A Day for Snoozing on the Sofa!

Hi Woofers!

We are back again!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Well, the weather man got it right this time, blooming cold it was this morning!

In fact the ferrets all decided that they would stay at home today and let us woofers out on our own!

We let The Missus take the small car up to the village hall on her own 'cos Old Two Legs said that he fancied testing the heated seats in the big car!

Both Holly and I tested the passengers heated seat and it passed the test!

There is nothing like a warm tail when you are sitting in a cold car!

There were no clouds in the sky so that means frost on the grass and on the sand and on the benches!

It also means the sunrise will have some amazing colours as well!

We made it before the sun today!
Both Holly and I had our 'Flying Jackets' so we were not too cold and the frost on the long grass kept away from our tummies!

It also means I can get a roll on the sand as well!

Coming back we stopped at the bench on top of the hill and OTL got all 'Arty' with the camera and took a picture of the bench top.

Trouble was, he forgot that the large aperture on the camera means a shallow depth of field and you can see the camera is focused up on the centre of the bench and everything else is 'Soft Focus'!

Well, you can see the frost anyway!
We decided that OTL had earned a rest and as TM wasn't around to tell him off, we enjoyed a DVD until lunchtime when it was time for a trip down the beach again.

OTL had been thinking about the bench and when we got to it he set up the camera on the bench with an aperture of F22, focused on the centre of the bench again and set the shutter release to delay for five second, placed the camera on the bench and stood back!


Now, all we need is a sunrise, a few clouds and some more frost!
OK, the bolt heads in the foreground are not in focus but the rest looks OK!

As he didn't have his mobile phone with him, he didn't have his program to set the depth of field but it don't look too bad!

We took a look at the program and at the settings, the closest focus is 65mm which would be just the other side of the bolt heads and the far focus would be 2.149m, that's why the ship is out of focus!

Oooo! Don't you just love it when we get all technical?

Tomorrow we are expecting it to be a little warmer so the ferrets can come out with us!

Bye bye for now!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.
