Oh where did you go Kerrie?

I like the monkey :oops: it's cute. When we went to Edinburgh Zoo they were all playing with plastic pots and the baboons slept all day lol. Oh also it must have been the only wet day that month we went as well...it was FREEZING (and wet and very windy)!

I like the swans photo. :D Very nice.

You should, if you can, buy something like the S8000fd (the camera I have) as I reckon you could of come away with an even better photo of them swans if you had abit of zoom to play with.

Just thought i'd show these off from earlier today. I met 3 friends of mine on a local bridge that crosses the A5 and we all photographed the Lancaster as it performed its flypast at Bletchley Park. The weather was really overcast and chilly, coupled with the lancaster wearing a dark livery it made photography abit difficult. Incase you dont know what the lancaster is a world war 2 bomber that was used by the RAF to bomb germany - made more famous by the dambusters squadron however was also used throughout many other squadrons too. Today only 2 Lancasters remain airworthy, one belongs to the BBMF (Battle of Britain Memorial Flight) based at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, the other is in Canada. Both perform at airshows throughout the airshow season. I never tire of hearing those gorgeous engines!

Thanks very much. I think I took that in early 2004. It was taken near St Austell, Cornwall and shows the China Clay pits.

Took this by the grand union canal, Campbell Park. The dog had just got off of a boat that docked next to where I was standing..

Really clear shots. Great weather for taking phohtos by the look of it.
The first one looks scarily close to the tree but i guess thats just the angle.

Thanks Bel Bel. Theres actually 3 planes in that first photo ;) The main one is the Airbus A380 (the new doubledecker the worlds been going crazy over the past few years)
The plane was only a few hundered feet above us as it was on short final for 27L at Heathrow.
