What do you mean " sorry about the picture"? It's an excellent picture...much better than a boring blue sky...kind of moody.

Anyway, I can't make it as I come fom the West Midlands, and besides, I'm living in Sweden now! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

She is still due to depart at 8 am Saturday. She
arrived due to a major clothes warehouse near Leicester in the UK burning down, she brought in a complete warehouse full of stock in one lift from China to replace the items that had been stockpiled for the UK Christmas rush...

They are presently filling her with 70,000 shoeboxes full of donated gifts for the Children of the Ukraine as a gift from the Children of the UK over Christmas http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


I have added a picture of her Baby sister that we get in all the time, one last year brought in 1,000,000 playstations in one load due to the unforseen rush for them...

Please tell me you got some shots of it flying past....that lens is pretty good on that camera, as a friend of mine has an older version. I would have had my old cannon T-90 with my 100 to 500 lens waiting for it. I want a D350 as well, but......

Thanks for the pics.....your photography is fine....it's what i do part of the time for a living.

And ...."wanna see it?"....the best title for a thread ive ever seen. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif
