Safari Njema - Crinan Canal

Heading south east from Crinan through the canal towards Ardrishaig. The canal was constructed between 1794 and 1801, providing an alternative and shorter sea route for the fishing and commercial ships. This was popular with the Clyde puffers that carried their cargo between the villages of the West Highlands and the larger town of Glasgow on the Clyde, without the need to travel around the Kintyre peninsula.

St Peters Square Vatican City Rome Italy designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St. Peter’s is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and remains one of the largest churches in the world. While it is neither the mother church of the Roman Catholic Church nor the cathedral of the Bishop of Rome, St. Peter’s is regarded as one of the holiest Catholic sites. It has been described as “holding a unique position in the Christian world” and as “the greatest of all churches of Christendom”.

By Roman Catholic tradition, the basilica is the burial site of its namesake Saint Peter, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and, also according to tradition, the first Bishop of Rome and therefore first in the line of the papal succession. Tradition and strong historical evidence hold that Saint Peter’s tomb is directly below the altar of the basilica. For this reason, many Popes have been interred at St. Peter’s since the Early Christian period. There has been a church on this site since the time of Constantine the Great. Construction of the present basilica, replacing the Old St. Peter’s Basilica of the 4th century, began on 18 April 1506 and was completed on 18 November 1626.

Crocodile Rock Millport

Crocodile Rock Millport - It’s possibly been around for a million years, but just over century ago Mr Brown a local to Millport was passing by after a partaking of lunchtime refreshment or two and saw the bare rock as a crocodile and decided to set to work with a brush and paint (or so the story goes). This well-known landmark has become a famous attraction with generations of children being photographed on the Millport Crocodile.

Millport, the island's only town, is located in a bay on the south coast.  Looking south beyond the neighbouring island of Little Cumbrae, lies Ailsa Craig about 40 miles away. Ailsa Craig which marks the midway point to Northern Ireland, which in clear conditions is just visible. To the north beyond the upper Clyde estuary, can be seen Ben Lomond and the Arrochar Alps. To the west of Cumbrae lies the islands of Bute and Arran, while on the other side of Knapdale the Paps of Jura are visible. A few miles to the east are the Renfrewshire hills, with the town of Largs and village of Fairlie and the deep water coal terminal and power station at Hunterston on the shoreline.

Cheap Camera Versus Expensive Camera

Cheap Camera Versus Expensive Camera

Source:  Fstoppers

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article pitting the venerable Nikon D800 against a lowly Nikon D40x in a portrait shoot. The purpose of the article wasn’t to see if the D40x was as good as the D800 (it obviously isn’t), but to ascertain whether a beginner would be better off getting something cheap to start out with than starting with a behemoth of a camera.
