Playing with the camera

This time at Springmaid Beach is affording me much leisure time for reading long-neglected books, fiction and non, and for playing with the camera, especially working on the basics of exposure.

This palmetto tree shadow image was taken yesterday after our pancake breakfast. Not only were the trees and their shadows intriguing, I was also in the flight path of the airport across US17 from Springmaid Beach. The air traffic, a mix of commercial and military, added considerable interest to my time outside, not to mention much faster-moving shadows than I could capture.

And, I did it again ... dragged myself out of bed to capture the sunrise only to return to my spot between the covers for a pre-breakfast nap.
