At last a break from my hectic work schedule and an opportunity to spend time with my loved ones, chill out and get the trusty Nikon D80 out and take some photographs.
It’s been a while, and I have a lot to relearn.
Half the fun is just messing about – photographing anything and everything and looking at what works and what doesn’t.
I’ve never used Photoshop – but I’ve decided at 61 it’s about time I did and have just invested in a copy.
I also want to explore the use of different lenses and filters to see what can be achieved before any manipulation via software.
So here’s a view of Eilean Donan Castle very popular on Shortbread tins – if you have never visited – add it to your bucket list.
I was very pleased with the reflection and the underwater detail which would probably have been much easier to achieve with a polarising filter – perhaps my next purchase.
