All quiet in the Solent

We took Scooby out for a spin yesterday from Poole to Southampton. I think we only saw one life boat and two ferries all day!

Being bit of an anorak I reckon you should have shot at a faster shutter speed than 1/320 sec and at F5.6 or F8.0 rather than at F4.0 in AP mode!

Nice camera the D70 though.

Might pop out to the platform and take some pictures myself soon!

Regards

Mark

Fantastic shots. It motivated me to have a little trespass on said platform today.

Sadly my results couldn't hold a candle to your action shots.

I instructed Michael my 14 year old son to take 3 runs well to the seaward side of the platform, culminating in a tight turn to starboard before the channel marks.

Every time the boat approached I felt the need to wave frantically, as some manic gesture to indicate more searoom. The locals took this to indicate that I was involved in some kind of personal distress.

As a consequence, I have one shot of nothing but grey water and no useful shots of the boat coming towards the platform at all. I only have relieved shots of the boat going back for it's next run.

Having survived this ordeal, I felt it was time for a pint and whilst tying up next to a 6m Tornado in Yarmouth, I made a mental note of his broken locker on the stern bench. As we got collared by Bernie for mooring fees last weekend, I was in a rush to stow the gear and get ashore before being accosted again. I negotiated the tubes with ease but my next natural footfall was the broken locker. Sadly it was no match for my nimble 17 stones and I found myself in the Tornado's well, surrounded by shards of broken locker hatch.

I then had to go around the local hostelries asking "Anyone own a Tornado that's missing a locker hatch ?"

Still, it beats being in the office.
