Post what I have, to hell with the quality

NIKON D70 - 1/2 sec, f25 at 25mm

Every now and then I take a photo that I'm really happy with. Then for the next month I take photos at my normal level of ability. And I struggle to be happy with them and really can't even bring myself to look at them much. 70 photos, 9 are in focus, only 3 of them have a real subject and only 1 of them is even worth considering.

But tonight I kind of decided (again) to hell with that malarky. If it's good enough for Karen to post a picture every day for year (she's only done 7 so far), good and bad (eventually one will be bad) then I can post anything and everything too.

Somewhat unrelated to that, Gabba poured herself a glass of the cooking sherry tonight while she was preparing dinner. Read into that what you may. I offer no explanation, only the observation.

The Photo

It's The Tor. I went down to the beach at sunset tonight. There was nothing worth taking a photo of. But at least I got an hour to myself on the beach.

  • I love this image. It is great. The light, the color, the land something I have never seen. I would love to see something like this in real life and up close. So thanks for sharing. half the fun of visiting a photoblog, is seeing things one can never see.

  • I hope you weren't inferring that this shot was low quality - It really pops out from the sky! There has been some great evening light of late, and I see you are making the most of it.

  • It's a beautiful photo. Majestic. You provided detailed information about the camera settings, but omitted the geographical setting. Where is this?

  • Jim, I've added a map link now. It's The Tor at Waiake Beach in North Shore City, New Zealand
