As I write this it is just about 24 hours since I received my new camera through the post. It is far far too early to give any reasoned views about the machine but first impressions are….well impressive. This morning it was up with the dawn chorus, this being early autumn, that means a more manageable 6:00am. When you venture out into my local park at that day you tend to meet early morning dog walkers and their usually very friendly dogs. Today was no exception and I really don’t mind that but you do have to make it clear to the dog that the lens of my camera is not a place for them to stick their big black damp nose!
Talking of dampness I really need to put on my waterproof boots from now on as the grass is covered in dew and my summer shoes are not, that is an understatement, very waterproof. But it was a beautiful morning and not too chilly so I didn’t mind that much.
Another thing you get at this time of the day are the canadian geese moving from their nighttime roost to their morning feeding place. Now this isn’t as impressive as the winter dawn flights of barnacle geese but is now part of the Leicestershire ecosystem and should accepted.
