Wait...is that an open invitation to the forum?

Can't wait! Will we need sunblock?
I've already started packing. Ford Transit, seven kids in the back sat on beer crates - the mother-in-law likes France too.

Looking forward to a trip to that part of France. Last time I was there it was a place calling itself 'Quality Gites' - I'm going back one day to update their sign.

The owner was alright, a bloke from Wolverhampton who was minus an ear, but his missus was the female equivalent of Ayatollah Khomeini - a right piece of work who charged us £25 for 'soiled' bedsheets following an incident with a four-year-old and a Maryland Cookie. The last straw was when we were invited to lose ourselves for the day because they wanted their pool for a birthday party.

That is one crispy pig !
Seriously, these shots are more impressive then the ones from the first days. Did you changed some of the settings or is it only the lens?
Hi @amit
I posted the ‘piggy‘ to demonstrate the fine detail yielded by the camera and 70-200 particularly in the white hairs on his back but the image posted here doesn’t do justice
Ive only taken the camera out a couple of times as the weather here has been dismal most of the time since I bought the camera
I am nowhere near competent with the camera yet - I’ve not got my head around the settings etc which are a bit alien to me so the settings used so far have been very much ad hoc and a little random to some extent
Ive managed to understand the focussing modes to a certain extent but still need to work on those for better results
It will take a good while before using the camera and it’s settings become second nature
I am so looking forward to shooting some motorsports if and when we come out of this lockdown in the new year by which time I hope to have a much better idea of how to optimise the use of the camera
In the meantime I hope to get some better less wet and overcast weather and to get out to do some more shooting :2thumbs:
