oh that is bad, watch out for trees that are likely to fall on you after the fire has ben trough.

just googled it, its a shocker and its only early in the season for you guys.
From what I read , it appears noone died, that is something at least.

Had enough of fires after the ones we had here a couple of years ago, a few work colleagues lost their homes and another and his son got caught out and didn`t make it.

My back hurts! Serves me right for digging and pouring the foundation for my new telescope pier rather than getting a man in. I wasn't this fragile forty years ago!! :x

@Mark sorry to hear that must be a real pain.

I am thinking when will Jessops have the 24-105mm back in stock so I can buy it (through the cameralabs link of course!). They seem to be very short on all stock at the moment because of the earthquake.

Clicking with customers is one thing. but when they decide buy 4 albums and a canvas. That's just a cherry on top.

Last day in the glorious capital city of Kabul Afghanistan. Actually, it's not that glorious and I would more compare it to an arm-pit...or at least it smells like one. Don't think that comment refers to the people, I have met some nice Afghans.
