Gottskär yesterday; this photo looks monochrome, but is actually color.
Welcome to Gottskär in October.
This is a rocky beach at the Särö nature preserve "Särö Naturreservat" in Sweden. There are many kilometers of walking paths.
It's a popular place; only a few decades ago this was a summer favorite of the royal family.
Friendly dog, nice lady, permission to take their picture, what could go wrong. Lens is a Minolta MC ROKKOR-PF 50 mm F1.7 from 1970.
It's a manual-focus lens and I didn't take the five seconds needed to use focus-checking to guarantee that the picture was in-focus.
Result is an out-of-focus photo.
I over-sharpened this and pushed up the clarity to show just how badly focused it really is.
I hope I've learned my lesson today.
There's been rain here every day the last few weeks, and there will be rain every day from now until the end of October.
I ain't going outside into that!
Will post anything I get a chance to shoot.
