About this image

The M3 and 300mm lens (fixed in place using gaffer tape as the slide tends to slide) is a nice simple combination.

I spent a happy 30 minutes in the garden, in a deckchair, drinking tea and waiting for tiny gaps in the cloud. Happily, I got lucky. 

Looking forward to 2024 in Texas! May change my name to Jeb, Billy-Bob or Bubba-Jo for the occasion.
