I heard a helicopter and had just enough time to pull my camera out and wind up a bit of zoom, then point in what I thought was the right direction and hope for the best, happily I managed a result, maybe not a great one but I was shooting blind(ish). Must be whatever the Chinooks have evolved into as I thought they had pensioned Chinooks off years ago.
Why post a crap piccie like this? it was a nice day so thus a pretty scene, and kangaroos are not that common in other countries.
I have had some balance and fatigue issues that have built up enough over time to ask about.
I was hoping getting zapped by the machine's near fatal dose of radiation would fix my cataracts but I wasn't that lucky.
I've found them in two units locally that I've rendered nicely serviceable again in the last fortnight.
This shot also shows why a wide angle lens (which is also universal on cellphones) is a very lousy choice for portraits. Don't worry about my left eye looking useless as it only sees blurs anyway and until my turn comes up for a cataract operation is only a passenger, hopefully my lesser cataract suffering right eye will hold up until then or I'll be getting myself a white cane.
Ah the joys of ageing, but it's still often better than the alternative.
