With shots like these I sometimes miss my G5, in that you could just set it on the ground and compose through the LCD. For this shot though I ended up laying on my stomach after digging a small hole in the sand to get my camera low enough to take the shot.
And I don't have too much more to say about this one other than that I thought it was quite a fitting image with which to begin chromasia's second year. And try it with the dark theme, it looks much better.
Oh, and as it is a new year for chromasia I thought I'd up the width of my images to 800px (from 784px). This is something I've thought about doing for a while, and I guess that now is as good a time as any.
And finally, thanks for all the wonderful comments on yesterday's birthday picture, they're much appreciated. And if anyone would like a printable version of the collage please let me know. I have two versions, one set up for printing on 6x4" and the other for A4. Both include the collage and the following text:
David J. Nightingale (5th February, 2004 to 5th February, 2005).
Drop me an email (djn1 AT chromasia DOT com) l if you'd like a copy letting me know which version you'd prefer (both versions are 1.2MB).
