So … out I went, armed with a freshly-charged battery in the Nikon and an empty 4GB card (my Scottish Photojournalist Lassie had warned me that having a number of small-capacity cards was a wise precaution … in the case of one’s only large-capacity card becoming corrupted, it is better to have a few small-capacity cards as a fall-back position, so to speak.), and I was immediately greeted by an almost-too-cool breeze and some delightfully warm sunshine. I began shooting almost immediately:
Now, I must caution you that the breeze was one of those that REALLY interferes with photography, so any flaws that you find in the way of sharpness and /or composition are to be viewed in that light. But I moved in and started shooting … here are the results:
