    Eek Two Kingfishers....I am Sooooo Dead!

    I decided to do some experimenting tonight. So I got my new LED torch out and perched one of our best crystals on top so it was lit from below. I then tried various lenses and ISOs and so on seeing what I could do..... I think this in my favourate:



    Then it all went wrong. I had the crystal on the torch supported by my camera bag. As I finished, the crystal fell about an inch, landed on my 100-400.....and Shattered!!!!

    I just priced a replacement.....Ouch...Worse still is this particular piece was a present to my late mum.....
