hi from the lakes

well thought I sould digits to keys and say Hi.

so better add a bit about my self:

my name is Richard and I live on a bit of rock that jutts out into the Duddon Estury on the edge of the Lake District.

I turned 40 at the beginning of the year and was given a E510 by my children, my first DLSR and first SLR since a OM10 20 odd years ago.

we keep Bees, Castlemilk Moorit sheep and this year also had 3 Tamworth pigs.

I am also involved in historic motor sport racing a 1948 Cooper formula 3 race car and a 1931 MG.

Re: hi from the lakes

Welcome Richard. I am new to this group as well and so far I am most impressed. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. My photographic background sounds similar, in that I hadn't handled a SLR for over 20 years until this August. My other handicap is an extra 25 years on you. Photography hasn't half got complicated for an old un.

Regards,

Dave

and trying to avoid the spinning Coulsey at Mallory Park
