26 July, 2014 - Poor visibility so just a local potter around

A very warm and humid day lay ahead and so I was up at Rochester Airport early hoping to have a quick jolly down to the kent coast and back. Alas as soon as I climbed up to a 1000ft and looked east I knew it wasn't going to happen. There was a wall of low cloud and haze where I wanted to go. Not to be put off completely I decided to stick local. It had been 4 weeks since I last flew so I really wanted to just blow some cobwebs off anyway.

I also tried out a new lens on the Garmin Virb camera I recently purchased. This is a lens which removes the flickering on the film caused by the aeroplanes prop. You can see it makes a big difference in the video compared to the earlier video clips. The lens cost me £39.99 and is freely available from the internet. It's a shame its not a simple clip on device as you have to replace the old one. However, it only takes 5 minutes and you get a basic DIY kit with your purchase to help you. This includes a rubber ring, screwdriver, screws and of course the replacement lens.
