Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is down at the Canal.

A couple of wweks back saw a bright, almost cloudless morning & too good of a chance to pass up to visit the Forth & Clyde Canal. These following shots were taken down at Lock 20, nr Banknock.

A Dawn Walk With Lensy Pt 3 — Fan Of… #108

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is a dawn walk with Lensy.

Nearing the end of my walk with Lensy, the path goes into some woodland. Near the start were a couple of decent stumps with good lighting which was too good an opportunity to pass up.

A Dawn Walk With Lensy Pt 1 — Fan Of… #106

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is a dawn walk with Lensy.

Owing to lockdown restrictions & a high workload, I haven’t been out with Snappy (DSLR) & Lensy (lensball) since my visit to Palacrigg Country Park on New Years Day. I got the chance to get out last week & was up at Fannyside Lochs, within Palacerigg Country Park for sunrise. I took full advantage of clear conditions & plenty of posts & stumps to put Lensy on & took about 250 shots in total (don’t worry, they’re not all with lensy ๐Ÿคฃ). I started up at the Lochs & then followed numerous trails back towards home. I’ve split up the walk into 3 distinct phases: Fannyside Lochs (today’s post), walking through the park (pt 2) & some woodland pics (pt 3).

When Photography Goes Wrong — An Unfortunate Silhouette ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I was out with Lensy for a dawn walk yesterday, visiting what has become my favourite sunrise spot. There’s a post that Lensy usually sits on for his shoot, but I found a new seat for him.
