Well, that’s definitely getting better. Still a way to go, but definitely an improvement on the beginning of the week.
A lens, that is. Kindly take your minds out of the gutter! Thanks to my good friend Mr Miller, I’ve obtained a suitably long telephoto zoom lens for somewhat less than I was expecting to pay. And I do like a bargain. Full details to follow, but here’s a quick test shot taken from my back window, looking across the Team Valley towards what I think is Lobley Hill Road. It’s either that or somewhere near it, anyway. The approximate straight line distance to the shop in the centre of the picture is a mile and a half.
The picture was taken without a tripod, so it may not be as sharp as it could be (and reportedly the lens tends to be a little on the soft side at its extreme end), but it’s pretty clear….
 Hi Kevin
 Google Street View doesn’t go quite far enough for me to be sure.
