Hi fron sunny Spain
« on: February 05, 2008, 07:42:51 AM »
Hi to all

I found mention of this site on the DCMag forum so came over for a look and have joined.

A couple of years ago I took early retirement and now live in Spain where I now have chance to extend my photography from just taking snaps to being a bit more creative. For my birthday last year my wife bought me a s/h Canon 20D and 9 months on I am finally getting to grips with it.

If anyone is coming to the Costa Blanca area of Spain on holiday look me up.

Hi Colin, and welcome to CC.  :tup: 

Spain sounds great to me, what's the temperature out there at the moment?  It's blooomin freezing here at the moment.  :(

Thanks for the welcome. It seems like an interesting place.

We only managed 21c  :)today but it has dropped to 8c this evening so the central heating is on :). We haven't had any rain for about 3 weeks and all the almond blossom is out about 3 weeks early.

The biggest challenge out here (apart from the good life) is the light there is too much of it :(. Clear blue skies play havoc with my photography, I was out photographing some of the blossom earlier on in the week and I ended up shooting at 1/3000th when I was doing some macro shots of the bees drinking the nectar. Still someone has to do it  ;)
