    Took my new Fuji out for a walk with the dog this morning. Went up to Devils Dyke - a beauty spot about 6 miles from my house. Here are my efforts.

    View from the top of the hill.



    And again across the South Downs and West Sussex



    Willow having a sniff around.



    And another part of the South Downs.



    Very pleased with this one.



    Need to work on that focus though...



    Hunted out a couple of geocaches while we were there. Can you see it hiding?



    Willow tries to do a runner.



    Some yellow flower things.




    This is the village of Fulking - be careful how you spell it. ;)



    Willow having a rest



    Willow having a mad moment.




    And a couple more from the top of the hill, playing with the zoom.

    Hope you kept it on a leash

    Brilliant shots though, great that somewhere so picturesque is so close! I like the one of willow having a mad moment LOL

    Do you do much geocaching and how many of them are there around nowadays?

    Those are wonderful photos Dawn. I love the last one. I like your dog too! Is your camera a big thing with a huge lens or is it quite compact?

    I've been caching for a couple of months and found about 40 so far. I've found lovely places that I never knew existed just by following this. Check out www.geocaching.com and you can find out how many are near you. There are hundreds with 20 miles of me so I'm keeping busy.

    Claire I would call it a comfortable handful. :rofl:

    It's definitely not a shoveinthepocket type of camera but I found it very easy to handle - didn't have to fiddle around for buttons - could reach them all without changing grip or having to look for them. I'm very pleased with it.

    Great photos Dawn

    I would love to get into Geocaching if I had the time, did you know that one was around or did you just stumble across it?

    She's adorable! Lovely Photo's!

    You need to get a tortoise, that looks like a brilliant weed hunting place! In the grass is vetch, white clover, red clover and also some hawksbit, everything in there except the buttercups are good tortoise fodder :D

    Brilliant pics
