Watchet is one of our favourite coastal towns to visit and being just 15 miles away is one of the closest. The town itself is over 1000 years old with the harbour being used for trade over many centuries. Now it is a pleasure marina.
I took the opportunity to try out my new camera and had lots of fun 'zooming' around!
I have to say the zoom is pretty amazing! In the middle of this picture on the horizon there is an island - Steep Holm.
Here is Steep Holm taken from the same spot on the harbour wall with my zoom
and the Welsh coast
and the new reactor at Hinkley Point.
Note the blue sky in the above pictures - this was the view looking in to Watchet
Fortunately the rain took it's time in arriving.
The macro also works well
and you can't beat a bit of rust!
Amazing zoom! It's better than some binoculars. You're gonna have so much fun with it I'm sure. Enjoy! ;^)ReplyDelete
What a pretty town that is Lin ... & right on the seaside too. Just lovely. xxReplyDelete
Lovely pictures - impressed with the zoom. I love just ambling around the villages there...ReplyDelete
It sounds as if you enjoyed a wonderful day catching all the sights of Watchet with your new camera, Lin. I'm with you re the rust; I'm rather partial to it myselfReplyDelete
You are lucky to be so close to the coast. I still prefer to use my camera for taking pictures.ReplyDelete
Thank you for taking me on another outing. Your picture are great.ReplyDelete
What fun to go somewhere lovely and play with your new camera!ReplyDelete
Great photos with your new camera!ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos with your new camera Lin, looks like a great day out.ReplyDelete
How clever to be sewing a pouch. I wish I could do that. Meanwhile, great photos especially the last one. And do you mind saying what kind of camera you got that can do macro as well?ReplyDelete
Watchet looks well worth a trip - and a proper exercise for the new camera!ReplyDelete
Now that is what I call a Zoom. What a pretty place to visit.ReplyDelete
I just love your photos of your beautiful home. It is so different from where I live. It is nice to visit virtually!ReplyDelete
I had to go and look at goggle maps to see where you were..........I had no idea you could see Wales across the water.....blogging is always teaching me things.....ReplyDelete
