    They are correct:

    F/2.8
    1/10 sec
    ISO 80

    I did not realize my camera embedded all my setting in each shot.

    BTW - I took over 150 shots that evening and only captured about 5 strikes. That one was by far the best.

    yeah.... i think that a fairly large number of camera's... especially newer ones, embed the information. Can get quite a bit of info from it too.

    I've recently spend a couple of days in Iceland. Very lovely place. Since the island is pretty much on top of 30 inactive volcano's the scenery is weird in the un-populated areas.

    The movie Volcano does come to mind.

    Bay area in Reykjavik. Just a photo that turned out nice. A romantic couple walking the road ahead. pretty cliché when you think about it.

    Iceland generates it's power from geothermal activity. The hot air/water pockets are used in power plants. A completely green solution.

    Of course that heat can be used hot thermal baths as well :) This is the Blue Lagoon, that water has a lot of sulfa and minerals in it hence the color, which really is milky-blue. And its pretty cozy at 40 Degrees C as well.

    I really like this one. Bay area of Reykjavik. This shot turned out really great.

    Overall it's somewhat expensive yes, but not really extreme or anything. They like tourism, and did something about it.

    I'd say the pricelevel is on par with the Netherlands.

    Rob, what were you doing on Hayling Island?

    It's full of old people!

    [EDIT]ooh here's a crappy phone pic of Southampton Parkway Airport which I walk past on my way to work. The sun was just coming up and it looked kinda weird.

    @Ian - Yeah, it was actually full of old people... but a few really good looking birds walking on the beach looked really intrigued about me with my big camera and tripod... Shame I wasn't in a chat up mood, they'd be MINE!!! Anyway, my Tamron 90mm 2.8 macro lens came yesterday, here's a little preview of what's to come ,.-)

    Not really no, just saw some windmills and steadied the camera as much as I could in the car and snapped when it was in the middle.

    Sharpened up the image a little, added some bloom and resized it.

    The original is mostly the same.

    I'd say around 10cm... maybe slightly less... you can really get close to your subject. It's a fantastic lens, super sharp, great resolution and it's very very clean overall. I very highly recommend it!
