Only a slight problem getting up this morning. No issues falling asleep last night, the issue was waking up at about 0330 and having trouble getting back to sleep, and then do I get so around 5AM ish, waking up at 0537. If you are with me on FB, you will see how waking up after 0535 flusters me. Ridiculous!
The walk itself was as usual very pleasant. Not many people about only a couple of regulars and only one of those that I speak to, Bob, who is always outside Greggs having his breakfast We always exchange pleasantries when I go past.
Normally, I use a monopod to hold my phone when I take my morning photos, recently, they have been a bit more fuzzy than I was happy with. The only way I could think of fixing that is to use my tripod.
There is a significant difference between a monopod and a tripod; weight and bulk being two of the main factors. I also found the tripod head a bit fiddly. But there is a definite improvement in the results. I think I will try this for a few days.
Just watched the forecast for tomorrow. It’s debatable whether the weather will be OK for me to walk. Heavy winds and rain are promised. I think that if it is only slightly bad I will still walk, it should be an interesting morning.
