Beautiful day, beautiful view

2/52 for the group 2018 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: B is for Beautiful

After what has seemed like weeks of gloomy grey wet weather, the sun came out last Sunday. It was very cold, but still beautiful.

Beautiful day, beautiful view

I went for a walk, partly to enjoy the sunshine but also to experiment with taking videos. I have a project in mind that involves making short videos in Welsh, which will be a huge learning curve as I need to learn a) how to make videos and b) how to edit videos, neither of which I've ever done before.

I'll explain more when the idea has progressed a bit further and I've confirmed that it is actually doable. Ideally I would like a proper video camera, probably a DSLR that will take video. But I know me and my wonderful ideas for major projects. Having the idea is brilliant. Actually achieving it is hard work and sometimes proves too much and the idea gets quietly shelved, never to be heard of again.

So... I will start the project with what I have, which is basically my phone, plus a lapel microphone, a couple of tripods and a selfie-stick and see how it goes. If it goes well, a few months in, I might feel justified in buying a new camera, but that's not going to happen until I've proved that the project is viable and is not just going the fizzle out.
