As we were at a loose end and the people i useually go out with have spent the best part of 2 weeks underground at gaping gill, we decided to spend some time above ground.

Dave had been after abbing malham cove for a couple of years, i had seen it on TV but had never been, so we decided to go and have a look.

Malham Cove is a 260ft rock face in yorkshire just north or Malham.

where we abbed from was about 245ft, and while 245ft doesnt sound that high, it looks a lot higher than i expected it to, long decents look a lot worse in daylight lol.

all was fairly uneventfull appart from the rediculas wind once you get over the edge, the first 20ft was against the wall, then you are free hanging the rest of the way, passing fairly close to another ledge 3/4 of the way down which was full of climbers.

when i got to the bottom, there was a good 50 people stood watching who all clapped and cheared when i touched down, kind of made me feel special, to a took a bow :lol:

if you bother tolook at the pics, you may have tolook quite hard tospot the people, they look like dots.

Ian, i got a 10-24 when I got a new camera.

Joel, Yeh New camera, I was having a mare though, couldn't find the buttons and I needed much quicker shutter speeds than I'm used to, plus I'm not used to taking pictures in daylight

i went with the tamron SP Di2

it's the cheapest sony fit wide angle available, while the sigma is supposed to be better, the tamron gets better reviews than the actual sony lens, so middle quality, cheapest price.

to be fair it isnt bad once you get over F8, it's really soft around the edges below that.

I'm not that impressed with the Sigma to be honest, it's like a lottery with the quality of the one you get. People in the middle are long, and things at the side are short and squashed. Quite a bit of distortion.

I think there is a way to fix it photoshop, but i haven't found the setting yet.

Morrisey from NWEX uses a Tokina 12-20ish and it produces really nice shots underground. It scored highly in the reviews for low light performance.

If you shoot in raw and use the photoshop raw plugin, you simpally download the lens profile from the photoshop website, then select the auto fix and lens used.

it works quite well, my 18mm kit lens that i use underground has really bad CA, the auto fix sorts it out
