Still trying to get my head around Lightroom 5 so haven’t posted for a while, still not completely sold on it, it’s good, but i’m not.
I like the lens correction feature when you can alter the perspective of the shot to make it look like you were standing more in front of the subject rather than below it, and of course the level feature, even though I have a level in my view finder I still have trouble getting a level shot, although I think this was down to to many Painkillers, that’s the drink not the pills.
And if you fancy one yourself here is how to make it.
Painkiller is a rum cocktail trademarked by Pusser’s Rum, their signature drink. The Painkiller® is a blend of Pusser’s Rum with 4 parts pineapple juice, 1 part cream of coconut and 1 part orange juice, well shaken and served over the rocks with a generous amount of fresh nutmeg on top. It may be made with either two, three or four ounces of Pusser’s dark rum.
Just got back from another successful rig move, this one was a Jack-up out from Norwich, it first tried to move early January but could not due to the weather, after another two attempts failed due to weather again we finally got the weather window we needed, once the legs were up and water tight integrity confirmed we were on our way, a two day tow and we were at the standby location, a couple of days WOW (Waiting On Weather) here until another weather window saw us move to final location, we used sonar and GPS to locate our exact position and pinned the legs onto the three pre-installed gravel mats, three days of pre-load, this is filling the hull with water when it is a couple of feet out of the water so we get maximum weight on each leg, once happy we lift the rig to its working height, jump on a helicopter and are home for tea and biscuits.
Now I suppose you want some photos of it, sorry but due to restrictions imposed by my employer I can’t, but I am working on it.
However here are some from the British Virgin Islands, a wildlife theme this time.
Well what can I say, two weeks in paradise, Thanks to both of you is a good start (you know who you are).
Paradise is an understatement I think, not only does the BVI look fantastic, the people are great, the food is great, the snorkelling is great and the sailing is great, did I mention the food? Shopping is not great, which is why I liked it so much, I hate shopping. Oh and the rum cocktails are to die for. Beaches are ok if not a little crowded, I mean check this one out.
We did have the odd day that reminded us of home. When the rain came it was torrential but only lasted a couple of minutes, not even worth getting out of the pool for.
Nights were cool and peaceful, the only problem I had was sleeping with all the doors open and the light of the moon keeping me awake.
