There were too many trees in the Forest
I woke up to something rather unusual this morning....... sunshine, that's bloody what. After weeks of grey cloud and rain, it was fabulous to finally get my share of the big warm yellow thing that normally hangs around in Australia and California.
I immediately hatched up a plan. It involved being outdoors and playing with gadgets, so it was almost as good as a 'Hot and Spicy' pizza from Dominos.
Yep, I decided I was going to take my new Canon S95 to nearby Bernwood Forest to play with the settings.
When I arrived clutching my camera, the sun was streaming through the trees even though there was a chill in air. I took several pictures before realising something; my subject matter was somewhat limited ...... to trees. In fact, all the pictures that I took looked like this one.......
After accidentally getting myself totally lost in the forest for over an hour and half (understandable given that the only landmarks are trees, and now I understand the Blair Witch Project), I finally navigated my way back to the car and decided to go somewhere more 'open' to try out my camera settings.
So I drove to a village called 'Brill', perched atop a large hill in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside. Brill is famous for its windmill, and I wanted to take pictures of that because it dates back to 1635AD, but it was so busy that I decided to drive to the outskirts of the village and take pictures of the panorama instead.
And this is what came out; loads of pictures of the same shot, but with different camera settings... (how exciting!)
I tell you, the amount of blog space that I giving to my Canon Powershot S95 camera, they should be paying me to review it (apart from the fact that I don't have any technical knowledge about it). But that is just picky.
