I went out yesterday with my camera as I wanted to take photos of the colours of the heather that is out all over the hills at the moment. Shetland is stunning.
I didn’t do very well and was disappointed with the results. I just hadn’t “captured” it and I wish I could bottle the smell too. It is heavenly.
So I went home and took a photo of the cat instead. We can all play “Let’s count the chins!”
So, today, armed with my camera, a different lens, a tripod (this could make the difference), a remote thingy and then back into the house for a memory card (duh), I went back out to have another shot. I also Googled “how to take photos like National Geographic” and jotted down the settings required for landscapes.
Armed with information and now possibly dangerous, I took these photos.
I was now bored of heather and diversified.
Not exactly National Geographic standard, but I tried and the midges came out, so I ran away home!
