Not having great weather since I got my FZ30 - it's been very grey and overcast this week, and I haven't had a lot of time - but I got out a bit yesterday and took this picture of a fishing trawler which was quite a long way out. This picture was taken at full optical zoom, cropped, resized, neat-imaged. Details aren't real sharp, but I was impressed that the name of the boat was readable as from where I stood, it looked like a 1/4" speck on lake Atlantic!

Too bad the weather didn't cooperate with you. Good shot considering the circumstances.

It's true. Overcast weather can offer interesting opportunities, but most of the times I am angry when these light conditions occur, for FZs and any also non UC cams, like sunny days.

Nice pic BTW

Thanks for the comments! Yeah, I'm ready for summertime (though I shouldn't complain - we get our share of sun and warm weather normally - just not this week, and next week is s'posed to be coldish as well.) But as I'm much more comfortable taking nature type shots and surfing pix, I'm sure looking forward to the sun and warmth again - got my polarizing filter sitting at ready!
