Dunkeld Shot

Took about fifty pics over the weekend, and this was by far the best of them. In better times, I'd have had a tripod and remote release, but instead I just rested the camera on the wall of a bridge and hoped for the best.

Bit of photoshop to balance the lighting, but otherwise quite happy with this one.

Self Portrait

Off camera flash, fired using the remote. The background should be more black, but I'm standing a bit too close to the wall. Overall though, I'm pleased with this.

Sunset through the trees

Got a loan of a 17-35mm Canon lens at the moment, to make sure this is what I want for Christmas last year (!). The thing I love about wide angle lenses is what they do to clouds, but we've just not had the right weather since I got it.

I took it up to a local reservoir yesterday to try to get some sunset pics, but it was pretty cloudy so I gave up. Just as I got to the car, the sun broke through some trees, and I fired half a dozen shots off to see what came back. Best of the bunch by a long way...
