I was never very good with the technical side of stuff.
I left my camera on the wrong white balance K (kelvin) setting and all my pictures came out inky.
These are the few I managed to salvage...well sort of. They still look a little alien to me.
Oh well - at least it was a beautiful day for a two mile hike and a stroll along the beach. Even if several dogs did try and knock me off balance as I wobbled precariously on my squatted heels trying to capture 'that' perfect picture.
