Learning Curve

Finding my way round my camera is definitely a learning curve - and I still haven't succeeded yet, but hopefully I'm getting there!

Curve is the word today over on HSMSHS today. Nature doesn't really 'do' straight lines, so finding curves in my garden is relatively easy. Here are the opening leaves and buds on one of the Silver Birches, taken a few weeks ago.

I took this shot late last night and although it's been photoshopped to pick out the details a bit, the colours are true. However, I had to crank up the ISO, so it's also a bit noisy.

I'm hoping to persuade Tim to drive me to Slain's Castle today, for a bit of a photo session. For those who don't know, Slain's Castle is just south of Peterhead on the NE coast of Scotland and it was said to have given Bram Stoker the inspiration to write 'Dracula'.

Hopefully, photos later!
