SP INTAKE - Me as Myself


Alone in the woods making a fool of myself! I took a whole load of these but they didn't turn out as good as they could have as I didn't check the camera settings. I had previously put the camera on manual focus as it was having trouble focusing on Wandering Juanita. Fortunately it was on f18 so it was acceptable or I would have had to go back and do it all again. I can never tell if anything is properly in focus or not from the camera screen even with my glasses on and zooming in. It is not until I get it back on the computer that I can tell.
The green wellies were my Christmas Present from Geoff. My old ones were letting in water. These ones are neoprene and much warmer so you don't have to wear extra socks. Wellies are very British and Green Wellies are very British Country Style. But these are actually French Wellies. You may or may not know that Wellies are Wellingtons named after the Duke of Wellington who may or may not have worn them. They are the best thing to wear in the winter in the wet. But this winter we have not had enough wet. Believe it or not there are hosepipe bans in many parts of the country.
