Don’t get caught Short…

No nothing quite like that, i am talking about battery loss out in the field…

For whatever reason, i got caught with a totally flat set of batteries, never really happened before, but like a good boy scout i was prepared, i got a signal, and whilst digging it out the signal disappeared, it took a few minutes to realise i got a set of defunct batteries…

With the problem now solved i hunted out my spare battery pack, which i carry for such occasions, these batteries never go out of date, as when i change the battery (-normally-) the spare pack batteries get used, whilst the new ones go to replacing those from the pack, so the battery pack always gets replenished & stays fresh…

There seems to be a random photo of the sky, but I’ve not taken a shot of the sky, in those photos somewhere is a little black dot, it is a second world war fighter plane, which had just taken off from Earls Colne Airfield, doing its weekly circuit and bumps ! i have managed to enlarge it sufficiently, its a Harvard with navy written on the side, i think it’s an American prop-job…

My field camera is brilliant for small shots, but to get a closeup shot of the plane, two things came into play, one; me not being quick enough and two; the camera, but I’m not complaining, i only use the camera for field use, and it does take a battering, plus its good enough for me…

as you can see the spare battery holder has a card inside, which is green on one side for good battery & red on the other for dead batteries…easy to remember, now all i have to do is dispose of the old ones & replace them with new batteries…
at the end of the day “-red sky at night, shepherd’s delight-“
