    this morning, we had beautiful light over our forests and lakes, so I decided to give my new tripod (Berlebach 2042 with a 540 head) some field testing.
    So, I loaded it with the Reflex-Nikkor 500/8 and off we went !

    Here's a few shots :





    Unfortunately, the fun came to a premature end when the rain began :mad:


    Although the Berlebach tripod is quite heavy (3.6 kg with the head), it still is very transportable and enjoyable in the field.
    Especially in early morning cold, carrying around some wood instead of metal, is a real pleasure.
    No more frozen hands ...

    Comments and critique welcomed as always !

    You've caught some beautiful autumn colours in those photographs as well as some very interesting effects, number 3 looks like an impressionist painting whilst number 5 looks like shattered toughened glass.
    What an amazing product range the tripod manufacturer has, you must have been spoilt for choice.
