Amelia Island Adventure Day 4

There are a number of these beautiful fountains on Centre Street and neighboring area in the historic section of Fernandina.   It took several tries before I got the camera settings right to capture the water drops.  I get so frustrated sometimes that I am sorely tempted to switch back to aperture priority mode rather than manual, but I did get it right in the end.


The skies are so gorgeous just before dawn.  I couldn't resist taking my camera with me on my morning walk.  It gets a bit heavy hanging around my neck, but scenes like this are well worth it.

So lovely. Those fountains are gorgeous - well done for persevering with manual, it was worth it! Your beach shot is lovely too, so peaceful. Happy weekend. :)

Catching that water is so tricky. Don't give up on Manual mode though.

these are awesome and good for your to stick to the manual mode until you got it. Now for me it's just remembering the same settings next time.
found you on Kim Klaussen - Friday Finds.
