A beautiful frosty morning with wonderful pastel shades in the dawn light made it too good an opportunity not to take yet another couple of photos of the view over Loch Alsh. This was one my first attempt at taking a photo on the tripod with the mirror lock-up function active. This is used for timer-release photos, with a slow shutter speed and basically moves the mirror out of the way a couple of seconds before the actual photo is taken to remove any camera shake caused by the mirror moving. I had a close look at it and it certainly seems a bit sharper. The same applied to the following which was a panorama shot and it worked well.
I am an amateur photographer who is also a Chartered Geographer (GIS) with his own part-time consultancy business and I work as an estate manager for a national conservation charity in Scotland. I am based in Lochalsh, Wester Ross, Scotland, just next to the Isle of Skye.
