So I intended on getting some posts up over the holiday period but time seems to have whizzed by and I didn't even get the chance to catch up with my favourite blogs let alone write anything on mine...enough whining....it's a brand new year and what will be will be. I will get caught up with things and plod on at a pace which makes me happy therefore always enjoying my blog and garden and the other bogs I follow too!!
So Christmas and New Year were both nice. spent with family and friends in a quiet and laid back manner, just the way I like it. I got some lovely gifts. Some garden related, some bee related and some just 'me' related. I was very happy with everything anyway and will share one of then with you today and then the others with you over the next week.
So the gift I'm going to share with you today was what my Hubby bought me...a new camera!!! In all honesty I knew I was getting it and exactly which one as I did a lot of research into getting a camera I would be happy with. I loved my old camera but I have had it for a lot of years and it just isn't working right any more.
So the new camera I have is this....
|Canon PowerShot SX240 HS|
Of course I have been playing around plenty with it and it has produced some cracking shots...a few of which I will share with you now...
This is a close up taken of the grain on the side of our shed...the amazing thing is that I actually stood in my kitchen to take this and zoomed through the kitchen and conservatory past the windows and into the garden!!
Just a random photo of some berries whilst I was walking Trojan over the fields. I love the clarity of the close up and have always envied people who have been able to take shots like these!!
And finally this was taken in the early hours of the morning...I have always wanted to take great shots of the moon...I wouldn't say this is great but I am still learning...I was pretty pleased with the way it came out though!!
So those are just a few of the shots that I have taken...I have taken so many I think I should start another blog just to show them off!! The only downside to the camera...and bare in mind this is a personal thing, there is no viewfinder...only the screen on the back to look at. It is a good size screen I just think you are more stable when using a viewfinder...non the less I will get used to it and it was a fantastic price.
So with this in mind I should be able to take some great photos on the allotment this year to share with you all....can't wait for the weather to be frosty...or snowy...or dew in the morning...anything but this horrible grey with strong gusty winds!!
Oh...just one more photo then...
Hope you all had a great Christmas and wishing you all the best for the upcoming year.
