Experimenting with the Camera

Experimenting with the Camera

Was out with the 70D yesterday and did some experimenting with it. Took this one of a flower at Whalley Abbey with the EF85mm 1.8 lens. Interesting result.

Found in Namibia in 1908

Meteorite on display at Tatton Park in Cheshire. The meteorite was found near the town of Gibeon (in Namibia Southwest Africa) in 1908. The meteorite on show is actually a section from a number of fragments that fell to earth around Gibeon. The larger meteorite is known as the Gibeon Meteorite and the section you see at Tatton is a part of it. The meteorite is made from iron and is a hefty chunk to say the least.

The photo taken was using the available light as flash cannot be used in the house at Tatton Park.

The Shores of Loch Lomond

Near Luss

Near Luss

Photograph taken on the shores of Loch Lomond taken not too far from the village of Luss on the Loch. I love this place. A beautiful place to visit with ‘The Trossachs’ providing the perfect background canvass.

Blue was the loch, the clouds were gone,
Ben-Lomond in his glory shone,
When, Luss, I left thee; when the breeze
Bore me from thy silver sands,

The fairy-isles fled far away;
That with its woods and uplands green,
Where shepherd-huts are dimly seen,
And songs are heard at close of day.

(Samuel Rogers, Poems, London 1834, p.203.)
