Supermoon - doing a Denny

Did a Denny last night. It was supermoon time click here for more info

This is the best I could do - mainly as I left it too late and watched a film and only went out at about 11.30 to let Leia have a wee.

It was not without incident either.

I decided I wanted a portrait shot and whilst adjusting the tripod the fixing snapped !!

So this pic was taken with my camera on the bottom lock gate beam.

Then as I was walking over the bottom lock gates to go back to the boat..... plop in went the broken tripod ! It went in at a location that makes it impossible to get out. A few boats have come by already and non in the weedhatch removing a mangled tripod - it was a fold up type and cheap so I recon it will settle in the mud and not be seen for a few more years.

Amateur or what !

Nice piccy Nev, oh the things us photographers have to put up with. Your post made me giggle only because that's exactly the type of thing I would do! Is it boaters do you think?

A cracking photo! I know it is unfortunate but well worth the loss of a broken tripod for!

All the best

Nev, the next thing will be doing a real Denny and going out in the middle of the night and the crack of dawn.
