New to the site and would just like to say hello and WOW WHAT A SITE!!!!!!!!! I have been out of diving and photography for a number of years and slowly getting back into the swing of things. The articals and advise on this site is nothing short of fantasic. My old setup was a NIk III and Ike 150 strobe - scanning some of the old slides and will post my best (far short of the work I've seen here tho - LOL) later. New camera is a Nikon D60 and standard 35-70mm VR lens. Any and all comments are welcome and thanks in advance for your time.

Sorry for such a long intro but you guys (and gals) have me pumped!!

Long intro... you're joking aren't ya! That was short, some posters on here go on like their trying to re-write the bible or something....

Great to see ya online here, just make sure you keep postin', keep askin' and keep the fire burning...

Can you send me some of that gud ole Tennesse BBQ, or at least just tell me about those flavours! I hope to get down that way some time in my life to eat my way round!

have you ever heard of Smokestack Lightning? It was a book that went on to become a documentary about BBQ'd food!

Also check out the doco at Smokestack Lightning

Let me know what you think of the clip, if you like, order a copy. It's an amazing insight into real BBQ foods, real characters who are truly passionate about food with great music too!
