Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr keep that camera steady

I know it’s only down to -3°C here, but that’s cold for this part of the world. Yesterday morning I took the camera out as I walked the dogs before dawn; the harbour view was picturesque, but instead my unsteady hands produced this impressionistic image, which I quite like . . .

Anyway, this morning I took out the one-legged-tripod-thingy, but still my hands shook in the cold. But I did get this . . .

Worth getting up in the dark to see.

  1. Hi there. I was looking for the perfect picture for today’s blog and found it here. It’s the one of dawn over Wales from Ilfracombe and I live somewhere along that bit of blurry coastline you see in the distance. I hope you don’t mind that I used it – I credited your blog with a link.

    It’s a beautiful photo – Thanks 🙂
