Seriously, you wouldn't, by looking at the images over the past few weeks, think that I have struggled for years to get something respectable from the Cowrie hole. I am not sure if it is the change in season or just more effort but I really am happy with why has come from this position recently.
I have to say though that both tonight and when I last shot a month ago, my camera and I did cop a good few solid splashes which has resulted in me having to suck the salt water out of every nook and cranny on my machine. It's not a good look and people think you're crazy sucking on a camera!
This is what it's all about though...the pictures...not the gear. I think, as photographers, we forget that sometimes. That's because the gear is so ludicrously expensive!
