|The day began bright and early at 9am (to the displeasure
of some!). Once we were eventually gathered we discussed our aims
for the day and the protection of our precious digicams, involving a lot
of clingfilm and selotape. Some old fashioned exposed film was
pressed into service to provide infra red filters - I knew it was useful
After we were finally prepared we went to OFDII where we made our way
to Gnome Passage. Here was our first challenge, a large scale cave
and making the kit work. We then moved on to other parts of OFD II
for some smaller scale work.
Upon returning the moment of truth arrived and we could see the
pictures nice and large on the PC - some were now convinced that digital
was the way to go, while others remained sceptial!
Most of us managed to rise early again on Sunday and continued the
course in OFD I. The streamway was now only 'sporting' so we took
plenty of shots in there along with other parts of the cave, producing I
think some rather good pictures.
