Selfie Stick

I have been meaning to get back to this location for quite sometime, under the right conditions of course. It was only when I looked at the date when I went here last time did I realise that its been 1 year and 6 days, sheesh, time goes waay too fast!

This is the shot from last time:

and I vowed to go back and plant myself next to that fisherman's stick of death 😉

+Kitten KaboodleInc , this one is for you, no Britney boobies and pole dancing was a little difficult 'cause it was so fing cold.

A h/t goes out to +Phottix, i have the Aion wireless remote which at the time seemed expensive, however its usefulness and also its convenience has by far paid for itself. The only pain in the rear thing is when I stick it in my pocket and accidentally bump it I end up with all these random shots at the end of the day ;). Here i triggered the shot from about 20 odd metres away..

So, it was around dawn, i watched the waves for a while, picked my interval and made a dash for the stick, dodging the incoming wave, barnacles, slippery ass rocks and the golf ball from the nearby golf course.. ..yes whoever that ball belonged, your a freaking terrible shot, give it away… 😉

and there it is, single shot, no composite funny-buggers here, no added waves and no photochopping my ass in 😉

Stick of death -> check.

  1. Apologies for the query here but the Aion wireless remote – is it reliable, in that it triggers every time? I've been using a Pixel TW282 for years. Worked very well but has started giving trouble with buttons missing shots and sticking. I see it takes AAA batteries on both receiver and transmitter. Do they last long?

    I find the Aion pretty good, I had trouble at first with the D7000, sometimes it would not take the shot – then I realised that you need to half press the shutter button on the remote to let the camera focus, just like you do on the camera 😉 this is quite handy.
    All in all I reckon its worth the money, the battery life is pretty awesome, I have had it for yonks now (i used it in the previous photo last year) and only replaced the batteries twice or three times.. i also tend to accidentally leave it on when putting it away 🙂
    hth.
