The weir on the river Wye at Bakewell in Derbyshire.

The Millenium bridge I was on is probably now more famous for the thousands of "love locks" that adorn it. Love them or loathe them, the locks, along with other things certainly draw the tourists into Bakewell. The car parks were solid today.

Out today for a 110 mile motorcycle ride, making most of the warm/dry weather here in Central Scotland. Enjoying my nearly eleven year old Suzuki V-Strom DL1000.
First time using my newly purchased Nikkor 24-120mm f4 - lens bought from Doug from this Parish.
This is a beautiful mountain road called Glen Quaich which is ten miles length and eventually brings you into Kenmore which touches onto Loch Tay.

D850 tilt screen (no display) query;

Was out today on a eight mile country walk with wife & dog etc, had the D850 and Nikkor 24-120mm f/4 lens with me.

Problem is I wanted to take a few photo's with the rear tilt screen out from its housing, but when pulled out there was NO display on the rear screen, I didn't use Liveview button for any shots........but with the tilt screen pulled out it had no display....(???)

So without using Liveview can you actually view a shot via the rear screen whilst it's pulled out from its housing does anyone know please .....?? Annoying ok.
Can anyone shed any light on this problem please, appreciated.

Cheers;
Peter

You have to activate live view to get an image on the screen whether it’s in its housing or tilted, that’s how any D-SLR works. To get any image on the screen you have to flip the mirror up, which means using the live view button. DSLR’s don’t automatically swap between VF and LCD like mirrorless (y)

Ah right.......thanks for that, I actually thought the rear screen was broken/defective. Appreciate your fast reply/advice/knowledge...!!

Haven't had my D850 in my hands for over 2 weeks!
Got taken in with a heart attack and within 12 hrs went down with Pancreatitis and a lung infection.
Need to restore my strength now before anymore trips out with the camera and a gallbladder removal operation.
Not the best 2 weeks in my life but on the positive side, I lost more body weight than the combined weight of my kit :)
Only just seen this Roger, I hope your on the mend now and you will soon be back out there snapping the spring species :)

I did my first ten mile country walk yesterday in quite a few years since my own health issues, it felt so good. Getting there - simply fabulous..!!

Onwards and upwards.

We headed out for a ten mile country walk yesterday with our border collie to the Trossachs, Aberfoyle, such a beautiful part of Central Scotland. Was quite overcast for most of the day for landscape photography but chanced it with this capture.

As a tourist attraction, Bakewell is quite high on the list of Derbyshire towns people like to visit. It was only today that I realised how busy it gets and it wasn't even market day.

Trying to photograph an empty bridge near a junction of three main roads was almost impossible with cars coming from what seemed every direction. Although I stood for almost an hour, I think I managed only a handful of shots that were traffic free. Not sure what the monument was for as all the plaques had been removed.

I contacted the Bakewell Tourist Information office and they very kindly let me have more information on what I now know is "Cross's Folly".


Cross's Folly Bakewell

Cross's Folly on Station Road in Bakewell was built in the 19th century with money donated by Robert Cross to commemorate Bakewell having a water supply from nearby Wicksop Wood.

Cross's Folly was listed in 1974 and renovated in 2000 probably as a millennium project by the Bakewell Town Council with Lottery money.
