What a lovely day.
Managed to get loads done in the garden (as well as a glass of good Sauv' Blanc). A day in the Beacons was on the cards as Sarah and the boys are in Yorkshire with mum and dad for the Easter holidays, but Alan had a party with his biker buddies out West, so I stayed here, dug my vegetable patch and played with my new camera.
I am now the proud owner of a Canon 40D and some serious glass to go with it. I haven't used an SLR since I put my T70 in the attic when I got my first digital compact, and Duncan has been making me very jealous with his photography exploits.
I am really looking forward to getting out in the hills with this beast.
The only thing is, it adds about 6lbs to my day pack plus a tripod. I think I read somewhere that they do a camera mount for Pacer Poles... I'm off to Google it.
