    I am glad you did not delete it, lovely.

    Some Aeolian sunsets

    Armando, have a look at the angle of the mast of the white yacht, in harbour. This was a few hours before the photo with all the clouds. I suspect it would not have suited you at all! Dallas, time to venture onto the ocean. Perhaps first on a large ship, to acclimatise.

    Dallas, Armando, Clactonian, thank you. §2 was followed by a stormy night, rather uncomfortable in a boat on a rather exposed mooring.

    Agreed, which is why I will use the old version until it packs up or until I buy a new desktop computer.

    Birding with the Fuji 80 mm macro

    Thanks, Mike, you are right about the decline, which was why I was glad to have the chance to photograph these specimens.

    Thanks, Dallas, it did seem to enjoy what was on offer.

    It depends on usage, and on the quality of the rechargeables. I have a set of Eneloops and typically recharge around every two weeks. It works out a lot cheaper than buying batteries, and is better for the environment.

    I have the old style trackpad which I feed with rechargeable batteries, as it is very greedy. Mrs A's iMac has the new style trackpad which is very nice and, as Mike says, is rechargeable. My trackpad is so old I cannot remember when I bought it.

    Sparrows have little fear of humans. Especially when food is around.

    Good luck with your choice. The advantage of a sit/stand desk is that you can frequently change your position and always have the surface of the desk at the right height for ergonomic typing. The thing to avoid is always being in the same position, whatever it is.

    Interesting. You might want to consider an adjustable height desk. You can make small adjustments to suit your position, including standing as a change from sitting. I have one and it has been very good for my back.

    The cloud cover in the UK was so complete that there was no point in even thinking of going out to set up. You have produced an unusual and beautiful image of the event.

    Nikon Had No Choice

    I don't think the D5 and the GFX are really competitors. I recently shot the GFX on a day's shoot organised by Camera World (a UK retailer from whom I have bought Fuji gear) and Fujifilm UK. I had the use of the GFX for the day, with a variety of lenses. I have not had time to process the images, but my immediate reaction is that they are of superb quality (the camera's work, not mine!). The camera is a lot like my X-T2 and it was easy to set up and use. Users of the X-H1 would feel even more comfortable. However, the camera is nowhere near as fast and responsive as a D5. The D5 is a superb high ISO sports, action and wildlife camera, amazingly fast and responsive. But it is not Nikon's best in term of image quality, that is the D850. I know that Michael Erlewine prefers the D850 to the GFX, but I have not done the comparison myself.
