Post Number 500- The New Nikon D4s

Ok there has been a lack of posts from me recently, due to a camera malfunction I had to await the delivery of a new unit and here it is:

I will spend the next couple of days with the manual putting in all my custom functions etc, then although it is quiet at present I will take it out for some testing (weather permitting, lol)

Near miss from forecast storm surge

Well luckily the latest storm surge that was predicted to slam into the Southwest veered South before high tide.  Anyhow instead of Porthleven I decided to look for a new area for storm pictures.  I went down to the Wheal Prosper mine at Rinsey, despite the lack of waves there is potential there should another storm hit.

Still on the weather front gales also struck the power lines and tree in my garden. The tree had to be felled for safety reasons, however it did give off a few large blue sparks when shorting the overhead cables together until I got the camera out then it stopped lol.
