I’ve been experimenting with low camera angles – something that hasn’t been so easy with my Canon 6D, since it doesn’t have an articulated viewfinder, so to get shots like these you normally have to lie on the ground if you want to see what you’re taking. But the built-in wifi means that you can, instead, put the camera down low and use your phone as a viewfinder, which is what I did today.
The shallow depth of field was deliberate – I quite like the effect.

Spotted in Ilfracombe last week. I used to think Bond Bugs were so cool when I was young.
At Baggy Point, near Croyde, Devon
East Anglia seems rather tame today. This was the view, a few yards outside our door, last weekend.
…on thy cold, grey stones, O sea!
Just back from a wonderful few days in Devon, staying in a former lighthouse-keeper’s cottage. It was very windy, very cold, but also very sunny and very beautiful. And the cottage was warm and cosy.
Oh, to be in England, now that April’s (almost) here…
