Once again, cracking pictures and and enjoyable read. I may have to invest in one of these intervalometer things :D You must have a fairly lightweight tripod too.

I've got a couple of tripods, depends on the conditions. I use a Velbon V-Pod in summer, and then switch to an old Velbon Ultra Luxi when I need more stability.
If you have a look on ebay for the phrase 'timer remote shutter release' you'll have your choice of intervalometers for not a lot of money...

It's a Laser Photon Elite.

Looks of people complain about the room in it, but I'm 6'4" and fit in it just fine!

Thank you, it's much appreciated. You'd be surprised what you could do with an old Kodak, so don't be so hasty!

Thanks, I'll have a good look. I've got a remote release but it's a basic cable one which only stretches so far. My tripod weighs a ton so I'll wait until I'm guaranteed some good weather before lugging it up.
