Just Got To Europe...

Mon Nov 23, 2009 12:10 am

...and is it always this cloudy? lol

Been here about a month in south western Germany, seen the sun a handful of times. Now I know how spoiled I was back in the states with clear sunny days all the time!

Look forward to shooting around Europe for the next few years...just look for the out of place noob with a humble D60.  Smile

Not necessarily the place to be during that time of the year if you want to see the sun!  Wink

Hey you can get a D200 real cheap  biggrin 

Have a good time and happy spotting. I am sure you will get hassled a lot less and find real low fences!

Make sure you get yourself out to the ultimate European photography airports - AMS, FRA, DUS, MAN and LHR are generally considered the best.

If you ever make it to MAN give me a shout and I'll also show you BHX and EMA.

Oh, and yes, it always rains, especially here in the UK! I've been away for just over a week but I hear the sun hasn't shone at all!

best regards

this actually is one of the better places to see the sun from time to time. You are lucky that you did not end up in the northern part Big grin Big grin

If you were spotting around DUB today, you would have probably flown alongside the aircrafts!! There was so much wind today that planes have been diverted to SNN.

The weather here in Holland is also not the best, rather depressing! Still waiting for that nice winter weather, cold but blue skies!!
cheers

Diverted as far as MAN from DUB today - EY and DL div's this morning due wind in Ireland. Very gusty and rainy at MAN today too, although the sun shone nicely for half-an-hour while the new QR 772LR went out!
