Clyde Birch...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...another totally different image from my mini visit to the Riverside Museum, the cold was bitter along the water's edge, even with several layers under my berghaus.

This is my second image with the tiny Sigma DP2Merrill, quite a change from the much larger Canons I normally use.

You can still have fun with a little'un Dougie, and that's a lovely image. I've got one of those in my garden. The Birch, that is.

Great result. You've made something beautiful out of a view that most people would not even notice. That's good photography!

Deliciously uncomplicated, beautiful colour. Birch trees are perhaps my favourites.

It's the autumn colours that really make this one, Dougie........I doubt the greens of summer would have as much effect.
I too will be interested to see how you get on with this camera.......possibly for not dissimilar reasons I acquired the NEX-7, so much lighter to lug around. Have fun with
Are you still using your Fuji as you were getting great results from it?
Ronnie the Fuji was in the bag with the Sigma.
The Fuji has a viewfinder which makes it easier to use than the Sigma but it could be that I need more practise with the camera and it's focusing system and then I'll be better placed to judge it. Watch this space my friend.

My favourite tree against an abstract background. What more could I ask?

I have for the most part given up carrying large cameras - my Lumix and my Olympus EM-5 give so much more pleasure as they do not weigh on my shoulders.

Lovely graceful natural lines against a geometric background make this one stand out.

I love the verticals of the tree against the verticals of the panels on the building. They go well together Dougie.
