It's not my photo, but amazing and well worth sharing.
Goodness knows what type of camera this guy owns, but it must be top of the range!

The first one is from a hike with my younger son. The second one is from another hike and the third one was the view from our first house that my husband and I bought together. :)

I'm proud of the next one for the simple reason that it's a 1 second hand held exposure - took 5 goes, and holding breath like mad! Noise Ninja reduced noise from 1600 asa shot:



Below, the way to the River, near my parents' house.



The next one was taken in Oxford's Natutal History Museum, somewhere I hadn't been since I was about 8, to draw Dinosaurs with my school. Serious nostalgia trip! It's a wonderful buidling - looks like a railway station, and smells of mothballs!



Back soon with pics from Spain!

I'm really enjoying the photos! Keep 'em coming! :)

I don't spend much time shooting them at all! Just see something I like and reel off a few shots. Whenever I try to improve on the first take, by shooting the same thing several times, it's always the first that is the best!

Some shots I do play around with later in photoshop or, now, Aperture. With this one for example, which I took in the park earlier, I boosted the colour and contrast - took about a minute of fiddling:

Maybe I'm just mean, but I would have loved to have taken a second photo after standing up and saying... "Kids, you know what, I'm not hungry, let's go".

I love that pine tree! It reminds me of a classical Japanese watercolor.
