I miscalculated little bit. It was cooler than I thought it would be for this morunning’s walk. I suppose I could have turned back and picked up my coat, but it wasn’t really that bad so I decided not to. It was OK, but I will pay a bit more attention before I go out tomorrow morning.
It was very nice to get out for my usual morning walk. It’s surprising the difference a week makes. It was quite dark when I arrived at the waterfront;
The sun isn’t really up, but as I said the other day I need to see this as an opportunity to take other types of night shots. I was looking at shadow areas as I was walking along, but nothing really inspired me. It’s the case though isn’t it of taking a picture, thinking nothing of it and it turns out to be something interesting. I need to try that – just try different things.
I didn’t take the measuring devices with me, I thought I might not have enough light to read the instruments, especially the refractometer which needs a bright source to be readable. As it happens, I needn’t have worried. It’ll be a few days yet before it’s too dim.
There’s also a point where I will need to move from the monopod to the tripod as the gadget stick. Whilst it is a bit of nuisance to have to carry the tripod, it is very effective, it gives me nice steady images and as it is freestanding, it releases a hand for other duties.
Back then into the routine and yet changes are in the offing. We are moving in to the time of year when I have to re-think the way I have been doing somethings over the last few months. Let’s see what it brings.
