Ready settings go..

Oh I dont know.
It is frustrating working so many weekends, day off today though and out with Stewart. Where to go and what to do?.
A nice mild and dry day, fairly bright but breezy and still early in the year. Snowdrops in full flower but we are a little short of full springtime just yet.
Stewart has an itch that needs scratching and I was only to pleased to help. We headed for Beadnell and Seahouses with a borrowed lens from the very helpful Gary Woodburn and started snapping, discussing, adjusting settings and comparing images.
Seahouses Harbour was the main focus (pardon the pun) of our efforts. A very interesting and enjoyable couple of hours was spent enjoying , amongst others, one of Northumberlands very special birds. The Eider.

Collared Dove
My photographs were taken with my bridge camera of course, thought I needed a disclaimer in there..Collared Doves were taken as we walked down the edge of Quarry Field on the southern side of Seahouses adjacent to the Golf Course.
