Photography Trip

During the holidays, we made a special photography trip without the dogs. I took a lot of photos.

I checked my camera settings with bird action shots in mind, ISO was on auto, TV set to priority, and I even remembered to check my focal point.

Hello 2017

Guilderton Beach

Holidays are over and I am finding it hard to get back into the swing of things.

The last couple of months of 2016 were rather crazy, raising awareness of the HDML 1321 historic value followed by a nasty virus that seemed to last forever and I still hadn't quite shaken off by the end of the year. Through all of that Geri the Wonder Dog was undergoing chemo and the new addition to our fur-family kept us on our toes. There was even more going on in the background which I will be telling you about very soon.

Much needed holidays were upon me before I had a chance to properly farewell the year or let you all know I would be on a break for a couple of weeks.

But not to worry. I'm back!
