We had a comedy of errors / mishaps this morning (Sun 15 Jan 2017) one hour before sunrise.
Shane Newman was missing a section of tripod so I said use mine. As Shane used mine the head broke!
We used Shane’s T-shirt and cap to rest our cameras on rocks and managed to get some shots although mine (attached) is a little fuzzy on the left side.
Neil Hellerle did fine I think as he had taped his tripod together
It looks like two of us are going tripod shopping soon

“It isn’t easy at first, but one of the greatest gifts you could ever give someone who makes your heart soar is the freedom to learn their own lessons, at their own pace. Even trickier is discovering that one of the greatest gifts you could ever give someone who gets on your nerves is the freedom to learn their own lessons, at their own pace. And perhaps most challenging of all is understanding that one of the greatest gifts you could ever give yourself is the realization that your heart soaring and your nerves fraying have never been dependent upon other people and their lessons” ~ The Universe
I recently won the 10-20 lens from Sigma South Africa in a local comp. I previously owned one but sold it to upgrade to the Canon South Africa 6D with a Canon EF 17–40mm lens. I kept the old baby Canon 550D as it had served me well and is a great backup. They don’t make the 550D anymore and there are far superior models available, but I’ve always said “I won’t be bothered if you give me back my old camera and lens (Sigma 10-20 lens & Canon 550D body); it’s a magic combination!
Sigma South Africa, by giving me the 10-20 lens once again, has set the photo monster loose!

“It’s the “dance” that never seems to get resolved. We pursue a life of comfort only to find that a life of comfort slowly begins to weaken us. So we pursue a life filled with challenge only to find that a life of challenge slowly begins to wear on us. This “dance” will never be completely resolved. We will always be fluctuating between the two. The only trap is to make sure not to go on the deep end on either side because once we’re in the deep end, it always seems too hard to make it to the other side. Be wary of where you are on this dance. All life fluctuates between these two sides” ~ Brian Kim
