safe from harm redux

Today I received the replacement for my potential-fire-hazard camera battery. A recall had been initiated for certain batch numbers and one of my batteries was in the affected range. I don't mind going through the process because it means I get a new fresh battery, plus the faulty EN-EL3 batteries are being swapped for the newer EN-EL3e model which has a larger capacity.

Last week I decided it was time to get a nice tripod; a Manfrotto to replace the ill-suited video tripod I've been using. It was an expensive purchase but not as expensive as it could have been and it'll be another month and a half before I receive it (which is still quicker than the 3 month wait it could have been).

Meanwhile there's a chance that tomorrow I'll be going over to Fraser Island again. There are thunderstorms forecast, which could make it an entertaining trip...
