Corsica

A week in North Corsica with friends Nigel and Jean. Flight on Flybe from Birmingham to Bastia

Speloncato

Stayed in Maison les Calanches, a superb property on the edge of Speloncato which was apparently previously owned by author Ian Rankin.  (very bottom left house of village – in centre of photo above) This overlooked the valley towards the sea. Each day red kites flew gracefully over our heads. Also saw martins, woodpeckers, various brown things, blackcaps, and on the wildlife front a pair of boars passed by on out last night.

Panasonic Lumix LX3 launch – Monoco

Panasonic launched their compact Panasonic Lumix LX3 in Monaco, France.  I flew Leeds Bradford to Nice on Flight LS24. We stayed in the Fairmont, 12 Avenue Des Spelugues, Monte Carlom, Monaco 98000

They organised a walking tour of Monaco and a photo shoot on the harbour with a model and vintage car and two models on a scooter.

The LX3 performed really well. Sadly I lost some of my best pics taken with it due to a drive / folder error. No idea where they vanished, but they also disappeared from the back up – as if by magic!
