Right after being out on so many occasions with Matt last year hunting for ideas for his 365, I thought i would join in the spirit of things this year and give this a go myself!

Here is my 1st of the challenge, it was taken early this morning on a Run upto East Mids Airport, after a meesly 2 hours Kip(y)

This was stunning on the back of your camera and even more so now when viewed on here (y) I'm now even more angry at myself for still having the settings from the previous night dialed in :banghead: :annoyed: :sulk:

We can be hunting together again on a number of occasions this year too (y)

I like the sky!, the plane is well caught but distracts from the sky for me.
The idea behind the photo was to capture the plane as it crossed the opening between the clouds, which i managed!, But i do agree the sky is stunning and would look great all by itself too, I get quiet alot of nice sunsets/rises around by me so keep a look out for when i post one next time, without the plane:LOL:(y)

I recently aquired this old camera from a job lot from the good old E-bay, and if it can get it up and running hope to include some actual photos from it in this challenge

A visit on the way to work, to the coventry canal basin, which is somewhat of a desolate place these days, originally re-designed to accomodate many bars and restaurants, is now just home to a few remaining small art and craft businesses.

Not what i had originally taken for todays photo, but when this happy chappy began screaming at me to delete all photos, and that cameras are products of satan.
i thought as way of punishment i would let him feature in my 366 challenge

Almost didnt make todays photo, it was my first day off work since the start of the challenge, and have not stopped all day, but just in the nick of time resorted to a simple macro of a £2 coin!:cool:

I'd very much be tempted to take out the mast from the roof line especially since it looks like you've clipped a little from the time :thinking:

Matt
Think i may just do that, i was unsure at the time but just couldnt get wide enough to get it all fitting in nicely(y)
