Spray, waves, water, a car and a number.... part 1

 Well a bit of a selection today, from bloody expensive cars to breaking waves and spray.  haven't really done much to them apart from a mild sharpen.

Hmmm well track me down.....

 It seems I am now the proud owner of a digital tracking chip that I'm told can find whatever it's attached to anywhere.
 The big question is what the bloody hell to I attach it too?.
 Never loose my keys?  I haven't lost a key in years.
 Find your car in the car park... yeah that will be handy trying to find the biggest bloody car in my local shopping car park which must have all of about 40 spaces. Some days I must spend oh.... all of 30 seconds looking for it.
 I could attach it to my phone, but I need the phone to track the chip so I can't see that being a big success.
 I think I'll bung it in my camera bag for now and see if it works.

A few Nikon pics

 I was very kindly given an old Nikon D2x, in it's day a cracking camera, now compared to more modern cameras it struggles a bit.
 Here are a few pics, not many as I don't have a charger for it yet, I have ordered one but it could take a week or so.

 Anyway first few.

Flight safety! Huh!

 An airliner with 23 people on boad lost an engine cowling on take off from Cape town, it turns out some work on the engine was done by an unqualified assistant who failed to replace it properly, the after work inspection also failed to spot it wasn't latched, and the pre flight check also missed it.
 The leading edge of the wing also sustained some damage from the cowling when it seperated.
 Makes you think doesn't it.

Return to the lighthouse

 I decided to make a return visit to Whiteford point lighthouse today, the sunset and tide times were right.
 After spending a bit of time there in the freezing wind taking pics and video it became apparent that the sun still wasn't going to set in the right place for the lighthouse but too far to my left behind the headland (I'd takes a compass bearning of the suns setting angle) It looks like another month or six weeks will be just about right.

 Anyway, here's the shots from today..
