The Coast

[I'm getting bored with posting about Canada, so it's back to our regularly scheduled programming...]

The digital camera/blog combo has really got me interested in photography the past few months, but really I'm only at the "point and shoot" level. I haven't even taken the time to familiarize myself with my cameras and their various functions, and basic things like lighting and horizons still drive me a bit batty (I had a lot of ocean shots ruined by lopsided horizons today; this drives me crazy because when I snap the shot I'm pretty sure I'm holding the camera "straight"... Oh well...). Anyway, if nothing else, I hope that readers can get some idea of what things look like around here. Miyazaki is really quite stunning...

It's really hot and sunny here today, so at lunchtime I figured I'd go for a little drive down the coast and take a few pictures. Actually, I took a shitload. Here a few (click to enlarge):


  1. Thought for the day.
    I am by no means an expert, but am pretty sure that if you use Irfan View (free) you can sort out dodgy horizons relatively easily.
    I saw that as an article while waiting in a Doctors Surgery - in preference to Hello magazine and all the usual guff on the table.

  2. Thanks Merkin, I'll give it a look!
