More hints of Spring

Monday 18th February 2013

I put the 100mm macro lens on the camera when I took the dogs over to Upton Heath this morning. I didn’t realise quite how windy it was though, so struggled to get any shots. I did spot this honeysuckle: growing wild and starting to shoot.

And I took the opportunity to bring some more colour to this blog by taking a photo of some of the gorse.

I’m pleased to say that, although still muddy in places, the Heath is starting to dry out. This was also the second walk where I tried out my new camera strap. I’ve bought a Black Rapid, RS-7 Curve to use when out walking. I’m tired of getting shoulder / neck ache from the camera, and of missing shots because it’s draped over my shoulder and gets caught on my coat/bag/arm as I try to quickly pull it into position. The strap was expensive, in my opinion, but I’m absolutely loving it.
