Today was an absolutely stunning day - both in the park and on the beaches.  I may have gotten a tad snap-happy...

This is the third day that I've taken my 'real' camera on my morning walks and at the risk of sounding completely full of myself, I do believe that my photography skills are improving.

I am falling in love with my walks on the beach - which take considerably longer now that I take my camera along...

As I mentioned yesterday, the Nikon D7000 has a variety of built-in image editing features - not just red-eye reduction, but a variety of other effects can be applied without having to use specialised computer software.
