Posted:Hi All, you're forgiven if you don't recognise me because its not like I post on here a whole lot given all the other forums I am active on but we're going to start making a change I think. I thought I'd share a little of my weekend with you guys to begin...



I am a bit of a camera nerd, albiet with a lot less dough being spent on my equiptment than I would like unfortunately. Well for the weekend I went walking in the hills up behind my house to take some photographs and to while working along I noticed somethign shiny beside the path - A slightly scuffed up looking Canon Powershot A85, beats my Powershot A60 hands down!



I flicked through the photos and found that soemone had taken some amazing photos up there, must have been early morning or late afternoon judging by the fog and recent weather we've had. I thought I'd share them here.



side note: I'll be heading down to the Police Station to hand it in tomorrow after work and if no-one shows up to collect I will have a new camera and 500Mb CF card biggrin



Anyway, let me know what you think:

Posted:nice pictures, looks like a really beautiful place, im kinda worried about what happened to the person that camera belonged to confused very few people would simply forget their cameras in the woods,

Posted:Im almost hard pressed to believe that seal found this camera anywhere and all the pictures are unedited. some of the pictures definately have humanoid looking things in them and are all somewhat eerie in respects to lighting and fog. They just look too perfectly strange that I cant believe the story. Seems like a nice hoax is all.

If seal did actually find this camera then its an even better hoax smile

Nice story and pics either way.

Posted:hehehe - caught out already. They are the result of some very well done photoshopping and a great story. It was originally doen by one of the ultra creative guys over at http://forums.somethingawful.com
so credit where credit is due smile

Sorry for the hoax but I couldn't resist after getting hooked so well on the original posting of these and then watching the GTAForums guys go nuts over them.
