Thank you Mustafa are there a lot dragonflies in your country?

Now that is sad break a lens but i think yours is easier to fix than Sams. top shot with it though. i would send it back to the maker something must be sticking inside. steve.

Erik van den Ham on July 25, 2009

Just what I did, I took it back and it has been sent back to Canon Steve. They told me it will take at least three weeks before I hear from it. Its older than a year so officially it is out of the guaranty period. But the consumer rights say such a thing should at least last longer than a year.

So hope Canon will help me out on this.

Greetz, Erik

Erik they should but i think i would not care just as ling as you get it back its like loosing a leg, like me creasing my board in the big waves after that it a bin job not fixable... Erik is a pleasure to catch up i must away for round two with my son but no photos as the waves are bigger today i should post my outfit to get the camera out in the water mostly home made and lateral thinking.. steve

Hello Erik, It has been nearly 30Months since I added this photo to my favourites.

I think now is the time to add you to one of my favourite Photographers...G*... having visited your gallery And finding it most interesting and inspiring.

Hoping one day I shall be able to make pictures of the same quality.

I wish you and your loved ones Bonne Anneé 2012.

Thanks Ray time flies..... just as this dragonfly can! Thanks a lot for the honor of adding my gallery and your kind words. I'm pretty sure you can take pictures like this. All you need is time the animals and a bit of luck and of course a camera.

Have a great year too, Erik
