Morning sun

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 25 January 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Taken a couple of weeks ago, I woke looked out of the window and rushed out into my garden with the camera.

Canon EOS 500D 1/50 second F/25.0 ISO 100 55 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

BEautiful, Doug!! And am definitely impressed at the clarity of this at 1/50 shutter speed...not normally leaving my camera on the monopod or tripod overnight, I would have been shivering or shaking and the shot would have definitely shown it! This is fantastic ;-)
