    Default 2010 GAGB calendar

    Hi we're hoping to be able to produce another calendar for next year.

    So we're after content

    What we will need is a link to a photo of yours taken while out geocaching.

    You will need to tell us when it was taken, which cache, your favourite colour LOL.

    Thanks in advance

    GC1F4M4 The Proverbial View - one for a 'winter' month

    GC1D0WK Cardiff Rivers #3 Taff - one that makes me smile


    If you decide that you do want to use any of these, then I have better resolution images.

    Just a quick note, please ensure that if possible you've got original images of the highest resolution possible. A few of last years entries had to be replaced at the last minute when it was realised that they weren't of sufficient resolution.

    I've some pretty cool shots from my summer caching adventures; Orkney, Shetland, 3-Peaks, Mega/Weston which can be found via the Gallery link from my profile, or I do have a couple of emails with them on, as smaller imbedded images. If I knew where to send them, I would...

    Out caching today. Lovely light, so i thought I'd send this one as a contribution

    (Picture Links to Picasa, where the full res version can be downloaded)
    Taken pretty much standing on GCTGVG Gummers How

    If you want to use any others in that album too, most were taken whilst caching and are close to caches. I can give higher res versions if needed. The one at Finsthwaite pre-dates our caching, but there's 5 caches within a few hundred yards now, including one just out of shot to the right.

    These photos were taken on 28th Aug this year, when I was at the Ulster Rally. On my way home I did a geocache, which was a couple of bends down the road from this stage of the rally. It was Mullaghsandall Bend, GC1E7RQ. Favouite colour is blue.

    A few more autmnal pictures, taken today.





    The nearest cache is GC1TNC8, but there's a whole ring of about 2 miles through the deer park (LLB1-5, Kaa's crossing, Monkey Business, Baloo's Brakfast, White Fawn and Raksha's Rest, and the final for Paddle & Walk No 2)

    In that last one, I can confirm that the people in it are perfectly happy! That's MiniG, VMG and one half of Guanajuato.

    As with my last picture, the Picasa album should give the full res version.

    I do like the shot of the evo! We're off to Grizedale stages in a few weeks. Shame the caching trial in Cumbrian forests doesn't cover Grizedale, yet.

    Actually, no! I want one though! Children tend to be a bit of a drain on the resources so I can't justify one.

    Its a Fuji S5500, so about 4 revisions obsolete now. It wasn't anywhere near their top of the range camera at the time either. It has a decent zoom (10x I think), but much beyond about 5x there's terrible darkening in the corners and at the extreme end, everything just comes out washed out. I leave it on program auto exposure rather than full auto, so I can change the aperture and film speed myself.
    The most useful function is automatic bracketing, so it takes one slightly underexposed, one at what it judges to be best exposure and one slightly over exposed. I've found for landscapes that the under-exposed pictures tend to be the better ones.

    Personally, I want someone to develop a digital 'film' that can be used in an old 35mm body - batteries in one side, memory & electronics in the other side. I've got an old 35mm SLR that I've not used for a long time. It was a really cheap one, but the picture quality, even with cheap films, knock socks of anything I've seen digitally. Resolution isn't everything. To my eyes, digital lacks the colour breadth of film. But I can't afford to keep getting film processed.

    But those pictures, it was the natural vividness of the colours that make them. Truly, those are completely untouched from the camera. It really did look like someone had been out with the yellow spray paint!
