It was almost dark when I took these photos today. I was finished walking and it was so hard to see along the trail that runs around the edge of the property so I quit early and went in to get the camera.
It still had the 50mm lens on it from using it at school today. That lens lets in a lot of light, so I decided to leave it on and hurried out the door.
I ended up turning the ISO up to 1600 to get these shots.
I mean, it was full on dusk and difficult to see out there. Today was wicked in the weather department and it did just what the weatherman told us it would do. We had a lot of rain and wind and by the afternoon it was downright cold.
The 50mm is a fixed lens, so to compose your shot, you have to physically place yourself in the right spot.
For those new to this blog, this is where my husband and I live. We don’t own it, though. We’re the caretakers of this old manor house on the hill. The original house (on the left) was built in 1769 and the big section was added on in 1810.
It got too dark to shoot anything and besides, I was tired from my day. Can you see George running on the lawn?
Thanks to everyone for entering my latest Giveaway. I’ll try to have another one during the holiday season. Check out my free desktop download on the post below, too.
Until tomorrow, then . . .
