  1. Hi all, I've just left approximately 150k people enjoying a very sweltering Bedford River festival. From the safety of my home I'm looking at that system approaching Bicester and wondering if it will track north, south, die out or smash into all those lovely people! There appears to be a corridor of 1800kj cape and 6.5li so wondering if that will play a part. What do the experts think? Thanks in advance.
  2. Disappointing night here but it looks like many got one hell of a show which is great. Hopefully this afternoon, evening will deliver the goods here. I managed just a couple of shots of the Milton Keynes/Northampton system around midnight looking West from Bedford and that was it! Not the greatest but i like the cloud structures. Thrilled that the my pic was used on the Site News though. http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=news;storyid=6025;sess=

  4. Shoot in RAW if you can (to fix exposure later) and try F8 ISO100 and experiment with the exposure (10-20 secs depending of ambient light and any foreground lights etc) you also need to account for how close the storm is. further away needs more light etc. Hope this helps. PS focus on manual and try and find a light or similar in the distance to focus on, just back from infinity.

  7. Woken up around 3.00am with a massive strike, just managed to get a couple of shots before it died out. Been rumbling on for most of the morning here. Looking forward to the main event later!

  9. I've just read (had to re-read it 3 time to check) that AIG has reported losses of $61.7bn for the last 3 months of 2008 alone! Then they have had another $30bn of government input bringing their total alone to $180bn. I'm certainly no economist but that must be tantamount to flushing tax payers $'s down the pan surely ?? I can not see how any business haemorrhaging those kind of losses at the relative begining of a downturn, recession or depression. I cannot see how it can be sustainable. Can someone explain?
  10. DOW futures is showing an expected open of 6931, the first time opened below 7000 for 12 years. I suspect this is an important physcological and financial barrier. Further big drops on the way this week.
  11. Oh my!.......still holding my breath...... http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif EDIT - all that breath holding must have worked...
