Frank at the Giant's Causeway

Home with a hundred of the worst photographs that I've taken in a long time! The light was so intense today that the auto setting on the cameras just couldn't cope! I'll put some of Frank's page and on the blog ... but am not impressed.
The blog: http://therevandadog.blogspot.com/2010/10/2010365283-frank-explores.html and Frank's page:

Still a really nice photo Elizabeth. Really want to visit the Giant's Causeway some day, it sounds like a stunning piece of landscape.

The sun is often one of the biggest things that I fight with in photography as well. I am learning to battle it with manual settings from my class, but it's still difficult. So I understand. I like this picture....I really looks like Frank is real and ready to run off and enjoy himself. Where does he travel to next? I'm going to miss him!

@mrssmith Frank had a change of plans and is travelling just across Ireland to the west, County Mayo. Hopefully you can still follow his Facebook page .... most of those who have him upload photographs. I need to learn how to use the manual settings for lighting like today....

I feel for you. I have spent many a day where I took images of Utopia, only to upload them and see that the balance was "less than stellar".

Great shot of Frank....and the shots on Frank's FB page are extraordinary! What a great way to share Ireland with others! I had not heard of the Giant Causeway...so I searched the Internet...most interesting! Great legend(s) that surround this place...and your shots were better than some of those!

Frank is having the time of his life. I have had those photograph days too...

Oh yes, I know that as well. But Frank seems to enjoy his journey.

Nice shot - I like the stones in the background!

Do I hear you complaining about a beautifull bright, sunny day?! hehe... This of Frank is a nice photo...I'm sure his family will be delighted to see where he's been!

Oh, I've wandered about this amazing place. I bet Frank was just impressed as I was with the uniqueness of the formations. (What did he think? Did I giant cause these?) :-)

@Weezilou "Guilty as charged, m' lud"! Well - complaining about the intense light rather than the beautiful warm sunshine. Part of the trouble was I had a handbag and not my usual doggie bag .... it is open top and easy to get camera out .... and it doesn't slip off my shoulder... trying to take pictures and manage dog and toy skunk.... too much hassle!! His owner is often in email contact and I think is enjoying his travel pictures.

@Swazzette Isn't it a great place! Of course it was built by a giant Fionn mac Cumhaill. It really is wonderful but yesterday was crowded with tourists!! Normally I go in the middle of winter when there's no one there at all... then it is magnificent in its isolation and amid the rough Atlantic seas.

This place looks really beautiful. I like the angle of the pic.

These rocks look amazing! I'll bet Frank had a grand time!
