I went to a local resevoir recentley to photograph some birds, when i got ther a near hurricane was blowing and the damn things were bobbing up and down on the waves nothing was in focus, or in shot!!!!!

I went to the coast when the weather was supposed to be windy to get some earth stopping pictures of waves, and I found a millpond!!!!!!

I got ready to capture the lunar eclipse, it was cloudy as hell all night!!!!!

You'd be paranoid too if everything was against you!!!!!!!!!!!

If you could plan something for this coming summer that requires very strong winds and continuous driving rain, that would be appreciated

MX I can particularly recommed the Netherlands as a place for high winds and driving rain. You are welcome anytime, but from April through en October would be a really good time to come Or even in two weeks time when I am off to Vlieland for the weekend. You'd love Vlieland. Just bring your bike.

It's not just you I went to Gretna yesterday to see the Starlings that have been reported in/on the local news, nothing, nada, nowt! It was windy and loads of twitchers and photographers there, maybe they scared them away?

It's Karma!

And Karma's name is Murphy!

Been there - done that - so many times, I thought it was just me.

We must have been some bad dudes in a previous life.

Meanwhile, Clarky's doing just fine!



Better days ahead.....

Next time I'm coming back as a bug in Clarky's back garden. And just as he shoots I'm going to jump out the way

Who mentioned Murphy? That has inspired me to get a few cans of the stuff and spend Sunday afternoon getting drunk, seeing as it's too late to go out and it's raining anyway now, so why not.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you...

And here I am thinking "I" was the only one with luck like that

Got up today, bit of blue in the sky, methinks I'll get down to the local RSPB reserve before the rain starts, getting out of the car I knocked my tripod over breaking the quick release plate mechanism , by the time I got to my favourite haunt it had started blowing a gale and the sky had turned murky grey , I hung around for a while but realised that ISO800 and 1/40th at f6.7 at 500mm WASN'T going to get me anything worth freezing for. I did have one stroke of luck though, I managed to get back to the car just before the heavens opened up.

......And that was a good day
