Camera Talk 2020

I thought I'd update the camera thread, albeit a bit late, in case anyone wants to add photos of other subjects. We have a garden gallery, wildlife and insect threads, and this provides a place for anything else, as well as any useful info for people who want to take better photos or get info on cameras. I'm afraid I can't offer much on that score  ;)
Link back to the old thread too

I haven't walked much since last year, but have been back out this week
A few pix from revisited hills.

Some ice on little pools and lochans on Ben Donich last week


Heading up The Brack's north side yesterday, the cloud was lifting everywhere



Summit views : north-ish to the Arrochar hills

and west to Beinn Bheula


Add pix of your trips, holidays and local buildings. We love to see them  :)

    Hope you broke the ice and had a little dip.
    Did they tear it out with talons of steel
    And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel?
    And washed it away as if it wasn't real?

    You must feel so good up there - free as a bird above the clouds

    It would certainly be easier to have wings @steveTu ;)

    Not the biggest, but at least my thighs aren't complaining today like they did last week.  ;)

    Good to see your photos again @Fairygirl.

    I'm afraid I can't join in as I've hardly been anywhere recently because of Covid  :/

    We had a strange rainbow this evening - odd sections of colour showing through cloud before it was finally revealed as a full rainbow.


    While nature was providing the light show "our" doe was settling down in a quiet corner of the garden.

    Lovely @steephill :)
    I managed to narrowly miss running one over the other day coming home  ;)
    I didn't take many pix that as it was just a quick outing up and down. Just clear enough to make out the Arrochar hills thirty miles away



    I had my camera with me the other day in the hope of getting a pic of the shaggy inkcaps, but they had opened. I always love seeing this tree growing out the old tree stump though. Nature is very tenacious  ;)

    Lovely thread @Fairygirl. I've just got a new camera but haven't left home much either like @Busy-Lizzie . You've inspired me to make an effort this week. For now though this is the view from my garden terrace. The collegial is a lovely building and we're looking forward to the completion of the renovation of the old tower opposite, currently clad in scaffolding.

    Lovely @D0rdogne_Damsel. Beautiful buildings make lovely subjects.  :)

    I think many people have been looking inwards a lot in the last six months, but when you have a camera in your hand, it makes you look outwards instead, and lifts the spirits   :)

    I do have some photos that I took in late spring/early summer during the lockdown period when I was in Norfolk. I discovered a lot of bridle paths near our cottage when I went out for my regular exercise walks. I hardly met a soul. The countryside is very different from @Fairygirl's countryside, most flat and green. They are just snapshots, not skilled photography.
