I had a scroll through my phone and realised I take a lot of pictures of dogs but none are very good, so here's the dogs

I suspect the dog is thinking
"Oh boy, I bet there is a tasty treat at the top of that tower!"

Also, are you one of the people who claims to live in two places?

Photo taken from the Islands I assume?
A great place to wander about, especially when the weather is good.

The Silvery Tay from the Law, just before Christmas. Looking a bit golden (probably all the Fifer's pishing in it tbf).  It was a cracking morning and unfortunately I only had my shitey iPhone.

Sleeping out again?

Nope, just a Pars fan, living in Toronto

It is indeed from the Islands, this was in August not long after they had opened up the islands again to the public after flooding. The dogs loved it, then got home and passed out for the rest of the day

This one's a bit of a cliche, but if you get the right conditions, and can be fucked getting up early enough, early morning on Rannoch Moor is glorious. This is about a 500 yard walk from the A82 at the Bridge at Lochan na h-Achlaise

Some great photos folks - very impressive. Thought I’d add some to the collection from a wee jaunt around Starks Park a while back 19878022303_a456bfdc19_o.jpg20310196418_7d4e14eaf7_o.jpg19875235204_bbe5f371dc_o.jpg20273069798_d42a94bb75_o.jpg

One of my favourite shots of 2017. Golden Eagle chick taken on the nest in south Uist last July. Need a licence to photograph Golden Eagles but this was a fair bit away so no disruption.

Nice capture, what piece of glass are you using?  I've currently found that my 70-200 is just not long enough for what I need (espically when I'm shooting sport such as football/rugby/shinty) so I'm curently weighing up getting a teleconverter (either a 1.4 or 1.8) or seeing how much I can get on the black market for a slightly used kidney and find a 70-400 second hand.  I love my Sony but when it come to lenses I'm limited in choice compared to the Canon/Nikon range.

I'll be starting up next month, Snowman Rally on the 10th and then I have the Wildcats Community leagues for the following 3 Saturdays.  Need to hunt out the gloves.

Cheers bud.

I have the Sigma 150-600 Sport. Good lens but very heavy. Wasn't sharp out the box so had to buy the docking station and do the manual adjustment myself which took the best part of a full day. I use a Blackrapid harness for general carrying about and a Manfrotto tripod for static stuff.

Nice piece of kit, I have the Sigma 70-200 and found there was also a slight issue with front focusing but only slight (not noticeable unless you really look for it) so I just roll with it.  Might just have a look out for the 150-600 however as the 120-300 F2.8  is out of the price range at the moment.

Was the manual adjustment  just time consuming or something a bit more difficult?

Great thread, first time I’ve dipped in. Stevo & Jupe are fantastic photographers, also great pictures from most on the thread, I’m very impressed indeed.
Do you guys ever “develop” & display the great pictures you take, or is all about progressing & getting better?
Personally, I’d have loads from here on my walls.
