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?

Cheers, Dove.....taken in the Peak District, the river Dove as I recall!

That should work fine, Dove. Probably overwatering is the worst your OH could do.

I offer my help willingly here when anyone asks me a specific question. However, I feel when I take the trouble to reply and promptly, I think such a reply deserves to be acknowledged.

Perhaps I was brought up in the old school of manners!
