Time for a Stroll


Heron

I was feeling very fed up  last friday afternoon so on the spur of the moment , and believe me – I am not a ‘spontaneous’ person by any means,  I decided to take a stroll down to The Pond again.  It was a glorious, warm, sunny day to take advantage of ….

I felt well rewarded when I came across this Heron.  Usually I’ve just been able to make him out in the distance, across the other  side of the lake.  He was still a fair distance from me , as you can see from the second image, so I used the little zoom on my camera for this one – risking a bit of camera shake in the process.

With a little bit of tweaking in my Paintshop Pro, I think it’s turned out ok. Sometimes when I see all the wonderfully sharp close up pics taken by other photographers here, I lament my lack of ‘equipment’ and camera expertise. But even if I had them, physical limitations would prevent me using them I think.  I really must get my son to take me to Parks Camera shop in Burgess Hill so that I can talk to an ‘expert’ and try handling cameras!

Oh dear,  I fear I’m waffling a bit …. but truly, this is something that keeps cropping up for me and I never do anything about. I could leave the planet before I ever do !  Comments are always most welcome here [ NB. I’ve been trying to learn how to attract more ‘traffic’ to my blogs recently] , and also your constructive criticism of my photographic efforts.  I know there are  web sites and forums where you can submit your work, but I get defeated by the technical know how – ha ha – the attention span is decreasing with age  lol.  Till next time then ,   Eileen

Thought I’d throw in these as an afterthought ….
