First post for two weeks

Well due to inclement weather work etc the opportunities to get fresh images have been in short supply.  Today I visited the Grey Seals at Godrevy but far to windy on the cliff top.  Next was Carnsew, Newlyn Harbour and Marazion, however no luck at Marazion or Newlyn so on reflection I would of got more pictures in the Carnsew/Hayle area. Today though the main purpose was to test the newly aquired 2x converter and my initial thoughts are not much use for flight shots but for getting distant portrait/static shots useful. I was suprised to see it still retain AF on the 600mm (though via the central focus point only).

IMAGE EXIF: All the images were taken with a Canon 1d MK111, 2 x teleconverter (1200mm), Aperture Priority, F8, 1/125 to 1/4000 sec shutter and 0 to +2/3 stop compensation
