Friday In Pictures

I have been greatly enjoying my Panasonic Lumix FZ300 and I have packed more photos than I can handle into my Google account. I hope they give you some cheer this Friday still in winter.
The joys of the telephoto lense, a single non removable 25-600mm job augmented to 2400mm (!) digitally. The modern camera electronics astonish me. 
The camera is rainproof, dustproof (they say) and has built in wi-fi making it simple to transfer pictures to my iPhone where I can adjust them and post them in the normal way.
I enjoy my iPhone camera of course but the Lumix does add a couple of extra dimensions, distance shots and depth of field which latter is bit more subtle in a digital camera than an old SLR.
The digital camera even when set to f2.8 struggles to overcome and compensate making it trickier than I expected to get decent depth of field. 
But I do like playing with the manual settings and some of the custom features too.

Some pretty pictures there. The first one and the close up of the flowers are my two favorites. Happy Friday.

I very much like the atmosphere in the monochrome pics. Well done, Michael.
