I seem to have spent all week sharing photos of bluebells, this is the perfect time to capture them and they aren't around for long.
Recently I have noticed that some non-photo related posts are being added to the linky. Although these are great posts they are not in keeping with the theme of the linky therefore any reviews, recipes or posts with 5+ photos will be removed.

Handmade 90mm f/2.8 Lens

Have a watch of the video to see how he did it and the sample images. I was mighty impressed with the quality of photos, I couldn't see how much he spent making it but it was a lot cheaper than buying one.
