The camera was set up to take shots every 2 minutes

Great pic, did you rub somebody else out from the skyline to the left?

Thanks for the comment Tim.
Nope, I didn't touch the skyline, I can see what you mean but it looks like jpeg artifacts to me, it's not on the original. I'll have a go at re-saving it as try and get rid of them.
Cheers, Paul.

Interesting -- how did you set it up to do that? Is it a standard feature on some digital cameras?

I think you need a fairly decent camera. On mine it can take up to 240 shots in a sequence; you can choose how long you want in between each shot (minumum 30s) and how long before it starts shooting the sequence. I've got some pretty good sunset animations using this feature.

Nice picture. I'm pissed off that i couldn't make it to lundy.Llooks like the conditions were great.

That route looks fab!

Brilliant photo - top marks!!
That's got to be a prime candidate for a hands free accent!!

You can certainly run up this first 30m without any hands but it gets fairly steep towards the top, think it would be possible though! The traverse off left right at the top under the overhang is 'almost' hands free anyway ;o)

Wow great photo, i love the way you get slower to the top...for a good reason looks pretty steep!

Thanks, cool photo

Yeah, no worries. Drop me an email if u want a copy of the 5 mega-pixel version, the shots were taken 2 min's apart.

TP - 27/Sep/06
