My friend recently discovered the thrill of shooting in "M" and encouraged me to take a step away from the "A" setting on my D60 and we spent a gorgeous Sunday afternoon shooting down by the Fraser River.
We parked right under the skytrain tracks
Low tide left little rivulets in the sand
Looking through a knot hole
Solitary rock stranded in sand ripples
Hidden mushrooms on the path above the beach
And I always seem to meet dogs on my photo outings. This beauty was skittish and barky.
But a good lesson: Bright sun + Dalmation + manual settings = many attempts at proper exposure
