Playing with pictures

February 21, 2013

I have been very busy so far this year. I have a new camera and I have treated myself to Lightroom 4 to edit the pics. I'm still learning how to use it but here are the first two pics that I've played with.

I'm also working on an eBook celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who in haiku. My working title for it is Fifty, Eleven, Seventeen (50 years, 11 Doctors and 17 syllables). There will be at least one haiku for each story with some other haiku for returning monsters, companions and a narrative of the history of the show. I hope I'll get it done in time for the 50th anniversary this November.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope you'll enjoy the pics.

Linlithgow ~ a test run

July 21, 2011

A palace with an unusual spire

I treated myself to a new camera and went for a walk in the woods [watch this space] but before I had a full day to play with my new camera, I gave it a test run at Linlithgow.

A welcome sight

I was welcomed by the sight of this swan swimming on the lake along with some other feathered friends which allowed me to play with the panoramic setting on the camera…

An experiment with the panoramic setting

I also saw a duck having a drink…

A thirsty duck

A swan having a preen…

Elegant swan

A cygnet having a swim…

A fluffy youngster

A proud parent and cygnet spending some time together…

Swimming at twilight

And a last view of the Palace spire…
