Paul(Woofmix), Duncan (Wanderer) ChrisW , Ian and myself met up yesterday and in the evening went down to Talisker Bay for a few 'snaps'. I've attached one of Paul and Ian for you to view.
Hopefully more will follow as the week end progresses.
"Envious"?
Of course not - thanks to the quality of I presume the E-5 I can see that there is absolutely no way that you all are going to succeed at sea fishing! You've obviously gone ill-equiped, without proper rods, and worst of all, due to the quality of the camera image, I can see that those two people have even forgotten to rig up a proper line to enable them to catch fish, so this is obviously a staged photo.
Caught out, hook line and sinker

I would stick to photography - with an image like this I'm sure that there'll be much for us to enjoy if you show us some scenery rather than staged fishing shots

Like many others, wish I was there, and hope you all have a fab time. There will be a lot of great shots to come from this trip.

Regards
Chris

Re: Meeting in the Highlands?

OK then. it's 10pm and the group have just left the house to go back to their B&B's and photograph a sunset or two.

I've attached one image from today which was the result of me being left unsupervised with the 8mm for a wee while.

That's a lovely composition with dramatic perspective and a strong foreground. I bet you end up buying one of those lenses.

I hope you're going to have those other b*gg*rs up for sunrise tomorrow, seems a shame for them to go all that way and not make full use of the daylight!
