Hi, folks....op over,  fit & well again - many thanks for your kind wishes. Unfortunately, the nature of the beast dictates that I need to wear an eye patch for another couple of days & avoid eye I'll be limiting my browsing time.

Anyway, congratulations on your recent pics (I'm squinting)......and, KEF, Ann is quite right, press your Coolpix shutter button down until resistance is felt, this focuses your shot before pressing it down fully. If you press down fully, your shots will be out of focus slightly.

Well, as you mention it, Nikki, I list fishing amongst my interests and am rarely without my camera when I go.

To appreciate this picture you'll need to understand that this was taken just as dawn was breaking during the past lovely summer.

Good luck with your new tripod, Nikki. As for being a 'novice', I most certainly am too, but have learned a few bits & bobs since joining our local camera club...using the self-timer when you don't have a tripod at hand being a case in point.

Bark chippings, leaf mould or anything that hasn't already decomposed.

" the Peak District pic!" 

Quite an easy shot to take, Nikki 

The light was good and in the absence of a tripod I decided to site the camera on the conveniently situated rocks at the side of the river (this gave the low angle effect) also used the self-timer avoided camera shake.

The camera was set on shutter priority at something like 1/3rd sec.

Paddy - Be assured this is a peaceful thread and will remain so while I have anything to do with it.

Did you have a sweet pea query?
