Patti at Lens-Artists is inviting us to share images that have been cropped in some way.

When taking these pictures I wasn’t aware that another walker had slipped into the left of the frame until it was too late. The photographs were taken in burst-mode, so I had to crop every capture.

We hope you’re keeping safe, well and warm and wish you all a beautiful Tuesday!

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Lois! Burst mode is a mode you can select on many bridge and other cameras that enables you to take a whole sequence of shots in rapid succession while keeping the shutter button down. Usually you can select how many frames you’d like to shoot per burst (I tend to select twenty, as it suits Eivor and Pearl’s running style). Sports Mode is usually an auto-setting for action shots. I rarely use this as I prefer to photograph in aperture priority with a high shutter speed (between 1/1000 – 1/2000 s). I hope this helps! xxx

  1. They are having so much fun kicking up the sand in their wake. Love the Haiku. “Spring flurries” brings to mind so many things – carpets of tree blossoms falling to the ground, fields of wildflowers blooming, the flurry activity of birds building their nests, etc.
