From the Volga's shore
For a long time, I wanted to visit Korcheva tract - place, where Korcheva town was. In the 30th years during creation of Ivankovskoe reservoir the town was evicted and demolished, but was not fully flooded. It’s written that there are the only building. I wanted to see, to reveal it.
In the warm, sunny day we rode there - just 10 km and we stopped for a breakfast nearly. Because my boots were wet, I was carelessly going near the swampy shore of the reservoir – it was constantly knee-deep. I made this shot, step aside and fell into the water, entangled in the reed.
Camera is flooded, mood is nasty, so, even didn't found Korchva, we continued out way.

Nikon D70 после затопления выжил, сама свидетель, а Canon 350D как себя чувствует?

Nikolay Cherkasov Nikolay Cherkasov #3 Sat 24 Feb 2007 13:37

350D тоже живёхонький только матрицу пришлось мыть + немного подржавел внутри. Как и положено, батарейки я все выдернул. А что самое неприятное - пентапризма всё запачкалась - так почистить и не сумел.
А, вот, рыбакитовый объектив сдох. Я его разобрал полностью, достал всё стёклышки и тёр их салфеткой для чистки матриц (то есть, фильтров) - всё равно, грязно и контраст и разрешение вообще никакое.
Но даже в мокром состоянии он сумел сфотографировать капельки воды внутри.

oh.. so nice image you made.. but i am sorry for the camera.. i saw that image with drops you linked.. and translated how it is now
i hope it will "recover"..

Nikolay Cherkasov Nikolay Cherkasov #7 Sat 24 Feb 2007 20:38

No it, unlikely, will recover:
I`ve ordered new lens about two weeks before but received it only in november (that's becuse I wanted to save a lot of money for transportation).
So, I now have much,much better 17-40 lens instead of old 18-55. Camera is OK - just dusty in the viewfinder, but matrix is nerly clean.
