Moonlight Serenade

By MrsS    
Hi All - Happy Sunday! The good news is that in two weeks time, Christmas will be a distant memory and the shops will have returned to "normal" ready for the sales!!!

Anyway, on a brighter note - here is THE VERY FIRST IMAGE that I took in anger with my new camera & lens.

When we arrived at LLanddwyn, the Boss already had his spot sorted, and I kinda like this area, so I toddled off on my own. It was really dark (apart from the moonlight) and I couldn't see where anything went on the piccy box, and just had my head-torch to come to my aid(which is about as good as the proverbial chocolate teapot for close-up work).

Consequently, much swearing and muttering about a "d@mn stupid thing" (or words to that effect) ensued, followed by a hasty call to the Boss for help.

I did eventually get things sorted, good job too, as I really liked the way the moon was lighting up the lighthouse and rocks.

As for the serenade bit, it was probably a good job there was no-one around to hear my wailings, as several words are not able to be repeated here! Wink

Right, off to finish the Chrissie decs, and to have a glass or two of the red stuff, in between tending to my poorly little girl, who is suffering with pleurisy (all say ahhhhhhh!) Smile

Thanks for calling in, have a great evening.

Love the depth of colour here Fran,your swear words obviously worked Wink
Just a tad of haloing around the tops of the cliffs on my monitor though...much more evident in the larger view Sad

Hope your daughter is soon on the mend.

Thanks Chris, Scott, Janet & TheW Smile

Missed that Janet - Paul always says that I take a reasonable shot & then ruin it with the processing Wink

Dead Man Walking, Rich - guess you didn't want to see Rhodd Gilbert after all! Tongue

A nice quiet soft colours image with the long exposure adding the serenade, nice work with a new and wonderful camera. You'll never look back now.
