It was all hands on deck as a perfect day dawned for Campbeltown Sailing Club's annual return of keelboats to the water on Saturday. At 8am It was an adult affair. Where were the young Seasports project helpers?

Another image using the bargain basement Tamron 28-300mm lens. Nice and sharp although slow shutter speed is evident from the ball's motion blur. I was so fixated on fast aperture lenses had been ignoring these versatile, cheap former film camera lenses without stabilisation. Shutter was high enough in this shot to counteract shake but not totally stop motion.
Jamie Morris belts a shot in for Carradale but fails to score earlier this month.
A Kintyre Express ferry, heading to Ireland, disappears into the haar covering Campbeltown Loch on Friday April 20, 2018. Taken with my second-hand, 28-300mm Tamron non-vr lens, £59 and part-exchange of my rough 50mm/1.8 Nikon, have a 50mm/1.4 manual workhorse.
Provided a minimum aperture of f8 is used the Tamron, made at least 20 years ago for film cameras is sharp. Just need good light and a steady hand.

|Antony Gormley statue, on Saddell Beach, looking out across Kilbrannan Sound to the Isle of Arran, in winter raiment, early January 2018. The iron statue was installed on the Landmark Trust's estate in May 2015. It is on the beach where Kintyre Pipe Band and Paul McCartney recorded the video for Christmas number one: Mull of Kintyre, in 1977.|
