WPC: Reward

Moon 26 February 2015

Good morning from a cool and foggy Hastings morning.

This week our prompt from The Daily Post is reward.  I have always admired those who could take good photos of the moon.  My other cameras just didn’t do the trick.  I don’t own a tripod so all my attempts were blurry or the moon was just a speck on the photo.  So it was a lovely reward this week to find that my new camera zoomed right up close and the moon is a decent size.  And the details are so clear despite the fact it was  hand held.  I did lean up against the side of the house to steady me.  There are a few duds but the rewards are great when I actually did get it right. And for once no editing.

Weekly Pet Share

Thrush (800x618)

Michelle has changed her pet challenge to Weekly Pet share this week.

I never found my lost camera.  It is annoying as I also lost 4 memory cards, another small camera and the bag.  I felt lost without it.

So yesterday I went out and brought the best camera that I could afford.  It was a choice between a camera and a sofa.  No choice really.  So now I am the proud owner of a Nikon Coolpix P600.  What a difference to my old camera.  So responsive and fast.  When I got home I saw the price on the box – $250  cheaper than I brought it for – I was meant to have it then.  I also got the plum coloured one.  It is smaller and lighter than my old camera and fits smugly into my hand.  So guess what I have been doing – yup, making up for lost time.

The zoom on this is great.  There is a small dial on the right that operates it which I like.  This photo was taken at maximum zoom of a thrush on the top of the house next door.  I am totally a happy chappy now.
