 By the way, snake was alive when I took these. It was in the barn next to where Mitch was working on his car. Its gone now…

Hiding in plain sight

Found this little guy/girl in our front yard tonight.

Didn’t seem concerned as I moved around to get it from all angles.

B&W Challenge

Those who use Facebook would have seen a challenge going around where people are asked to post 5 B&W photos over 5 days.

I must admit that turning colour pics that I like into B&W has never appealed to me but I know many that do.

I’ve been asked to “rise to the challenge”. Here are the five days.

FYRLYT update – 2 years later

It’s been 2 years since I posted about FYRLYT driving lights.
Given it appears to be the most searched page on this site it’s probably time for an update.

Ive added the update to the bottom of the original page at: FYRLYT Article

**UPDATE** September 2014
So, after 2 years of hanging off the front of the Patrol how have they performed?
Pardon the pun – brilliantly!
The mounts are rock solid, the lenses have survived and the original globes are still going strong.
The light output is awesome, the lack of glare is welcome and maintenance free reliability is perfect. They just WORK.
Originally I ran them as one spot and one spread but the light output is so good I now run both as spread beams.
Better than HID? Maybe, but more importantly they are reliable and instantly come on.
Better than an LED light bar? Don’t know, but their range and spread is more than adequate.
Worth the money? For me, yes, as the quality and reliability (sorry to harp on that) make them a worthwhile addition.

As always, my opinion only and all thoughts and comments are welcome.
No affiliation, just a happy customer.


My new Photo Gallery

Have (finally) got my photo collection sorted and uploaded at http://photos.touring4x4.com/
Please take a look around and all feedback on the good, bad and ugly is welcome!
While photos can be purchased through this site (eventually) I’m quite happy for people to just look and enjoy.

Here’s a sample.
