Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

New camera, 31.5.2017.

As I mentioned in my last post I bought a new camera on Sunday from John Lewis in Handforth.
I took it to Etherow today with the intention of giving it a good trial, but was met there by my Pall Bob and his wife and was invited to the Windmill with them for dinner!, I said I would have to pop Pepe home and met them there as it's too hot to leave him in the car this weather.
Thought it didn't seen too hot outside, it soon get's very hot in the car, I remember asking in the car show room about the roof opening we used to have in the older cars and was told you don't need it these days with Air Conditioning!, which as I said at the time it doesn't help when you switch off and leave the car!.
Still on to the camera.
When I got home sat in the garden and got the new camera out and gave it a few snap's.

Notice the bird on the chimney on the house opposite, No!

This is it! and that's without a tripod to steady the camera.
As it say's in most of the reviews I checked out on the net, the Zoom is its selling point I think.

Sat on this.
Needs the chimney pointing perhaps!.


Looking further to the right 



My red Tug boat.

Needs a paint touch up as well

General View.

My Green Goddess, not looking too bad after a second winter.

Macro view of my Clematis, 'Josephine' 

The Flapping 'Duckie' in the wind

The 'Lad' looking a tad warm in this weather but he was only washed and trimmed last week and he could go indoors and lie on his cool mat!.

So it's looking like a thumbs up for the camera, will try it on the wildlife tomorrow.
What is the camera you ask.
What a gorrp , its a Nikon Coolpix P900.

This is a better way to shoot wildlife don't you think instead of with a gun, how can you justify that as sport!!.

My mother-in -law paid me a compliment the other day, 
She said I was a perfect idiot!

  1. Superb photographs Peter, really impressed with them.
    Better than seeing the actual chicks when you can bring them in so close.
    Well done Duckie
