Tuesday 09/10/12

Got at the park for half 9, Nemesis breaks down, joy :( at Least I am at the front of the front row queue!

Finally got 1 front row seat ride, headed to Air, then sat and watched ripsaw for a short while, it was running a pretty interesting ride cycle to be honest! Gonna chill and take a few photos round forbidden valley for a bit before heading to dark forest...

Just done Rita and queuing up for Th13teen, first actual queue so far.

Spent a while hanging out in X Sector, yes that is a pretty big hole!!! Saw a few other peeps taking pictures of Sw7 also, no idea who they were though....

All put the photos up tomorrow night, as my computer is having overheating issues for some reason with all the photo processing from today!!!

Thought when exiting The Smiler - "Which way is up?"

Hi, what are the queue times like today? I'm heading up tomorrow so it should hopefully give me some idea of what to expect!

Got a picture of the Frog Hopper, it was there.

Also queues are almost non existent today, longest was Th13teen which was about 5 mins if that... Oblivion was only loading one shuttle at a time...

Will post pictures later when I get home...

Camera is a Canon 450D, photos were taken with a selection of lenses, most were actually taken with my Prime 50mm lens, however some of the others were taken with a 70mm-300mm TeleZoom Lens or the standard 18mm-55mm lens.

I haven't finished processing the others yet, it took me all night just to do the 40 you see before you, I do have a Photobucket account, but am thinking about migrating over to FlickR or something similar.

You will also be able to find them on my website in the next day or two www.apsphotography.co.uk
