Quick update & daily photo

The forecast said there might be sun breaking through the cloud this afternoon, but though the rain has stopped, the sky remains completely grey. Tomorrow is supposed to be better, but I've given up and just taken today's photo from my study window. Even though it's only 2.15 p.m. the light is beginning to fade so it won't get any better than it is now.

I've been watching some interesting videos on YouTube by a landscape photographer who has been wandering around in some very unpromising weather and managing to get some beautiful shots. Of course he's a professional and can therefore justify spending all day out on the hills, but even though I'm retired, I can't really do that. But I was interested to see that he was using a long lens to take photos of landscape. I've never thought to do that, so I will be experimenting during the rest of the month.

This is not perfectly sharp. I always forget that it's virtually impossible to handhold the long lens unless the light is very bright. But I only committed to taking a photo every day. I didn't promise they'd all be good! :)
