Almost a blizzard really, the wind scattering the snow flakes in every direction, making keeping them off the lens virtually impossible without leaving the lens cap on...

FFR in snow




My 1983 Series III FFR (Fitted For Radio) Land Rover, in the snow at Castle Yeti. Also the first shots with my 70-210 f2.8. Not really the conditions that I bought the lens to be used in, but what the hell?

If you follow the rules by the book, you wouldn't expect these to work. BUT, they do, and they do very well too :-) Liking the comp of the 2nd one a lot ;-)

I like the way you've taken these. Most people wouldn't have bothered.
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

Thanks Bob, I couldn't NOT have a go, after seeing the view from the kitchen window, I just had to... :)

Judging by the pictures, I'm guessing you're back in the UK. :))

Where abouts is the terminal? I was in Malta in the early 50's so my memories were centred around Valletta and Sliema. Of course we still had a naval presence in those days.

The rig is in Palumbo shipyard at Paola, part of the Grand Harbour by Valetta. We were staying in the Diplomat Hotel in Sliema and the container terminal is near St. Peters.
