the acquisition of some light-weight, cut-price micro 4/3 equipment (which I love using) but today I risked a hernia by dusting off my K5 and Tamron 17-50 for a trip to Dartmoor. The weather was perfect but I sorely missed the way one can use a quality EVF to assess exposure before pressing the shutter.

Off to Snowdonia next weekend and I've not used my beloved K10 for months...
Best wishes,

I'm pleased these were resurrected, having missed them the first time round, they are such a cracking set.

Yes, thanks Andrew after a very worrying time she is now well on the road to recovery, so much so I was able to make my annual trip to Snowdonia at the end of May, an area I know you love as much as I do.
Quite a few photographers I know seem to be downsizing their gear so they can travel light. Mine seems to have got a lot heavier since I bought the new D FA*70-200mm zoom. But it seems worth it, its so sharp I have no worries when doing tight crops and blow ups. The quality is outstanding.
