I knew I would regret not taking my DSLR or even my film SLR with me on holiday. It's very hard to force an automatic compact to do what you want it to do when it's not already a function of the camera.
However, I did my best to achieve a bokeh shot of Correlejo, Fuerteventura and also to get the lovely colours of the volcanos of the island, showing in amazing layers under the pink sky.
I also have specs of sand on the lens that I can't seem to remove and they show up in a lot of the photos that I took (meaning it was probably a good thing I didn't take my DSLR).
And lastly, my poor attempt at some aerial photography. I could see the Forth Rail Bridge but the plane was juddering and turning fast and my camera couldn't cope with how dark it was outside the plane window and light inside. Hugest sighs.
However, as it was probably the only time I will get to photograph the bridge from above, here it is for you to see.
