I have not been taking photos very long bought my first camera in 2012 a second hand Pentax K10 purchased on EBay

I upgraded to a Pentax K5 in 2013 again second hand Pentax K10 purchased on EBay

During 2014 I decided to sell my Pentax and bought a second hand Sony Nex 7 and then a Sony A6000
In 2015 I purchased a Sony A7ii and decided to keep my Sony A6000 after sellinmg the Nex 7 to a friend

I love my new camera and I go out with my camera several times each week

This shot was taken the first day that I had the Sony Nex 7

It was taken late at night it was that dark and all I could see was the silhouette of the windmill I had to guess the position of the camera. also I was not familiar with the camera settings I had to use the light from my mobile phone to see the camera and locate the shutter button

I took 5 shots before I managed to get the camera in the correct position without cutting off the windmill sails

This photo has not been edited it is as taken

I have had this photo printed on a canvas and I am proud to have it showing on my lounge wall
