Hello there! I have many posts to write up about the things that we got up to and so whenever I have a free moment I will be busy! As I'm writing this, the washing machine is on the go as is the tumble dryer. It's nice to go away but not so nice coming back! There's piles and piles of laundry to shift through.
Anyhow, this post is about our trip to Forde Abbey. We have taken out another annual subscription as it is a place that we come back to time and time again - the dogs are allowed in the gardens and in the large refectory.
Sorry that this post again is photo heavy. My only defence is that I have the photographers bug - I want to take more photos to try and improve!
I find it difficult to use the manual setting as it takes too long when you're out and about fussing and faffing so what I've been doing is using the semi-automatic options which are far easier. In this post I used the Aperture Setting and I think I'm beginning to get the hang of it all! A small Aperture number for close up shots and a bigger Aperture number when you want a bigger depth of field when you want everything to look clear with no background fuzziness.
The highlight of this trip to me was seeing this little robin, who chirruped away, not minding that the dogs were so close by.
You can see his open beak in this shot.
George amongst the daffodils!

Our tutor on the Photography Course told us that to get good skin glow you should use a golden background.
"Look at me, I'm in prison!" said KP - hopefully not a sign of things to come!
Until next time,
