Last week I was treated to a new camera , for Christmas. But it would have been rude of me not to try it out and make sure it was working properly!
Seems a shame to put it back in the box, will wrap the box instead.
It's all singing and dancing bridge camera,
Panasonic fz 1000
It has many ways to take a photo, but I got it for the fast focus speed. As much as I loved my old camera with it's long zoom lens, most things had disappeared by the time it focused .
So the weather has been pity bad for photography this past week, dull and grey.
Not the best for taking photos.
So having checked the weather it looked like today was my best chance to give it a go.
Golden Acer Park was my best option, you are guaranteed to see wild life here. Friendly Squirrels as long as you have food, the nature reserve at the far end of the park (Adel Dam) where they feed the birds. Today the hide was full of people making the most of the weather, but what was funny............. rather than watching the birds they were all talking, trying to out do each other on what they had seen recently.
The gardens near the coffee house gave me the opportunity to try some macro shots, a few more days out I will get use to all the different settings, as it's been a easy camera to use.
So coming up there are quite a few photos from my three hours at the park!
They will be good to look back on.
