Seaford Head

...also known as Wake up and smell the flowers! Part II

This morning we went for a walk on the cliffs from Seaford Head towards Seven Sisters, and back. It was such a beautiful day that we found ourselves sighing out of delight every few minutes, and without noticing, ended up walking so far that we had to hurry back in order to get into London (to meet up with a friend) on time.

Canon IXUS 850 is a great little camera to carry in the pocket and snap away with, but it does have its limits when it comes to image quality. Apart from having a rather grainy pixel quality compared to larger sensored SLRs, in the above photo you can see vignetting (=darker corners) and barrel distortion that causes the horizon to bend. But not so much that it disturbs the "untrained eye"; I doubt any non-photographer even noticed it before I mentioned anything.

Yesterday we drove to Beachy Head.

It was a very windy day.

So windy that in places Zebedee had to brace himself against the wind even when just standing in one place.
