In the mean Time

I never really wanted to go digital so I'm takin this opportunity after the demise off my digital camera to go back to the old 35mm SLR. Not necessarily a good thing though, as all the shots I took with that were pretty crap! But hopefully I have learned enough from digital and bein able to see the shots as they were taken and what exposure etc works, to transfer that knowledge to the 35mm ha-ha! Don't hold your breath you might turn blue... might make a good shot though :)

If the first shots workout the way I hope it might/will even mean the purchase a negative scanner before another digital camera, I hope it does. In the mean time I'm being picky over the shots I take not just the bang, bang, bang, delete of the digi. So here is a shot from an even older digital camera, the zoom-less one the result of salt water.... er floodin! Hmm is there a pattern buildin up here do ya think?

Mar sin leat!

I hope you do not mind use of the informal version of the Gaelic for bye? This might be the last posting for a wee bit :( Due to the fact that the wind blew over tripod and camera into the brine! The first shot was the last taken just before it happened.



After a wee bit of drying out the camera did recover to produce these






but alas the corrosive effect of the salt water eventually took it's toll and the camera is knackered.

For the fun off it I might try and strip it down and clean it out, just for the fun I do not expect anything to come off it! I have thought on reverting to my old camera which was also damaged by the sea, but I do not like what I produce with it at the moment only having control of the ISO has it's limitations :) So that's two cameras and a mobile phone lost to Davy Jones in the past six months! I'm going to build a yacht next anyone fancy coming for a sail :))))))

So to all my readers tapadh leat (thanks) for reading hope to be back with a new camera soon, ! and if you are really unlucky I'll troll my archives :))

ps you won't get rid off me that easy I'll still visit the blogs I read to put in my tuppence-worth

Spring at the Old Mill

I would have done all the leafs honest but that would have spoiled a good wine ;)

The Fisherking

Hiked about an 8-10 mile round trip up the river Ayr today in search of kingfishers and otters. And saw my first ever kingfisher yeah!! Unfortunately no shots though... the damn things are the avian equivalent of Exocet missiles, one day though!!

No otters were spotted just their spore, (which i might post) sea otters are easier to spot but my shots of them are not worth the posting :(

Dark Seas

Through the Dunes

Saltyre

I just dodged the flag on this one just a wee bit as it was to dark.

Archway of the Warrior

I felt in a Bob the builder mood today. The build was the easy part, it only took 10 min! It took longer to sort out the overexposed sky which could not be avoided due to location.

This was my first attempt at an arch the angel I did about a year ago was easy in comparison, but I think I'll go for a bigger higher arch next.... glutton :)

Fill Your Boots

Why oh why does the best angle always mean the dramatic part of the wave always gets lost in the cloud ahhhh!

In this case I think the B&W shot saved the day again?
