KN3A5482(sm)A morning at the beach was postponed today when the day began overcast. It was still warm but not the best day we have had – so a good excuse for a morning of family game of “Uno”.

KN3A5465(3)(sm) (And a chance for me to remember I brought my speedlite with me and to practise using it as I rarely get it out as I don’t know what I am doing . The first photo below shows how it SHOULDN’T be done-  the flash is a little overpowering in that one but I am more pleased how the others turned out! It’s still VERY much trial and error as i much prefer to use natural light where possible  –  these were with the flash bouncing off the ceiling with the flash set to +2/3. Any advice on using it appreciated!)

KN3A5422(sm)After the first game ended in tears (Dx is NOT a good loser!) we divided into teams for the rest of the games.
