Hi Stew, I use a Redsnapper 283 Aluminium Tripod, it's very well made, sturdy and solid, although not the lightest but this doesn't bother me. The legs extend almost to horizontal, so it will go low, and the centre column is reversible. Great value at around £75 including the head.

Really nice shot David, I love the delicate muted sunlight on the foreground objects - guess there wasn't much light there at all? Sky tones are perfect too.

Maybe you could try another approach and re-shoot again on a Manfrotto? (sorry, hard to resist)

Thanks Nigel, you are right about the light, it was nearing sunset, so it was getting gloomy. Regarding the tripod, no need for a Manfrotto, Redsnapper is better and cheaper Apologies to any Manfrotto owners, I'm only joking of course.

Cheers

Nice colours and tones. But I think that it looked even better in tighter crop.
