Being made out of some resin material, these are quite unsubstantial and really not good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected delight, 17 Jun. 2016
This book is a delight. Initially I doubted it was possible to write entertainingly about cold and only accessed a sample Kindle download. But I was soon hooked, even when the author got into the more detailed catalogue section of UK cols. It is meticulously researched, constantly engaging and perhaps the best cycling related book, I have read in ages. Well done Graham.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's clear that the best takes actually appeared on the original albums, 17 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's clear that the best takes actually appeared on the original albums, but still a delight to see the work in progress of a man in one of his most creative periods. Still find The Bootleg Series 1-3 to be the most enthralling collection though.

5.0 out of 5 stars but great for planning some very special adeventures, 30 Jun. 2015
Lovely book with some inspiring walks to the more remote places on the islands where you can still be sure of splendid isolation. Don't think I'd ever carry it with me, but great for planning some very special adeventures .

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely the best travel tripod, 19 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While I wouldn't use this for a main tripod, it is a superb travel tripod. It is ridiculously light, collapses to about 31cm in length and holds 5-6kg remarkably well. I doubt if it would support a heavy telephoto lens that well, but it is totally adequate for heavy DSLR with a 24-70mm lens and a 200mm prime lens. Don't be put off by the screw fittings either as they can be undone in a single movement of the hand. It even gets low enough for macro shots, - an excellent piece of kit that is very well made.

Tamrac 5550 Adventure 10 Backpack - Grey

5.0 out of 5 stars Very practical camera bag, 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Capable of carrying a full sized DSLR with a big 70-200 lens, 3 or 4 other lenses, all your filters and your own person belongings, this is a really great bag. Only downside is it's not really suited to carrying a big tripod, but OK with a smaller travel tripod

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with Useful Information, 27 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What's not too like? This is a stunningly good book that any photographer wanting to find their way around the Lake District will come back to time and time again. It is jam packed with information about locations and techniques and lots of Stuart's fine photographs to give us all something to aspire to.

The Leipzig Affair
The Leipzig Affair
by Fiona Rintoul
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the style and will look out for her next, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Leipzig Affair (Paperback)
Was carried along by the quality of the writing rather than the storyline. The author writes convincingly, weaving things she obvious knows about - academia, East Germany and the financial services - into a credible plot. Love the style and will look out for her next.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much multi-tasking, 7 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Country Mile (Audio CD)
After a brilliant first album, A Larum, Johnny seems to be on a slippery slope to mediocrity - still a great voice, but the songs sound like there has not been enough effort in the writing. Perhaps Johnny should decide whether he's going to be an actor, a model or a singer/song writer and not spread himself so thinly as it shows.
