Karoo cottages at moonlight

Ok, so its not the second installment of the Settler story yet, but that will still come. Last Thursday I took the step up from my compact digital camera and bought myself a new camera. Ok, so the budget does not allow for a professional camera with different lenses, but it did allow a Fujifilm Finepix S8000 with 8 megapixels and 18x optical zoom. I took it along to Cradock for our weekend away and here follows the first post of a pic taken with it. Why this one? Cause I would not be able to take it with my old camera.

We stayed at Die Tuishuise, a street of historic cottages which have been restored and furnished with antique furniture. It was the night before full moon and I had to try this. Could have let in a bit more light, but I'm still learning the camera.


  1. Cool moon shot! I like how it looks like daylight (the moon) with the night house in front.

    Glad the new cam is working out for you. It is a good one. Fuji has awesome sensors. We expect more pictures now.....:-)

  2. I agree with Perry,the moon gives the cottages a lovely warm glow, have fun with your new camera, its great experimenting and trying out new stuff. I cant wait to see results.
