Moss casting shadows
Moss growing on the old oak beams that line one side of our pond. I like the way the low afternoon sun means that these tiny inflorescences cast such long shadows.
This was a test run for my new camera. My guilt at buying something I can’t afford has pretty much evaporated into excitement on receiving the Lumix TZ30 – it’s rather gorgeous, and so far I think it takes slightly better pictures than the TZ20. I wish I could afford an SLR, but that certainly isn’t on the cards, and to be honest when I’ve had one before I’ve found it too heavy to carry around all the time. The beauty of this compact digital is that it’s light and easy to stick in a bag, which means I usually have it on me when I see something interesting. I like the Lumix TZ series because they take good macro (as close as 5cm away), which is about as good as it gets on a digital compact. I certainly can’t get stunning macro shots with wonderful Bokeh (minimum aperture setting here is 3.3), but it’s a decent trade off considering the advantages, I think. 🙂
