A favourite fishing spot on a sunny morning:

PS. I would just add that I have a mini tripod, but found that it wasn't really suitable for my Fuji..... i.e. it was too heavy & tended to topple over.

Not sure about the overexposed ones, Ann. Normally when you opt for 'shutter priority', the rest of the camera i.e. aperture, ISO & white balance will remain automatic.

However, if you choose a shutter speed that is way too slow and the camera can't find other compatible settings, the chosen shutter speed will show up in red on your camera display.....and of course isn't advisable to take the shot.

Good exercise and the result for a first effort is marvellous.

A very good effort, Ann.

When we use really slow shutter speeds like this, as well as a tripod/rock/whatever, it's a good idea to use a remote shutter release device to further prevent camera shake. I've found that using the shutter timer to be just as good.

Ps. It shouldn't have been overexposed in shutter priority mode.

Pea gravel I would associate with river tumbled stuff, extracted from massive gravel pits along the Trent flood plain,like at Attenborough. Bulwell,Mansfield woodhouse, quarry lane at Mansfield, and Hardwick have a yellowish sandstone rock. Forest town to the east of Mansfield, was mainly farming area, now housing,further east is clipstone,ollerton,which was coal mining. 

So the mystery continues.

It was just gravel!!!

My grandparents lived in forest town. My cousin still lives there. The nearest  quarries are berry hill, but they are sand.


As I recall, my engineer friend used to travel the length & breadth of the UK to attend his heavy plant machinery. But on this occasion, I do recall that he was working from home.
