Surf's up

whitley bay surfers

New camera.....this was taken from the bottom of the street looking North maybe a mile or so....

full zoom

.....and this one looking South from Marconi Point (on the Whitley Bay/Cullercoats boundary) towards Tynemouth (about 3km as the seagull flies)

So I bought myself a little retirement present, a Fuji Finepix HS10 with an in-built 30x zoom lens (I know my limits, I'd never, ever get around to changing a lens and anyway my camera of those re-usable Co-op carriers, yep, I'm a class act! always filled with onion skins, semi-sucked sweets and half-done crosswords) But the compact still has a safe place in the broad scheme of things, for one thing it fits in my pocket!

It's reassuring to see that the photos taken with the new camera are every bit as good as the ones taken with the old camera :-)
