At very long last the adapter has arrived for my camera, so that I can use my new lens. I can’t tell you how much I have been itching to get my hands on it!

All fired up and snap happy, I took a few random shots around the place. I really need to re-introduce myself to the camera now it has it’s fancy new lens on, but even just pointing and shooting I can see the massive improvement.

It just might be love!

This picture goes some way towards capturing the ethereal light from the woods on the hill above on a misty day. It stars my shed, unfortunately, and what you might not be able to tell is that this is taken looking straight up a 45degree hill. The shed is as high as our roof.

The adapter has barely arrived in time to take some pictures of the new jewellery hot off my work bench at the moment for the BCTF in less than 3 weeks. Eeek!

I’ve shot my blue bottles before, but every time I go into the kitchen their total blueness mesmerizes me again!
