Photographing Water Droplets

I have not attempted this before so I thought I would give it a shot. I am amazed with the outcome! I have taken a shot of my setup so that you can see just how easy it is to capture these kinds of images.

I set my Nikon D800 in manual mode and used a shutter speed of 1000/s @ F16 and the built in flash as a commander for my Nikon SB900. I have included a picture taken on my iPhone of the setup I used. Great fun and thoroughly recommended.

A Trip to Tollard Royal in Wiltshire

This weekend we stayed in a beautiful B+B called Park Farm House in Tollard Royal (Salisbury). The scenery alone was going to make for a superb stay however on arriving at our B + B we were greeted and welcomed by the lovely Sarah & Jasper who made our stay delightful. Highly recommended and deserves 5 stars without a doubt!

Tollard Royal is a village and civil parish on Cranborne Chase, Wiltshire, England. The parish is on Wiltshire’s southern boundary with Dorset and the village is 6 miles (10 km) southeast of the Dorset town of Shaftesbury. The “Royal” in the toponym refers to the royal hunting lodge that was used for hunting on the Chase.

The weather today topped 32 degrees C and so the walking we had planned turned into a  lots of driving with the air conditioning on full blast and a pub garden. We managed to take some lovely pictures today and look forward to your comments.
