A Fine Spring Day – At Last!


Blue and Green on a Spring DayIt seemed to take forever. But finally we have A beautiful spring day. Hot and, unusually for the UK, not a cloud in the sky. It was a busy day, with little opportunity to get out with the camera, but this picture of the blue sky contrasted with the new greenery just needed to be taken. Hopefully this will be the first of many days like this!

Photo Notes

Shot with that great little camera, my LUMIX TZ100. Shots are straight out of the camera. In the middle of the afternoon the contrast was high, but still showed off  the green tree against the blue sky.

Little Crab on the Beach at Vilanculos

Little Crab on the Beach

A little crab coming out of his hole on the beach. As you walk along a secluded beach at low tide little mounds of sand next to a hole seem to be all over the place. Many of these are made by little crabs which have been hiding in their burrows during the higher water. Once the surface sand is dry they pop out and go foarging, always with an eye out for danger. Move too close and they will scurry back into their holes.

Photo Notes

The Little Crab was captured on the beach at Vilanculos, Mozambique.

Travelling light (more or less), as we were leaving for an island trip, I had the Canon EOS 60D with the EF 70-300 zoom. These were shot by simply setting the lens at closest focus and moving until the crab was in focus. Hence the short depth of field. All at f/8 1/500 ISO100. These were edited online in Google Photos.
