Gary recently bought a Kood 86mm UV filter from us for his Sigma 170-500mm lens. He captured this shot of Castle Coch from half a mile away using a sturdy tripod.


...and Gary also grabbed this newsworthy photo of a road accident on Friday 13th!






Malcolm Mallison - UK.

Another great landscape photo from Alan, this time of the Low Barnes River.

Gary Hodges - Aberdare, UK.

Gary sent us his shot of Pen-y-fan in the Brecon Beacons, South Wales. Gary had recently bought one of our very popular Nikon Comfort Straps.






Richard Macdonald - Buckinghamshire, UK.

Richard kindly sent in this excellent shot. We especially love the deep green background and the detail in the flowers. Richard bought some of our special ROR Optical Cleaning Fluid and said "I would like let you know that this stuff is absolutely amazing. My optics have stayed clearer for longer and are so much easier to clean now." Now that's praise!

Richard took this photo using a Canon EOS 400D with a Tamron 70-300mm f4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens. 



Alan Dingwall - Sunderland, UK.

Alan sent in this superb shot of the river leading up to Gibson's Cave in Teesdale. He used one of our Kood 100mm ND4 filters to achieve a shutter speed long enough to blur the movement of the water. 

Alan says: "Bowlees visitor centre is just before you get to High Force, it has a fairly large FREE car park with reasonable public toilets. The area is very picturesque in all seasons but a bit muddy in the winter. A short walk from the car park is Gibson's Cave (waterfall). It's pretty unusual to be able to stand behind a waterfall but here it can be done, obviously you get wet but not like you are actually in the fall of water.? Your route from the car parking area is reasonably flat, which follows the path of the beck towards the falls. If dry, a wheel chair could probably manage it. Just past half way there is a fairly steep set of steps and it does get a little muddy from here on in.? There are plenty of picnic tables along the beck to stop and rest if needed. ?The good thing about the place is that it is free and you get up close to the waterfall, unlike high force.? Well worth a visit if you're passing through Teesdale or just on a day out. ?There is no mobile phone signal in this area of Teesdale. (This postcode takes you right there - DL12 0XE)"

Camera: Nikon D7000 






Terence Davies - Porthcawl, UK.

Terence recently bought an Op/Tech Pro Strap from us and kindly emailed us a couple of photos. We think the light and atmosphere Terence has captured in this shot is amazing. 




Danny Porter - Lowestoft, UK.

Danny sent us this superb Digiscope shot. Digiscoping is an economical way of getting close up shots of birds and wildlife by connecting your camera to a spotting scope. For this shot, Danny connected his Canon EOS 500D DSLR camera to a spotting scope using one of our T2 mount adapters. This is a classic bird shot with an uncluttered background and nice sharp focus.





Malcolm Mallison - Bradford, UK

Malcolm sent us this excellent photo taken using his classic 70 year old Leica IIIb. He recently purchased a skylight filter and a lens hood for the beautiful old 9cm Elmar lens.





Angie Morrison - Keswick, Cumbria.

Angie bought a filter holder and a neutral density filter from us recently. On her first trip out with the new equipment she captured this lovely scene. Using the ND filter allowed her to use a slow shutter speed to blur the water.





Barbara Nash

Barbara bought one of our SD card cases and sent us this superb National Geographic style photo taken on her trip to India.




Edward Dullard - Kilkenny City, Ireland.

Edward took this gorgeous festive photograph using one of our photographic backgrounds. It's a really great shot with perfect lighting and that all important fun factor. Well done Edward!
